A Message from CEO Joe Tucci
Information technology is being completely redefined by four powerful trends: mobile devices, cloud computing, big data and social networking. At the same time, the world is grappling with the need to provide clean water, education, and healthcare to a growing population; the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere is affecting virtually every ecosystem and every sector of business and society; and the expectations of governments and private industry are changing profoundly. The pace of these transformations is accelerating, which means the future will be both incredibly disruptive and extremely rich in opportunity.
Just as EMC redefines how organizations store, protect, analyze, share and secure information, we must also redefine how we create value for our society and our planet. In these pages, you will read about EMC’s commitment to become a more sustainable business, our company’s challenges and successes, and the progress of our organization toward our goals. Ultimately, you define our success in this arena.
We have included several stories of determined EMC employees in the sidebars of this report. I encourage you to take a few minutes to read, watch, or listen to these stories to see the spirit that is propelling EMC’s sustainability journey.
We have a tremendous opportunity to change the IT industry and contribute to a more sustainable world. With the commitment of the entire global EMC family, I know we will succeed.
Chairman and CEO
