A message from Bill Coleman

Bill Coleman

We are defined by our commitment to corporate citizenship, environmental sustainability, diversity and inclusion. Making a positive impact in the lives of people around the world is as important as our business success, and corporate responsibility remains fully embedded into our business.

We are signatories of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest sustainability initiative, and we are committed to tackling climate change by reducing our environmental impact globally. We signed the Women's Empowerment Principles, a partnership initiative of UN Women and UN Global Compact (UNGC). We are also supporters of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of 17 goals adopted by the United Nations in September 2015, as part of its agenda to transform the world by 2030.

I am honoured to play a role in Veritas' Corporate Responsibility programme 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 responsibility is to them:

 

"Our overall vision is to become a leading global corporate citizen and position Veritas for long-term growth and success through our environmental sustainability leadership, diverse and engaged workforce, and with the positive impact we create in the communities where we operate. We believe we do well as a company by doing good, and we are passionately striving to make a positive social impact around the world.  I'm very proud to be leading Veritas' Corporate Responsibility efforts."  

-   Melynnie Rizvi, Senior Director, Corporate Responsibility

"As a business we operate to deliver, with the highest integrity, long-term value and commitment to the global communities in which we live and work."  

-   Mick Lopez, Veritas EVP and CFO

"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

We welcome your feedback on our progress and on the challenges we face in the area of corporate responsibility. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to find out more about the programmes we support, or send us information about a cause that’s important to you.

Sincerely,

Bill Coleman

CEO, Veritas
