Making the world a better place is a guiding principle embedded in IBM’s core values. As COVID-19 continues to present unprecedented, global challenges for individuals, communities and organizations across the globe, we continue to take a stand and do what’s right to reestablish health and safety across the globe. I’m constantly in awe with the ingenuity and collaborative effort across sectors that have all stepped up in response to this crisis.
The theme for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day 2020 is climate action. Not merely just the enormous challenge we face, but also the vast opportunities everyone can take advantage of to help solve climate change, one of the most pressing topics of our time.
There are so many ways to get involved–from changing how we consume and live, to building sustainable solutions that will help our collective tomorrow.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. As we observe this occasion in the midst of a global pandemic, it strikes me as a timely reminder that we must not relegate climate change and the health of our planet to the back burner. Rather, Earth Day 2020 is a chance to reflect on the lessons that COVID-19 teaches us about the Earth, our environment, and ourselves.
Nearly one month ago, together with Creator David Clark Cause and in partnership with United Nations Human Rights and the Linux Foundation, we announced climate change as the theme for the 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge. In that brief period, much has changed. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has spread across the world with unprecedented effect and now has the potential to become the greatest crisis of modern times.
At IBM, I have the privilege of working with colleagues who have dedicated their lives and careers to advancing science and creating innovative technology that can be a force for progress in the world. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic we have been working closely with governments in the U.S.
We believe that over the next 10 years, effective CSR initiatives of purpose-driven companies will be characterized by three principles: business alignment, user-centricity and co-creation.
Corporate social responsibility—the practice of companies holding themselves accountable to serve a social purpose and make a positive impact—was not always the main focus of business leaders. Channel some profits into philanthropy, it was thought, and you’ve checked the CSR box.
