Energy Use Reduction
We are dedicated to researching and implementing energy efficient measures in our offices to reduce our consumption and carbon footprint.
We continue to make progress for a greener organization in the areas of energy use, water consumption and solid-waste minimization. We endeavor to improve our facilities through applying the principles of the ISO 14001 standard as well as adhering to the RBA Code of Conduct.
Water Consumption Reduction
We partnered with Siemens Water Technologies to reduce our water consumption at our Santa Rosa site to treat and recycle water, saving approximately 4 million gallons of water per year.
Carbon Disclosure Project
You can learn more about the CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) and VIAVI responses and scores on the CDP Climate Change and Water Questionnaires at the link provided below.
Scope 2 emissions increased year over year because of increased operations and manufacturing year over year. As described below, VIAVI has planned facility improvements, which we believe will reduce our overall electricity usage in future years. When business travel resumes, we expect our emissions to increase, but we currently expect to meet our 2025 reduction target.
