Companies increasingly embed sustainability efforts in their businesses because it is the right thing to do, and because these changes create positive impacts on performance. Today, we see business leaders actively pursuing transparent and responsible practices that improve their company’s bottom line, and the world itself.

At CA Technologies, our motivation comes from the opportunity to help shape the future. We concentrate not only on what is essential to our business success, but also on what works for our people, our communities and our shared natural environment. CA’s position gives us the ability to influence core themes we believe must be addressed in order for our industry to thrive today and in the years to come. These imperatives are climate change; industry trust and security; and skills for the future workforce. We have also embedded the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in our sustainability strategy to help accelerate progress.

Climate. Research from the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) says the tech sector could help cut global greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent by 2030 by enabling companies and consumers to use and save energy more intelligently. According to the GeSI’s research, solutions enabled by information and communication technology (ICT) are predicted to generate $11.4 trillion in stakeholder benefits by 2030, thanks to new revenues and cost savings from greater efficiencies and decreased waste.

At CA Technologies, we work to maximize opportunities for our customers’ IT operations by providing an efficient platform that limits resource use, and products that strive for sustainability in all respects. We have the capability to reduce our customers’ electricity consumption by writing algorithms that maximize efficiency by minimizing idle time. We aim to ensure that our products make efficient use of physical resources, like materials and energy, throughout their life cycles. These kinds of software solutions have contributed to our own reductions in energy use, helping us to achieve our first greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target five years ahead of our 2020 goal, and to reduce our overall carbon footprint by approximately 50 percent since 2006.

Software solutions have contributed to our own reductions in our own carbon footprint by approximately 50 percent since 2006.

Trust and Security. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report 2018, cyber-attacks are now the third most likely global risk, behind only extreme weather and natural disasters. The cumulative impact of data breaches and data theft is immense, with the total cost to companies and consumers estimated to be $2 trillion by 2019. The fact is, no matter how old or new it is, every business is becoming a digital business. At CA, we offer identity and access management solutions that empower our customers to take a proactive approach to enterprise security. And when our customers are more secure, their customers can put more trust in technology, knowing their private data is being protected. We have bolstered our security capabilities with the addition of Veracode to our suite of solutions, which enables developers to run a dynamic security scan for a deployed Web application to track release content from planning to production.

Skills for the Future Workforce. We recently announced our goal to reach 50,000 under-18 students in Europe by 2020 to inspire them to consider future careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM fields), and to help address the chronic skills gap. We’re also a founding partner of the World Economic Forum’s IT Industry Skills Initiative, helping to address job displacement arising from automation and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The initiative is committed to re-skilling 1 million people with resources and training opportunities on the SkillSET portal by January 2021. In the U.S., we continue to work with our nonprofit partners to address the gap in STEM skills, including the Tech Girls Rock initiative we created with Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

At CA, our solutions help customers optimize their resources and execute on their strategic visions. They help drive competition and the economy. And they can help level the playing field by providing educational and financial opportunities to those who might not otherwise have them.

Part of being sustainable is reducing our impact by continually focusing on resource efficiency. We have accomplished a lot through this concentrated effort, and we’ll continue to work to decouple our environmental impact from that of business growth. Beyond our own operations, we believe data, insights and software are the enablers of future growth across the globe. We’re committed to unlocking these opportunities to accelerate greater efficiencies for our customers and community.
