Our Approach

At Symantec, corporate responsibility and positive societal impact are core to our business strategy. Integrity is a cornerstone of our mission and values, and helps define our winning culture. We build relationships with nonprofit charitable organizations, public policy and education partners, as well as across our internal teams, and we work in collaboration to make a positive impact and difference in the world.

We believe that integrating corporate responsibility into every aspect of our business helps us achieve our mission to help companies, governments and individuals secure their most important data wherever it lives. Corporate responsibility is an extension of our company’s mission and we create and manage each of our initiatives and resources strategically to add value to the company and our customers.

This approach is observed across the entire company. It begins with clear expectations for ethical and responsible operation set by the highest levels of management, who receive regular progress briefings on the company’s programs, including quarterly updates on diversity, ethics, environmental performance and community investment.
