A Message from CEO Joe Tucci
All this presents a massive opportunity for EMC. Our strategy is focused on delivering best-of-breed products and services that allow IT departments to move to a Cloud Computing model, analyze vast quantities of "Big Data" and do so in a secure, trusted and efficient way. At the same time, we are also focused on continuing our commitment toward a sustainable economy.
This is not about choosing between good business and good citizenship. Rather, this represents our determination to drive technological development, business process, and collaboration in new and creative ways. Long-term success for EMC will happen because we know that we can, and must, conduct business in a way that's good for our investors, our employees, our communities and the planet. Integrating financial, environmental, and social considerations in how we define our business strategy and make our daily decisions is integral to our success.
I'm extremely proud of the work that EMC employees around the world are doing every day – improving the sustainability and energy efficiency of our operations, products and packaging; finding creative approaches to reduce waste and lower our greenhouse gas emissions; collaborating with local communities to improve math and science education; and working with our suppliers and partners to build a value chain that increasingly protects the workforce, the planet and the business.
These transformations are exciting. And while I'm pleased with our track record of delivering innovative approaches to sustainability, we fully realize that there's plenty of work in front of us at EMC to shape our industry – and the planet – for the better.
