Cisco launches dedicated channel with green.tv

green_tv_logoCisco has created its own channel on the green.tv platform. The channel launches with a series of films focused on Cisco’s Connected Urban Development initiative, which looks at how to reduce carbon emissions through improvements in the efficiency of the urban infrastructure made possible by information and communications technology (ICT) such as Cisco(R) TelePresence.

Future programs will focus on creating sustainable cities, virtual collaboration, mobility solutions and smart energy solutions. green.tv has partnerships with some of the world’s leading environmental organisations, including the United Nations Environment Programme and Greenpeace.

Neil Harris, Business and Sustainability Development manager at Cisco Europe said: “Cisco is committed to a high level of environmental responsibility in its business operations, culture, products and architectural design. Cisco also is in a unique position to use its technology to help arrest, and potentially reverse, the climate trend. Through the intersection of the physical network and the human network, we can empower people to live, work, learn and play in a more environmentally sustainable way.”
