We are proud to share our 2018 Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report, which highlights the progress we’ve made in delivering on CR commitments to our people, your information, and the world. In this, our 11th CR report, we share both the progress we’ve made and the areas where we need to improve, as both are a part of our CR journey.
Our 2018 report also describeshow we are contributing to specific UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs represent a unique opportunity to align our core business capabilities with society’s pressing needs and we provide progress updates on efforts towards Goal 4 (quality education), Goal 5 (gender equality), Goal 8 (decent work and economic growth), Goal 10 (reduced inequalities), and Goal 13 (climate action).
Here are a few highlights from this year’s report:
Climate Impacts: In 2016,Symantec set a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by 30 percent by 2025. We reached our goal seven years early, reducing GHG emissions by 32 percent in just three years, primarily through space consolidation projects that lead to an overall reduced footprint and decreased energy use. We’ve also set a new, more comprehensive GHG reduction goal, and we launched a company-wide, global campaign to inspire employees to become environmental stewards: Going Green in 2018.
