Our FY12 Citizenship Reporting
Since the release of our first product in 1975, we’ve demonstrated the promise of computing to change the world. But as we’ve grown as a company, so have the world’s social and environmental challenges. We’re responding by applying our technology, ingenuity, and collaborative spirit to help solve these critical challenges and create fulfilling and exciting opportunities for people everywhere.
We focus our commitment to corporate citizenship in two ways: serving communities around the world and working responsibly in our own business.
Introduction from the CEO
We’ve always believed that technology creates opportunities for people and organizations to realize their full potential. This belief inspires us to deliver new technology that unleashes creativity, productivity, and opportunity for more and more people around the world.
We’re active members of the communities everywhere we do business. We use our skills, technology, and other resources to serve the people in these communities—from supporting disaster relief efforts to connecting nonprofits with the tools they need to run efficiently.
