A message from Bill Coleman
In addition to enabling organisations to harness the power of their information, Veritas is equally committed to ethical and responsible global corporate citizenship, engaging in sound environmental practices, investing in positive social impact around the globe, and promoting a talented, diverse and inclusive workforce.
Our commitment to corporate citizenship, environmental responsibility, and diversity and inclusion defines who we are. Making a positive impact in the lives of people around the world is as important as our business success, and corporate and social responsibility remains fundamental to our business.
I am honoured to play a role in Veritas' Corporate Responsibility program and am inspired by the passion of our employees who are just as devoted to the work they do for Veritas as they are to the work they do in their communities. As an example of this, I'd like to share some feedback I received from the Veritas leadership team about how important corporate citizenship is to them:
"For Veritas Services and Support, our people are what make the difference in the quality of support we provide our customers. We strive for diversity and inclusion within our global organisation so we can cultivate not just good corporate citizenship, but a stronger, more successful team that is better able to serve our customers."
- Rick Valentine, SVP, Veritas Services and Support

Veritas creates a positive social impact on communities around the globe. Corporate citizenship is not just the way we do business – it's our culture.
At Veritas, corporate citizenship includes philanthropy, employee activism and engagement, and a commitment to human rights, education and driving social change.
We believe our culture is defined through action. Our support of the Special Olympics is just one example of our passion for driving social change by empowering people with intellectual disabilities.
Diversity & Inclusion
We strive to attract, develop, promote, retain and fully engage diverse and talented individuals to enhance our innovation and put us at the forefront of our industry. We do this by creating a workforce that embraces every culture, language, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability and background, giving each individual a voice.
Our Employee Resource Groups provide a forum for women and minorities to achieve their full potential and empower them to succeed.
At Veritas, we believe that doing the right thing for the environment drives our growth. We believe in human rights, sustainable business practices and responsible sourcing. We promote corporate sustainability not only within our own operations, but also throughout our partner and supply chain.

Veritas commits to progressively align its own operations with the provisions of the EICC Code of Conduct and to support and encourage its own supply chain first-tier suppliers to do the same.
Wherever possible, Veritas will seek to adopt the EICC approach and tools in practical ways in the spirit of the industry's common goals.
We look forward to working as part of the EICC Program and to joining other members who have made this commitment to good corporate citizenship.
