Environment

Cerium Networks Environmental Sustainability Mission Statement

Cerium Networks is dedicated to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices. Our commitment extends beyond words; it drives actionable steps to protect our planet and create positive change.

Reduction of Plastic
Cerium Networks is committed to reducing single use plastics. Filtered water stations have been installed in all Cerium offices reducing plastic waste. Cerium has provisioned our break areas with silverware for employee use that is washed, not disposed of. Efforts are ongoing to further reduce single use items and packaging within Cerium.

Recycling
Cerium Networks consolidated our warehouse facilities to a single warehouse located in Seattle. We have implemented effective recycling programs which include packaging sorted, paper documents shredded and all recycled according to local and state guidelines. Electronics are recycled by certified organizations specializing in E-Waste and with standards of 100% recycling with zero waste and zero landfills.

Reduction of Carbon Footprint
Cerium has taken significant steps to minimize its environmental impact. By transitioning in-office roles to hybrid positions, Cerium has achieved several key benefits. First, the reduction in office square footage has led to decreased power, electrical, water, and waste consumption. This move not only saves costs but also contributes to a greener workplace.

Moreover, Cerium’s commitment to remote work has been instrumental in reducing employee commutes. Approximately 25% of the company’s teams now work remotely, resulting in fewer cars on the road and decreased greenhouse gas emissions. Employees enjoy a better work-life balance, and the planet benefits from reduced carbon output.

In addition to these measures, Cerium has upgraded all its lighting—both interior and exterior—to energy-efficient LED technology. The parking lot, too, now boasts LED lights, further enhancing sustainability. By making this switch, Cerium has not only reduced its energy consumption but also extended the lifespan of its lighting fixtures.

Cerium is actively migrating on-premises applications and compute to cloud-based solutions wherever possible. This strategic move not only improves efficiency but also reduces power consumption and carbon emissions. The cloud allows for streamlined operations without the need for extensive physical infrastructure.

Social

Social Responsibility
Cerium Networks is an active and a financial support of charitable organizations within our communities such as Boys and Girls Club, Boy Scouts, Ronald McDonald House, Executive Women (EWI) and their support of literacy within the community.

Financial Viability
Cerium’s continual investment and focus developing a skilled workforce through professional development, leadership training, technical skills and our valued Apprentice program increases employee retention.
