Cisco unveils first Environmental Sustainability Specialisation in North of England

Cisco has awarded its Environmental Sustainability Specialisation to Forfusion, based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Forfusion is the first Cisco supplier in the North of England to receive the accolade to date.

Created by Cisco earlier this year, this latest specialisation rewards partners for supporting Cisco’s sustainability pledge and participating in the organisation’s global initiative to responsibly repurpose or recycle end-of-use products.

Gavin Young, Cisco Partner Account Manager said, “team Forfusion has achieved the Cisco Environmental Sustainability Specialisation, demonstrating a commitment to drive positive environmental change, and creating an inclusive future.

“This is deserving recognition that Forfusion is not only dedicated to technological advancement such as SD-WAN connectivity, but it also has a strong moral and environmental compass too.”

The Environmental Sustainability Specialisation equips Cisco partners with the information needed to educate its customers on the benefits of migrating to cloud-enabled solutions while updating older technologies. It also highlights the impact Cisco users can have on the environment by participating in the circular economy. With the specialisation and Takeback Incentive, partners will be rewarded for helping customers migrate to the most up-to-date technologies and responsibly dispose of the used hardware enabling them to achieve their sustainability targets.           

Steven Forrest, CEO, Forfusion added, “we are incredibly proud and grateful to have been awarded the Cisco Environmental Sustainability Specialisation. This knowledge aligns with our company core values entirely and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team.

“We always strive to deliver, not just the best for our customers, but to achieve impeccable results with respectful regard for the environment and the communities around us.”

Forfusion delivers mission-critical and lifesaving services for large-scale organisations such as NHS Trusts and central government. Forfusion is committed to ensuring businesses have the most reliable, secure, and eco-friendly connection possible, to support their journey to the cloud. Forfusion’s services include switching customers from traditional MPLS networks to SD-WAN technology, to ensure robust site-to-site connectivity, and provide access to on-ramp services from AWS and Microsoft 365 via Express Route.
