Today I want to pay tribute to some of the Tellabs team who are instrumental in helping our customers succeed across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
At Tellabs, we pride ourselves in staying true to our company values — be our customers' trusted partner, relentlessly innovate for success, be accountable, act with respect and integrity and grow profits and shareholder value.
We would like to pay tribute to three of our team members that continually go above and beyond in making these values a reality.
The Tellabs Foundation made its grantmaking debut in 1997 with two gifts totaling $40,000. Sixteen years later, this private foundation (a separate entity from Tellabs) has given more than $16 million back to the community.
Our mission has remained consistent over time. We’re focused on advancing strategic initiatives in health, the environment and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
Texting while driving is dangerous. 97% of teens know it's risky, but 43% admit they've done it, according to a recent survey by AT&T.
Teens and adults alike may feel compelled to check their phones when behind the wheel. But texting while driving is a terrible idea. Even texting at a stoplight can distract, putting drivers -- and everyone around them -- at risk.
2012 marks our fourth year of reporting global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the Carbon Disclosure Project. We have good news to share:
- We reduced our overall emissions by 20% since 2008.
- We achieved our target to reduce emissions 20% by employee, too.
