Sustainability Report

At CA Technologies, sustainability means being aware of our impact and finding ways to reduce it while growing our company. By integrating sustainability throughout our business, we have improved our reporting, enhanced our approach to estimating energy use, increased our transparency and invited external review to confirm that our processes are solid and our data are valid. And, by integrating sustainability into our products while improving productivity, we’re helping our customers achieve more with greater efficiency.

We continue to work to reduce our environmental footprint by gathering and acting on information, looking for opportunities to innovate, and forming strategic alliances to combine efforts. In many cases, these efforts also help reduce operating costs.

Sustainability at CA represents ongoing engagements with customers that impact ever-evolving initiatives within our company, not simply a report that’s issued annually.

About This Report


This Sustainability Report covers our progress in sustainability through the 2015 calendar year, with highlights from the beginning of 2016. 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 fifth consecutive report that includes external assurance of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Stakeholder Engagement


We engage with our stakeholders in many ways. Through the leadership and assistance of our Board of Directors and members of our Executive Management Team, CA Technologies continues its participation with the UN Global Compact (UNGC) and its engagement with Ceres and its policy arm, BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy). Both the UNGC and Ceres enable us to increase our interactions with a network of companies, investors, environmental organizations, public interest groups and governments that seek to address sustainability challenges. Our participation as a Ceres network company continues to deliver credibility, expertise and a depth of experience in driving sustainability leadership and best practices. Together with Ceres, we have identified key stakeholders of diverse viewpoints who provide valuable insights into our business. We hope and expect that they will continually challenge us to raise our level of performance.

Sustainability Materiality Assessment


In early 2016, we conducted a new materiality assessment to inform our sustainability strategy and develop the foundation of future sustainability reporting by identifying and prioritizing the sustainability topics that are the most important to CA Technologies and to our stakeholders.

As part of the materiality refresh, we evolved our methodology, while using the topics universe identified in 2013 as the starting point of the analysis. We also undertook a peer review assessment of key suppliers, customers and influencers within the industry. This approach allowed us to track the changing priorities of the issues.

Recently, the issues of talent have become more prominent, and are reflected in the rising importance of the following issues as material to our business and industry: attraction and retention; diversity and inclusion; and STEM education. The issues of cybersecurity and privacy have also become top-of-mind for all stakeholders since the previous assessment.

As part of the materiality assessment, we conducted interviews with key internal stakeholders from across CA to assess the relative importance of sustainability issues. The same participants completed a survey in which they ranked a subset of the topics universe based on their determination of each topic’s importance to the business. The interview process allowed participants to highlight topic areas that were not included in the shortlist in the survey. In addition to a growing emphasis on environmental topics, interviews with key internal stakeholders in 2015 revealed a strong emphasis on the sustainable future growth of CA Technologies as it proactively helps customers secure their IT environments and succeed in the application economy.

We continue to 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 most pressing issues.
