Kubus Group Achieves Cisco Partner Enviromental Sustainability Specialization
At Kubus we recognise the importance of making a full and lasting commitment to business and environmental sustainability, and as part of that we pledge to help customers migrate to more sustainable options and responsibly dispose – and where possible recycle – old gear.
Today we are delighted to announce that Kubus has achieved the Environmental Sustainability Specialization (ESS) through the Cisco Partner Program. This distinction indicates our team members have successfully completed exams and courses created to help Cisco Partners operationalize environmental sustainability practices.
The ESS entitles Kubus to participate in Cisco’s Takeback Incentive. The incentive helps Partners who pledge to work together with Cisco towards a sustainable future and commit to returning customers’ used hardware so it can be responsibly reused and recycled.
As part of the Environmental Sustainability Specialization, Kubus has signed Cisco’s Sustainability Pledge that supports a commitment made by Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins to have 100 percent product return on end-of-use hardware. This pledge also supports Cisco’s goals to:
- Be net zero across global Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 2040
- Ensure 100 percent of its products and packaging incorporate Circular Design Principles by FY2025
Duncan Imrie, Chief Financial Officer & Sustainability Lead at Kubus commented, “As a trusted Cisco Partner I am delighted that we can link our own sustainability commitments with Cisco’s. This specialization supports our sustainability leadership and our efforts to differentiate in the marketplace, to open up additional sales opportunities among environmentally conscious customers.”
