Paul Marcoux - Cisco - Cisco's Green Story

  1. 1. Cisco’s Green Story Connected Urban Development Paul A. Marcoux Vice President Green Engineering Service Provider Group (SPG) Cisco Sustainability Science Center Feb. 20 /21, 2008 © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 1
  2. 2. Cisco’s Green Mission Operations Impacting how we operate as a business Products Creating efficiencies and innovations in our products Architecture Providing solutions to our customers to address global environmental issues Employees Inspiring our employees to get involved and take action © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  3. 3. Green Networks Helping our customers to meet their green goals by making every connection a green connection. Asia 437 Europe 322 North America 233 Latin America 110 Africa 34 Middle East 20 Australia/Oceania 19 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 Millions of Users “If it can be connected to the Internet, it can be green.” © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  4. 4. Where does the Power Go? Network has a small footprint and can reduce overall power requirements Conversion Lighting Loss 3% 10% ICT Infra 37% Cooling 50% 50 40 Each watt consumed by IT infrastructure 30 carries a “burden factor” of 1.2 to 2.5 for 20 power consumption associated with cooling, 10 50% 35% 15% conversion/distribution and lighting 0 Server Storage Network Sources: EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Cisco IT, Network World, Customer Interviews, APC © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  5. 5. Connected Urban Development Cisco has launched an initiative that embeds advanced information communication technology in urban infrastructure and management systems in order to reduce global warming. FACTS Cities consume 75% of the world’s energy and are responsible for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions. Piloting in three cities: San Francisco, Seoul, Amsterdam. Total investment in this initiative estimated at $15 million. The Amsterdam initiative is expected to save 76K tons of CO2 over five years. Cisco’s product development organization will determine how to use technology innovation to manage traffic patterns and create an urban communications infrastructure that increases the efficiency of traffic flows. © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  6. 6. Cisco Connected Real Estate The Cisco Connected Real Estate program integrates the control and management of disparate building systems over a single IP network. FACTS Converged network approach generated capital savings of 24%. Reduced operating expenses by 30%. 40% reduction in electrical demand. © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 6
  7. 7. Managing Operational Waste Cisco strives to manage, reduce, or eliminate operational waste — which includes office, landscaping and cafeteria wastes. FACTS In San Jose, 74% of the total waste stream is now diverted from the landfill. In our Brussels office, installation of new recycling bins and an employee education program boosted the recycling rate from 40 to 80 percent. At our San Jose headquarters, we are testing a program to sort 100 percent of our office waste to make sure no recyclable materials end up in the landfill. © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc.

  8. 8. Reducing Water Use Cisco installed waterless urinals in restrooms at our San Jose headquarters and installed 60 taps with sensors in our Brussels office. FACTS With the waterless urinal projects, we estimate that water consumption will go down by more than 8.5 million gallons per year once installation is complete in 2008. At our San Jose headquarters, Cisco uses only recycled water for landscape irrigation and fountains, which represents approximately 45% of our total 700,000 cubic feet of water consumption. In California alone, we are saving more than 81 million gallons of water each year due to our water conservation efforts. © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 8
  9. 9. Product Energy Efficiency Cisco has incorporated power-reduction features into many of our consumer products. FACTS The hard drive in the Scientific Atlanta set-top box digital video records automatically goes into sleep mode between the hours of 1:00 am and 6:00 am. Cisco Unified Communications Manager V4 allows the displays on all the IP phones connected to a network go dark at a given time after business hours. This results in a savings up to 25% of a phone’s energy consumption All Cisco power adapters meet the ENERGY STAR requirements (California). © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. 9
