Ciena’s Goals Approved by SBTi

Ciena’s near-term, science-based GHG reduction targets were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

A networking systems, services, and software company, Ciena committed to an absolute goal to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 80.6% by fiscal 2030 from fiscal 2019 levels and an intensity-based goal to reduce total Scope 3 GHG emissions per unit of capacity shipped in Gb/s by 71.3% by fiscal 2030 from fiscal 2019 levels.

Ciena’s new GHG reduction targets build upon the company’s previous goal to be carbon neutral for Scope 1, Scope 2 and certain Scope 3 emissions by 2024, which it is on track to achieve. The company also remains committed to its goals to use 100% renewable energy in key facilities by the end of 2023 and use packaging with 70% recycled content by weight by 2025.

“Pursuing innovative solutions that can positively impact our planet is an authentic extension of our desire to do good for our people, customers, and communities. Our new science-based targets mark the next evolution of Ciena’s sustainability journey, addressing our operations and supply chain, as well as our products and services. By reducing energy, space, waste, and materials in our products, we can reduce the environmental impact of communications networks across the globe and help our customers achieve their climate ambitions,” said Gary Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ciena, in a statement.
