Environmental, Social, and Governance
Sitecore is committed to operating our business in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. As a global firm, we have a responsibility to be good citizens of the world by reducing our footprint and creating positive changes in the markets in which we operate.
To deepen our commitment, we are expanding our existing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives to a comprehensive Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) program. Sitecore’s ESG Program will include measurable goals, policies, and a comprehensive action plan, and will focus on key areas of ESG including resource reduction, stakeholder engagement, health and well-being, carbon reduction, DEI, procurement, customer/client privacy and security, and green building certifications.
Sitecore's 2022 ESG Goals
In 2022, Sitecore has set some ambitious goals to demonstrate our commitment to being a good corporate citizen.
Carbon offset for data center usage and travel
Trees planted in 2022
Management requisitions filled by women
Internships held by women or minorities
Sitecore has offset over 100% of all carbon impact from travel by sponsoring several verified offset projects through Cool Effect including projects in Indonesia, Kenya, Uganda, and the United States. In addition to climate change mitigation, many of these projects support local communities, biodiversity, sustainable agriculture/forestry, and public health.
Sitecore has invested into Plan International’s flagship ‘We are the Girls Campaign’, who partner with girls, children and their communities around the world to overcome oppression and gender inequality, providing the support and resources that are unique to their needs, ensuring they achieve their full potential with dignity, opportunity and safety.
Sitecore has sponsored UN Women who focuses on priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality, and that can unlock progress across the board.
Sitecore planted 10,000 trees through The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion project. Trees filter clean air, provide fresh drinking water, help curb climate change, and create homes for thousands of species of plants and animals.
Sitecore has partnered with Stok, a sustainability and ESG consulting firm to provide expertise in ESG program development, implementation, and management.
Sitecore conducts an annual materiality assessment to continuously evaluate the impact and importance of key ESG topics. These results as well as our consumption baselines inform our program KPIs.
