Nowcomm Achieves Cisco Partner Environmental Sustainability Specialization
Nowcomm pledge to help customers migrate to more sustainable options and responsible disposal of old gear.
Derby, Derbyshire, March 7th, 2022 – Nowcomm announced today that it has achieved the Environmental Sustainability Specialization through the Cisco Partner Program.
The distinction indicates that the company has successfully completed exams and courses created to help partners operationalize environmental sustainability practices.
The specialization entitles Nowcomm to participate in the Takeback Incentive. This incentive is designed to reward Partners who pledge to work together with Cisco toward a sustainable future and commit to returning customers’ used hardware so it can be responsibly reused and recycled.
As part of the Environmental Sustainability Specialization, Nowcomm has signed Cisco’s Sustainability Pledge that supports a commitment made by Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins to have 100 per cent product return on end-of-use hardware. This pledge also supports Cisco’s goals to:
• Be net zero across global Scope 1,2 and 3 emissions by 2040
• Ensure 100 per cent of its products and packaging incorporate Circular Design Principles by FY2025
“The specialization supports our sustainability leadership and our efforts to differentiate in the marketplace to open up additional sales opportunities among environmentally conscious customers.” says James Baly, founder and front office director, Nowcomm.
For over seventeen years, Nowcomm has developed deep technical expertise across the entire Cisco portfolio, including Cloud Customer Experience, Cyber Security, Data Center, Enterprise Networking, Contact Centre, and Unified Communications. The company has earned distinction as a Cisco Gold Provider, Master Collaborator and recently became one of only two partners in the UK to hold Master Security status.
