Our cloud transformation led to a sustainability model that’s good for business and the environment. We improved efficiency, eliminated waste, and recovered value, all while reducing emissions and environmental impact. Let us put the sustainability learnings and practices we developed during our transformation to work for you.
Our move to the cloud has enabled us to reimagine every facet of our business—including sustainability. Utilizing our own cloud technology, we have progressed our environmental performance efforts and further demonstrated our long-standing view that in order to be effective, we need to embed sustainable thinking into our organization and technology. At Oracle, sustainability is everyone’s business.
Our sustainability efforts benefit from Oracle’s unique end-to-end cloud platform and the seamless, cross-functional process flows it enables. As companies look to sustainability as a means of managing risk, avoiding costs, building brand stewardship generating revenue, we present a model of how operational efficiency—from product development to employee engagement—can help them transform sustainability.
I am extremely pleased with Oracle Cloud, as it allows me to capture our suppliers’ sustainability data and work directly with my category managers to help improve their suppliers’ sustainability programs.
Zach Ledford Program Manager, Sustainable Procurement, Oracle Corporation
Our transformation framework consists of four pillars—each driving sustainability as well as operational excellence.
Our solutions helped us streamlined business processes and become more sustainable. With Oracle Cloud Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) we design more environmentally friendly products and ensure compliance. Oracle Cloud Logistics optimizes product distribution and freight utilization to help us cuts transportation emissions both to customers and our own data centers. We drastically reduced paper consumption through Oracle Cloud ERP’s photo expense reporting, Oracle Cloud Procurement’s shared documents, and Oracle Cloud HCM’s online employee documents.
Oracle cloud technology helps us collect, manage, and report on our environmental data—in ways that are comprehensive, auditable, and timely. This has empowered our organization to monitor and improve our performance on an ongoing basis. Our technology has allowed us to set aggressive new goals for 2025, including a 55% reduction in emissions per unit of energy consumed, and 26% reduction in absolute emissions, in line with science-based targets.
Our dramatic shift to the cloud is in part based on creating a more circular economy. Using Oracle applications, we have improved asset and resource recovery. Through process planning, we are able to reuse, resell, and harvest spare parts, extending the useful life of existing equipment, and delivering business value for Oracle. In FY19, 99.4% of the decommissioned equipment collected at Oracle was either reused or recycled.
We are improving our day-to-day operations through the unprecedented levels of information that emerging provide. Oracle solutions centers and our own real estate and facilities are using IoT cloud technology to optimize energy use and minimize emissions. With Oracle Risk Management we have automated our continuity management program, enhancing decision making and action planning for global incidents and climate-related disasters.
We have been able to achieve a significant return on investment with Oracle Cloud including:
