Ratings

Infinera monitors ESG ratings from a variety of sources to evaluate our performance and look for improvement opportunities.

ESG Materiality Assessment

In 2022, Infinera’s ESG Work Group worked with a consultant to perform an ESG Materiality Assessment. Interviews were held with members of management, customers, investors, suppliers, and key employees to determine the material topics most important to our customers and other stakeholders. 25 topics were reviewed and from those, six were selected as the top material topics to Infinera’s ESG Program and Strategy.  Those six, as seen below, became the basis for our 2023–2025 ESG Roadmap.

Our top six material topics and goals, listed below, also support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
