Plano, TX Ribbon Communications Inc.

“Sustainability is key part of our mission, and our environmental, social and governance goals are fully integrated into our business strategy,” said Patrick Macken, Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer, Ribbon. “This recognition is a testament to the team’s unwavering focus and dedication as we continue to work towards our targets, including that of reducing our direct carbon emissions 30% by 2030 from a base year of 2018.”

The 400 climate leaders were selected from a list of 2,000 US-based companies with more than $50 million in revenue. The year over year reduction in emissions intensity (compound annual reduction rate, or CARR) was calculated for every company meeting the inclusion criteria, and those with the highest CARR were included in the “America’s Climate Leaders” list.
