Veritas products can restore your data from backup but, did you know we are also working hard to restore our Earth? Everyday Veritas focuses on how products and processes, operations, partners, and supply chain use resources to ensure environmental sustainability. As head of Veritas’ Global Supply Chain Sustainability Program and leader of the Sustainability at Veritas Empowered (SAVE) chapter in Madrid, Spain, I’m proud to work for a company that believes doing the right thing for the environment drives company growth.
As we approach Earth Day on April 22, our SAVE group is taking the opportunity to highlight Veritas employees’ everyday efforts to conduct their business in an environmentally responsible manner. At Veritas, sustainability-driven innovation influences the use of resources with our partners and supply chain. Specifically, my team has been at the heart of driving many great efforts that resulted in environmental sustainability and human rights principles in Veritas’ supply chain process.
As a Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) member, Veritas requires that all Tier 1 manufacturing suppliers comply with the RBA Code of Conduct to support the rights and well-being of all workers and communities affected by its supply chain., Veritas works to reduce plastic packaging through my team’s and my efforts, partnering with an industry-leading carrier business to switch to truck and rail transportation vs. air where possible. We are also implementing recycling and reselling of end-of-life products and components in compliance with local regulations and continue to help set Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals. An important factor in executing these actions was a shift in mindset and understanding that through sustainability-driven innovation, all these actions and best practices served to help the company drive innovation, increase productivity, and increase growth.
As I reflect on the importance of environmental sustainability, I get inspired by my fellow Veritas colleagues who share my passion for making strides to restore our Earth. Throughout April, the employee-led sustainability program, SAVE, will be sharing stories of our local initiatives that increase environmental awareness and how Veritas leverages technology to measure and drive energy conservation and reduce its carbon footprint worldwide. We invite you to learn more about Veritas’ corporate responsibility for environmental sustainability.
