Mitigating climate risks and reducing our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are integrated into our long-term strategic planning and operations management.
|Tracking our emissions|
|We recently committed to being carbon neutral across our global operations by 2024, in line with the following scope of activity:|
|Scope 1 Emissions:||Scope 2 Emissions:||Scope 3 Emissions:|
We are also seeking to explore and understand the impact of setting a science-based target for our business in order to more closely align our ambitions with the goals of the Paris Climate Accord, and we will be partnering with a third-party expert in this field to facilitate this objective.
To deliver on our carbon neutrality commitment, we established a new cross-functional Environmental Steering Committee (ESC) in 2020 to provide leadership and oversight for initiatives that support our ongoing commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. Among other things, the ESC will assist the Executive Leadership Team in:
In June 2020, we partnered with Tree-Nation to offset some of our operational emissions by planting a tree for every employee. We continue to grow the Ciena Forest as we gift more trees to new hires, celebrate achievements, and recognize milestones. We also give our employees the option to plant more trees, to become a serial planter, or to share our forest with family and friends, so they can plant their own trees.
Additionally, through this partnership, we took a significant step in October 2020, offsetting 45,623 tons of CO2 by purchasing Verified Carbon Units (VCU) to offset the entirety of our fiscal 2019 business travel and energy consumption emissions, which represent 43 percent of our total emissions for the year.
