“This award underscores our commitment to furthering our sustainability practices, including our pledge to reduce direct carbon emissions by 30% by 2030. We, and our industry as a whole, can make a real difference in the battle against climate change. Our customers expect it, and we demand it from ourselves,” said Patrick Macken, Ribbon’s Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer. “I want to thank the internal teams who have been relentless in driving these improvements forward – their efforts are being justly recognized.”
The annual awards leverage the TIA’s Sustainability Assessor Tool and recognize companies for their outstanding performance and innovation in sustainability practices.
