  • Key message: We are recognized as a leader for our industry in environmental programs: Here’s a snapshot of some of the programs in which Oracle is a member: U.S. EPA Climate Leaders Program: voluntary industry-government partnership that encourages companies to develop long-term, comprehensive greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. Oracle will achieve these reductions through implementation of its energy efficient strategy. (note: we report to EPA – do not produce a public report.) U.S. EPA Green Power Partnership Program: buying green power an easy and cost effective way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use. Green power is power generated from environmentally preferable renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, low impact biomass, and low impact hydro-mass. Sets goals that member companies purchase 3% of their power from green sources. Oracle has exceeded that percentage. Climate Savers: requires commitment that we proactively enable energy saving features available on our systems, such as “sleep mode” and “stand-by.” Demand response program: stabilizing our requirements/demand during crisis so no one loses power. 14 countries meet ISO 14001 (Accounts for 80% of our footprint in EMEA) holistic environmental standards that sets minimum goals across a range of areas that impact the environment – energy, water, paper, etc. Must meet a minimum requirement to be certified. Best Workplace for Commuters Awards Winner Conservation and recycling programs ranging from water, paper, toner, industrial waste, batteries, organic waste (where supported by local community) ( About communicating our goals : Our approach to date has been to focus on setting internal goals and targets, and then to communicate our programs and share what we learn)
  • You can to the links listed here to find out more information on how Oracle Solutions enable organizations to be greener as well as details on what Oracle is doing itself as a company to reduce its impact on the environment. At Oracle’s OpenWorld event in a few weeks we will have a dedicated “Green Room” in the Yerba Buena auditorium next to the Moscone convention center. This program will feature some great speakers including thought-leaders, customers, partners, and Oracle executives. Our goal is to provide a forum for the IT world and the sustainability world to come together to collectively address the challenge that lies ahead of us. Also feel free to contact me at rich.kroes@oracle.com with any questions. This is going to have to be a very collaborative effort to address this challenge that we face so I look forward to working with many of you as we move forward on this journey. Thank you for joining us for this iSeminar on Empowering the Green Enterprise.
