VCG Technology Services Achieves Cisco Sustainability Accreditation

An endorsement of our dedication to a fit-for-purpose technology investment journey and a Sustainable Future in Tech.

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Cisco Sustainability Accreditation. This certification comes as a testament to our continued commitment to supporting and creating sustainable business practices, and our dedication to leading the charge in a greener future for the tech industry.

The accreditation will help us offer our customers incentives to fulfil their circular economy goals with fit-for-purpose investment choices towards:

  • Smart buildings
  • Hardware efficiency
  • Circular economy

Businesses working with VCG can access the Takeback incentive program, which allows them to purchase re-manufactured, recycled, or safely disposed of hardware.

By securing this accreditation, VCG Technology Services joins an elite group of organisations that have met Cisco’s high standards for sustainability.

“Cisco’s sustainability accreditation is not just an accreditation for VCG; it’s a reflection of our core principles” said Eliza Iatesen, Head of Marketing at VCG. “In today’s digital age, where technological growth can sometimes overlook the impact on society and the environment, we’re taking a stand to ensure that sustainability remains at the forefront of our operations, and our customers’ tech investments.

This also means ensuring that we are continuously consolidating our portfolio and vendor partnerships to help us drive the sustainability story. Our team has worked tirelessly to align with Cisco’s high standards, and today we celebrate this achievement together.”

“As more organisations move from on-premise to the Cloud, there are more and more opportunities to look at how technology can help offset carbon emissions”  says Steve Bishop, Technical Programme Manager at VCG. “This accreditation demonstrates continued commitment to help evolve sustainability goals for our partners, customers, colleagues, and future generations and it also cements the goals we have set to move closer to a net zero operation”.

Key highlights from our sustainability journey include:

  • Community: Supporting STEM initiatives that focus on underrepresented communities
  • Environment: Reducing our carbon footprint
  • Economy: Investing in our local supply chains including small businesses.
