Extreme Recognized for Reduction in Energy Usage, Recycling Tons of E-Waste


Extreme Networks™, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leader in cloud networking, today announced that it has been recognized for its sustainability efforts and reduced its energy usage by 19% in fiscal year 2023 by consolidating its facilities and data centers, including beginning work to consolidate two lab locations into a single location in Salem, N.H.

Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, recognized Extreme's efforts as part of "The Zero Carbon Project" (TZCP), naming Extreme as a "Most Emerging TZCP Supplier." Additionally, Extreme's IT equipment recycling practices were recognized with a "Sustainability Excellence Award 2023" from Evergreen IT Solutions, a vendor in the industry of e-waste recycling.

Extreme has set carbon reduction goals in accordance with the Science Based Target Initiative to reduce its carbon footprint by 50% by 2030. In fiscal year 2023, Extreme also reduced its natural gas consumption by 6% based on facilities and data center/lab consolidation. The new consolidated lab will be managed entirely by the ExtremeCloud™ IQ platform, enabling Extreme to simplify network management within its own environments.

Extreme published its 2023 Corporate Responsibility Report on October 30, 2023. Notable accomplishments include:

  • Extreme properly recycled 23,182 pounds, or over 11 tons, of e-waste in calendar year 2022.
  • Over the past two fiscal years, Extreme has reduced its real estate footprint by over 50%.
  • In fiscal year 2023, xtreme announced the AP3000 which has just 13.9W of power draw, making it the lowest power consumption Wi-Fi 6E access point in the market.



Extreme also recently received its official ISO 14064-1:2018 certification from SGS for its CY2021 corporate carbon inventory. This certification verifies all disclosed carbon emissions during 2021 and is another affirmation of Extreme's commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.
