International Earth Day and Sun's CSR


We at Sun always pay close attention to the mark we make -- whether it's innovations that change the industry or our footprint on the planet.

Since formalizing our Sustainability strategy three years ago, we've had many dramatic proof points of our open source philosophy, commitment to the environment, social responsibility and making technology accessible to everyone.
Corporate Responsibility at Sun
Some examples include publishing our annual CSR report, winning the EPA's Climate Protection Award, and opening the new eco friendly data center in Colorado, to name a few.

We are observing International Earth Day today, and I sat down with Marcy Scott Lynn, Director of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility at Sun Microsystems, to talk about environmental accountability for a sustainable earth. Listen to the short segment below for the highlights of Sun's CSR efforts.

According to the article, "Thanks to a massive datacenter consolidation, hardware refresh, and creative, energy-efficient facility design, Sun has reduced power capacity demand by 75 percent at its Santa Clara, Calif., datacenter alone, saving $1.1 million per year in energy costs, while increasing its datacenter processing power more than four times.  Overall, Sun estimates that its consolidation efforts will save 4,100 tons of CO2 per year and cut 1 percent from its total carbon footprint."
