This Sustainability Report covers our progress in sustainability through the 2014 calendar year, with highlights from the beginning of 2015. This year, we are reporting in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines at the “Core” level. That means we have assessed our most material environmental, social and economic impacts and have aligned our reporting with them. This report also incorporates the Ten Principles of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact.
In keeping with our goal of best-practice sustainability reporting, this is our fourth consecutive report that includes external assurance of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
As part of our sustainability reporting, we expanded our materiality analysis to enhance our understanding of the most significant environmental, social and economic topics related to our business and our stakeholders. We first consulted stakeholders to determine which issues should be considered material to CA Technologies. We then considered which were the top material topics, based on the GRI G4 framework, and developed a matrix to visually represent the results of our total assessment.
Building upon these materiality analysis results from 2013, we plan to further engage with our stakeholders, as well as with the industry as a whole, to update our strategy around materiality and ensure that our focus remains aligned with the topics deemed most material. In addition to a growing emphasis on environmental topics, interviews with key internal stakeholders in 2014 revealed a strong emphasis on the sustainable future growth of CA Technologies as it proactively helps customers secure their IT environments and transition to the application economy.
