Sustainability in the cloud
At Workday, we measure our success not only in financial terms, but also by how we operate in the community and environment. We are committed to reducing – and whenever possible, eliminating – any negative environmental impact while benefiting the communities in which we live and work.
Our sustainability efforts focus on the environmental, social, and economic issues that help create and sustain long-term success for all. To enjoy a healthy economy that fosters human potential, we need to sustain a healthy planet as a foundation for our economy.
The Workday Foundation was established with a Workday stock grant in 2013 to make a difference in our communities and support Workday employees in their charitable investments of time and money. Our mission is to transform lives by creating career pathways that unleash human potential.
Since innovation is a cornerstone of Workday’s heritage and core values, it is a natural course that our Foundation also focuses on innovation. We look for organisations that are using innovative solutions to break the cycle of poverty by creating lasting economic security through meaningful employment. We are especially interested in partnering with organisations located near Workday offices globally, with opportunities for deep employee engagement.
Our approach to environmental stewardship focuses on the impacts that are most material to our business as a cloud software company. These include our carbon footprint, investments in renewable energy, reducing and responsibly disposing of our e-waste, and engaging with our employees to maximise their collective impact on how we operate.
