SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Avaya today released its annual Corporate Responsibility Report, illustrating the company's key achievements in 2018 for making a positive difference in the world through its employees, technology, customers and supply chain.

“We take great pride in our history – while our mission, vision and continued success are firmly rooted in looking towards the future,” said Jim Chirico, Avaya President and CEO. “This includes our obligation to ensure that this future is sustainable. The breadth of Avaya’s sustainability efforts this year is unparalleled, driven by incredible Avayans who champion community, diversity and positive environmental change and continue to push the limits of possibility.”

Highlights of the report include:

  • Continued progress in proactive efforts to mitigate climate change, including exceeding the goal to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions and achieve a cumulative 40% reduction from 2014 baselines.
  • Improving sustainability by minimizing the environmental impact of the company’s solutions and services and exploring ways to eliminate single-use plastic packaging.
  • Avaya employees and partners mobilized to create a healthier planet through education, awareness and volunteer efforts.
  • The company enhanced opportunities to develop cultural connections globally with the launch of unique talent exchange and education programs.
  • Raising nearly $175,000 during the company’s annual Month of Giving through donations, fundraising activities and volunteering, all to benefit charities worldwide.
