Avaya’s Sustainability Score Increases to 83/100

Avaya received a score of 83 out of a possible 100 points from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a global sustainability initiative important to Avaya customers such as AT&T, BT and Swisscom. The average score of the 3,400 companies that responded to the CDP survey was 53 points. Scores were based off disclosure and carbon reductions.

Avaya’s high CDP score is just another win in a slew of sustainability achievements for the company.

Since 2011, Avaya’s CDP score has steadily increased while its carbon footprint has continued to decrease. Earlier this year, Avaya announced a 25 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from its 2010 baseline, exceeding its original goal to reduce emissions 15 percent by 2015 two years ahead of schedule.

The company’s carbon footprint reductions can be attributed to real estate consolidation, greater utilization of office space and the adoption of Scopia® technology, which has led to a 46 percent reduction in business travel emissions since 2011.

Looking ahead, Avaya plans to reduce emissions even further by focusing on the supply chain and shipping products via ground and ocean rather than air.

“Avaya employees should be proud of its latest CDP score,” said Sara Broadbent, director, corporate responsibility. “Our customers care about the impact our business and products have on the environment, and our CDP score is a testimony to our commitment and how our technology is part of the climate change solution.”
