At Oracle, Sustainability Is Everyone’s Business
Good corporate citizenship means being intentional and thoughtful about the value we generate as a company—not only for our shareholders, but also for our people, our planet, and future generations. It means applying the same level of commitment, rigor, and sincerity to changing lives as we do to building cutting-edge technology for our customers. Sustainability is inherent in the way we think about and approach nearly every aspect of our business, from operational efficiency to product development to employee engagement. We collaborate with our many stakeholders—including our employees, customers, and partners—to identify and address the areas that are most material to Oracle and we are focused on measurable results.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business operations—from managing our use of natural resources to ensuring responsible supply chain practices and running sustainable events globally. We also operate an efficient, clean, and circular Oracle Cloud that enables our customers to not only drive business value but also lower their environmental impact. These efforts are well aligned with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals including Responsible Production and Consumption, Affordable and Clean Energy and Climate Action.
Oracle recognizes that sustainability is good business. That’s why we’re committed to developing practices and products that enable our customers around the world to put the planet first. These efforts are aligned with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals including Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Quality Education, Good Health and Well-Being, and Sustainable Cities and Communities. Successful organizations integrate sustainability into core business activities throughout their value chains and as such information technology is key to enabling more impactful, far-reaching, and cost-effective results. Information technology enables insights for intelligent decision-making that until recently were never thought possible at scale, let alone in a cost-effective manner. Oracle solutions help optimize resource management, value chain execution, risk management, reporting, and many other key areas for sustainable development. New technologies such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big data, and Blockchain are driving unprecedented environmental innovation by supporting holistic decision-making and groundbreaking research. Thriving startup communities are also leveraging these technologies and in many cases, are building entirely new business models such as the sharing economy.
Every day, Oracle employees are making a difference by building cutting-edge technologies to help our customers drive sustainability, finding eco-friendly ways to run the business, and supporting causes in their local communities. We are proud to leverage our greatest assets — our technology and our people — to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. We know that the overwhelming majority of Oracle employees is passionate about protecting the planet and supporting those that live on it. We are proud of the results we are achieving and inspired to do more. As we like to say “At Oracle, sustainability is everyone’s business”.
