This Sunday, Apr. 22, marks the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day -- a global event celebrated around the world. It's a time to reflect on our personal and professional relationship with mother earth as well as reflect on successes in the green/sustainable dimension and identify opportunities to become a more sustainability company into the future.
In this highly competitive and challenging business environment, Avaya believes strongly that being lean and efficient is absolutely essential. With many ICT products, we see value in delivering energy efficient solutions that save resources, reduce waste and transform organizations. This value is extremely likely to become more important as resources become ever scarcer, with increased volatility in terms of availability and price.

As a large global employer and a provider of enterprise-class collaboration solutions, we are well positioned to have a positive impact on both sustainability and energy reduction. Along with our broad base of customers, we have witnessed the increasing importance of corporate sustainability along economic, environmental and social dimensions. These topics are of utmost importance to many of you and we at Avaya ensure that our own stakeholders understand and participate in our sustainability journey.
