Citrix—part of the solution
From the very beginning, Citrix has created technology that allows you to get work done from anywhere on any device – while reducing energy consumption. Our solutions help people and businesses be more sustainable. We also set up our offices and facilities to reduce energy and waste, and our employees globally work to minimize their ecological footprint.
An unprecedented rise in remote work has resulted in dramatic improvements in the Air Quality Index. Without roadways packed with commuters, urban areas can see blue skies. Citrix is proud to play our part and help our customers enable remote work, no matter the situation.
Decreasing our carbon footprint
Citrix creates modern workplaces that are collaborative, engaging, and economical, while being environmentally sustainable. Investments in sustainable design features and green operations go into the development and expansion of all of our offices. We are firm believers in the triple bottom line – measuring our social, environmental, and financial success.

Eliminated the majority of bottled water from offices and using biodegradable, recyclable, and/or reusable products
