An interconnected world means we have a responsibility to be as transparent as possible about the companyâ€™s environmental impact and do our part as a good global corporate citizen, too.
A big part of corporate citizenship is the public reporting of policies and performance related to the environment, which is why we once again participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP),Â the worldâ€™s largest database of corporate climate change information.
The CDP ranks companies and other public organizations on environmental stewardship by taking into account a number of factors, including disclosure and overall carbon footprint, to determine scores. Broadcom has continued to improve its score since becoming involved with the CDP in 2009. Weâ€™re proud to report a disclosure score of 82 â€” a 70-percent improvement since the company began participating â€” and to share our 2012 Carbon Disclosure Project report.
Other highlights from the report include our commitment to grow the company in a responsible way, information on our sustainability steering group, energy efficient projects, and global energy use.

And while we’re proud of our accomplishments, we also recognize we can do a lot more. If you ask Broadcom President and CEO Scott McGregor, heâ€™ll tell you that the first step is awareness.
â€śProducing the results is something that all of us as employees of Broadcom share,â€ť McGregor said. “By raising awareness of sustainability with employees, we can help every employee learn ways they can contribute to make Broadcom a more socially responsible company every day.â€ť
Participation in the Carbon Disclosure Project is just one of the many social responsibility initiatives that make our employees proud to work at Broadcom.
