Logitech has recently been named to Fast Company’s annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies (MIC) for 2021. This marks the third time that Logitech has appeared on this prestigious list in the past four years, this year ranking #4 in its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Category.
“We applaud Fast Company’s recognition of businesses that are innovating ways to create positive environmental and social impacts across the globe,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “Our commitments to innovation in sustainability have garnered a positive reception from stakeholder groups and we are focused on the long-term commitment to creating positive change in the world.”
The 2021 list honors businesses in the CSR Category with corporate initiatives that positively and meaningfully contribute to a company’s stakeholder community. As a company dedicated to designing new possibilities that extend human capability, Logitech is proud to showcase our innovative Design for Sustainability efforts demonstrating that design can affect change within a company, an industry, and the broader culture.
Sustainability is immersed into the core of our design process. What started as a cultural driver and differentiator in the industry is evolving into a model for corporate sustainability. We are now able to inform every design decision made with an understanding of its environmental and social impact. Not only are technical decisions embedded within the design process, by choosing lower impact materials, using renewable energy in the manufacturing process, redesigning low impact packaging solutions, and minimizing the use of target substances, Logitech is able to reduce carbon, toxicity, and circularity impacts.
As recognized by Fast Company, Logitech’s commitment to sharing and communicating the carbon impact of all our products is an innovative, industry first. We believe carbon is the new calorie and being transparent on packaging about our impact on the environment is not only the right thing to do but helps our customers make more informed decisions. Integral to our responsibility as a consumer goods company, we hope this bold step encourages other companies to do the same.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its more highly anticipated efforts of the year. This year’s MIC list features 463 companies from 29 countries and provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. Logitech is honored to be a recipient and ranked #4 on the list in the CSR Category in 2021. Congratulations to all of the companies receiving recognition who are exhibiting ingenuity and creativity while transforming industries to shape the future.
