Oracle Sustainability Awards

Winners of the 2019 Oracle Sustainability Awards at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.

The Oracle Sustainability Awards are presented to select customers who use Oracle technology to drive environmental initiatives as part of their business strategy. The awards have been an integral part of sustainability efforts at Oracle since 2008.

Whether your goal is to save energy, reduce emissions, minimize waste, or achieve another environment-focused objective, if you’re using an Oracle product to support your sustainability mission while reducing costs, we want to hear about it. For example, you might use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to reduce power consumption and space requirements by increasing utilization rates. Or you might use Oracle Cloud Applications to minimize environmental impacts, such as energy consumption and waste, during design, sourcing, planning, production, and distribution. If this sounds like you, your organization may be eligible to win an Oracle Sustainability Award.
