Lumen Technologies has unveiled its latest report on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives, spotlighting the company's commitment to social responsibility and environmental stewardship.

CEO Kate Johnson expressed Lumen's overarching mission as unleashing the world's digital potential for its people, customers, and the global community. Embarking on a transformative journey in 2022, Lumen solidified its position as a technology and customer experience leader. Looking forward, the company recognises the integral role of digital trust, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship in fulfilling its purpose.

Key impacts of Lumen's ESG initiatives include:

  • Innovation: Demonstrating a dedication to sustainability, 99% of electricity procured in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa is sourced from renewable channels. The company also monitors an impressive 200 billion NetFlow sessions daily, capturing data on the volume and types of traffic traversing its network devices.

  • Planet: Lumen not only achieved its 2025 science-based greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets well ahead of schedule but surpassed them. With a 25% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions and a 39% reduction in Scope 3 emissions through 2018–2022, the company exceeded its 18% and 10% goals, respectively. Furthermore, Lumen's commitment to environmental responsibility is evident in recycling 1,777 metric tonnes of electronic and communications equipment and reducing landfill waste by over 2,000 metric tonnes.

  • People: Lumen's employees made a significant impact by contributing over 18,000 volunteer hours. Through the Lumen Clarke M. Foundation's matching and volunteer rewards programme, they collectively donated $1.7 million to over 3,000 non-profits in their communities.

  • 2022 Recognitions: Lumen Technologies received accolades for championing digital inclusion and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion within its workforce. Recognitions included Forbes' acknowledgment as one of America's Best Employers for Diversity and World's Top Female-Friendly Companies.

Newsweek also named Lumen one of America's Most Responsible Companies, and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation awarded the company a perfect score of 100 on its Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for LGBTQ+ equality for the fourth consecutive year. Additionally, Lumen secured a place in JUST Capital and CNBC's 2022 Rankings of America's Most JUST Companies and was listed on U.S. News & World Report's exclusive roster of the 2024 Best Telecommunications Companies to Work For.
