Logicalis first Cisco global partner to achieve Sustainable Campus Access Add-on specialisation

Logicalis, a digital managed services provider, has become the first partner globally to achieve Cisco’s Sustainable Campus Access Add-On specialisation, reflecting the business’ commitment to sustainability. Having already secured the Cisco Environmental Sustainability Specialisation across 15 territories, Logicalis now adds another feather to its cap by supporting customers in reducing carbon emissions associated with their digital infrastructure. Logicalis achieves this by empowering its customers to adopt sustainable business practices while providing leading managed service solutions. These include: l  Power consumption monitoring and reporting: Logicalis helps clients keep a close eye on the power consumed by their devices l  Equipment refresh: Outdated equipment is replaced with more energy-efficient alternatives, contributing to overall power savings l  Responsible e-waste recycling: Logicalis provides responsible e-waste recycling options for its customers. Logicalis validated its sustainability competency within the context of campus access managed services by passing a rigorous Cisco audit. This involved demonstrating capabilities such as optimising hardware usage, minimising energy consumption, leveraging telemetry for efficient product tracking and reporting and ensuring

effective disposal of end-of-use equipment. Logicalis’ sustainability reporting capabilities include its Digital Fabric Platform (DFP). Launched in 2023, the DFP gives CIOs a real-time view of how their digital ecosystem performs across five metrics including sustainability, reliability, security, economics and user experience. The platform benchmarks customers against industry standards and provides recommendations for how to reduce power consumption and effectively refresh, recycle, and consolidate equipment. “We are thrilled to have achieved Cisco’s Sustainable Campus Access Add-On Specialisation, building on our established sustainable campus customer solutions,” said Toby Alcock, global CTO at Logicalis. “This achievement highlights Logicalis’ continuous efforts to push the sustainable agenda forward and our commitment to being an example for others in the tech industry. We look forward to continuing our work with Cisco to drive sustainability initiatives forward.” Denise Lee, vice president of Cisco's Engineering Sustainability Office, added: “Sustainability is core to the partnership between Logicalis and Cisco. This recognition of Logicalis' expanding capabilities in sustainability managed services highlights how they are adding purpose-driven business opportunities to their portfolio of solutions. We are thrilled to continue this partnership and for the impact yet to come.”
