Overview

Building on ethical and profitable business practices, our sustainability commitments focus on using technology-enabled solutions to bring positive influences to the community we work in and with. We take conscious actions to minimize environmental impacts while at the same time creating shared values with all stakeholders.

 

At Zyxel Communications, sustainability is more than a buzzword. It’s a daily practice and corporate initiative tied to concrete, measurable goals. With this philosophy, our promise in fighting climate change is more than a pledge. It’s a plan-based approach to reach net-zero emissions, adopt renewable energy, and sharpen R&D focused on green product development. I’m incredibly proud of all the efforts Zyxel has made and continues making toward becoming a greener planet, and we are committed to working closely with you to achieve a more sustainable future.

Karsten Gewecke,
President at Zyxel Communications

Zyxel Communications is always searching for ways to make a positive impact on people and our planet – it’s part of our 20-year sustainability initiatives. These efforts start at home with our most important asset, our employees and continue throughout our entire value chain. I believe we cannot achieve a sustainable business without investing in people – suppliers, employees, next-gen talent and the communities we serve. Invest in them, we can make an agile and resilient business when marching toward a connected and sustainable future.

Chief Operating Officer of Zyxel Communications
