Any individual that feels he/she has been the victim of retaliation should immediately notify the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer or any member of the Business Practices and Compliance Team or Worldwide Law Department.
Utilizing the Helpline/Webline will not insulate an individual from disciplinary action if he/she participated in wrongdoing.

In addition to larger programs such as CA Technologies Together in Action, the company also provides up to three work days a year for employees to volunteer and give back to the communities where they work and live.

Green Lease Policy
We are working with global real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle to implement a policy of 100% green leases going forward on all non-owned corporate facilities. Currently, we are incorporating sustainability elements into our RFPs, insisting on certain sustainable practices from all landlords. These include recycling programs, green cleaning of the office space and a commitment from landlords to build out our interior premises in compliance with CA Technologies green build guidelines. We expect to implement industry-accepted green leases when we reset major facilities.
The World Economic
CA Technologies holds a “strategic partnership” membership in the World Economic Forum
(WEF), the highest level of contractual membership. As such, our senior executives participate in the WEF annual
meeting in Davos. In addition, CA Technologies has participated in the regional meetings in India, Latin America,
the Middle East, Europe, Southeast Asia and China.
At the January 2011 meeting, Phil Harrington, EVP, Risk and Chief Administrative Officer,
was nominated to the Risk Officers Community of global decision-makers from top corporations, governments and global
risk regulating bodies, who work to better understand key risks and develop ways to respond to them proactively in
times of crisis. Mr. Harrington also led a forum on Preparing for a Global Talent Crisis, which included the Premier
of Quebec and the President of Panama, along with other industry leaders.
In addition, Mr. Harrington was recently nominated to the WEF Risk Officers Community, which
honors board or cabinet-level executives in the risk field. This community is made up of global decision-makers from
top corporations, governments and global risk-regulating bodies, who work to better understand key risks and develop
ways to respond to them proactively.
Because we believe that securing networks is critical in a world that depends on reliable,
private Internet connections for everything from personal communications to daily business operations, we recently
became a founding partner in the WEF’s Partnership for Cyber Resilience.
