We use our technology, our expertise, and our resources not only to provide value for our customers, but also to make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet.
Our supply chain is critical to our business success. And how it’s made matters. A responsibly managed supply chain upholds human rights, promotes worker health and well-being, and minimizes negative environmental impacts. It also directly benefits business outcomes, including business security and continuity, worker retention, productivity, and customer satisfaction.
Now more than ever, it’s important that we uphold the high standards for which Cisco is known.

That’s why we have launched our updated Cisco Supplier Guide: Sustainability, Risk and Security as a resource to help support this work and provide further clarity on our specific reporting and compliance requirements. The guide is also available in Mandarin.
As part of our effort to engage suppliers, Cisco uses its Supplier Guide to ensure our supplier network does the following:
Looking ahead, we continue to grow and innovate in our sustainability and risk programs, setting ambitious new goals, collaborating with industry peers, and expanding our scope to deliver value for our business, our customers and our partners.
