It is widely understood that the future of the planet hangs delicately in the balance and that human activity is changing the climate. Cisco recognises this fact and that the time for change is now, requiring the entire Cisco community to get behind a committed response to leading this change. Cisco's Environmental and Sustainable Business Practices are at the heart of this change.

Recognising the need for an increased effort around the Green Issue, Cisco Networkers 2008 is committed to becoming an environmentally conscious event that contributes to the combined effort we are all making towards preserving the future of our planet. The Cisco Networkers Green Agenda therefore involves a number of key initiatives that focus on:

* The Venue - Barcelona and the CCIB
* Sustainable Event Management
* Materials Management
* The Use of Technology to Drive Change
* Playing Your Part in Helping Cisco Networkers to go Green
