As a global company, NetApp is committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship. We firmly believe that we can meet today’s needs, deliver shareholder value, and constructively impact the communities where we work and live without sacrificing the needs of tomorrow. Our focus on this triple bottom line – people, planet, and profit – generates positive outcomes for our stakeholders, the environment, and the economy.

Our Global Corporate Citizenship program encourages and empowers corporate philanthropy, volunteerism, charitable contributions, education, and outreach as we strive to solve pressing social and economic issues. Being a Great Place to Work helps us attract employees who share our corporate values. In fact, for nine consecutive years FORTUNE has ranked NetApp as one of the top 100 Best Companies to Work For; in 2011, they ranked us #5 on the list. By being a responsible corporate citizen and a great place to work, we inspire our employees, customers, and communities to lead healthy and vibrant lives.

From an environmental perspective, NetApp creates data storage solutions widely recognized for enabling our customers to reduce power consumption and meet their green IT objectives. We bring that same environmental awareness home by practicing sustainable operations in-house through energy conservation, waste reduction, recycling, and other programs that allow us to meet or exceed international certification and compliance standards.

One look at our 2010 carbon disclosure below will show that we’re performing well and working hard to develop new strategies that will reduce our carbon footprint and lessen our environmental impact even further. This well-known and highly regarded commitment to sustainability, environmental conservation, and green IT has strengthened and defined our corporate leadership role within the IT industry.
