ECI, a global provider of ELASTIC Network™ solutions for service providers, utilities and data center operators, has released its 4th Sustainability Report. Titled Reinventing the Future, the report focuses on the steps ECI is incorporating in daily operations to promote its innovative, responsible and ethical approach to conducting business. In addition, it reviews how ECI actively conserves resources, invests in its employees and upholds a strict 'Code of Ethics'. The report was written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 sustainability reporting guidelines.
ECI CEO Darryl Edwards said, "Over the years ECI has intensified its research and development of applied technologies that will help the company and its customers grow, and together, create a more connected and sustainable society. Our sights remain squarely on the future with the goal of continuing to lead a comprehensive effort that will have a positive impact globally, on all levels: social, economic and environmental."
Integral to ECI's approach is its ELASTIC Network™ strategy whereby ECI networks support legacy equipment while incorporating features and capabilities which address the needs of tomorrow, such as: flexibility, agility, interoperability and more. As telecom customers are continuously under the gun to 'do more with less' this strategy ensures customer investments for the long run.
The report describes how the importance of consistently excelling in customer service and accountability has spurred ECI to take some operative steps in incorporating the 'voice of the customer' in yearly work plans and activities. It reviews progress to date, the current state of affairs and ECI's plans to continuously innovate while remaining committed to conserving energy and protecting the planet. It also cites achievements that serve as the cornerstones of ECI's sustainability strategy.

- Energy consumptions by 54%
- Greenhouse gas emissions by 49%
- Water use by 15%, and
