BLUE BELL, Pa., June 13, 2023 – Unisys (NYSE: UIS) announces the release of the company’s 2022 Sustainability Report, detailing the progress made in the past year towards achieving the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals of the organization. Since releasing its first corporate sustainability report in 1994, Unisys has continued to drive breakthroughs not only for the company but also for its clients. This year’s report is no exception.
“From the diversity of our team ranging from associates to the board of directors, as well as delivering on our long-standing environmental commitments, I am proud of our progress — yet recognize that there is more work to do,” said Peter Altabef chair and chief executive officer at Unisys.
Meaningful advancements in making climate actions a business priority
In 2022, Unisys set a new goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) for Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) sources by 2030. In addition, the company accomplished its 2026 goal to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 75%, five years ahead of schedule.
Unisys continues to drive excellence in minimizing its environmental footprint from the associate to the corporate level. The success of these efforts to date is a testimony of the company and its leadership team in making climate action a business priority.
Key achievements include:
Fulfilling the aims of an inclusive and engaged culture
The 2022 Sustainability Report highlights the organization’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). One area of progress is the growth in the percentage of women both in the workforce and in leadership positions:
In 2022, Unisys launched mandatory DEI training for all associates to make sure DEI is embedded in all levels of the company. Additionally, every senior leader at Unisys participates in the company’s “Inclusive Leadership” workshop, which helps them understand and mitigate unconscious bias. The impact of these efforts is demonstrated in the Unisys DEI Index, an annual survey of its associates to assess perspectives of DEI efforts across the company.
In 2022, key successes include:
A culture of values from the top
From a governance perspective, Unisys continues to drive a values-based culture, which is reflected in the company's leadership. In 2022, more than half (seven) of its 12 board members were either female or belonged to ethnically diverse groups.
Further, the company’s leadership team has committed to growing relationships with suppliers and partners that have like-minded ESG policies and/or programs, asking its network of 6,000 suppliers to align with the company’s values outlined in the Unisys Business Partner Code of Business Conduct. The commitment of Unisys partners to the company’s ESG goals advances progress toward building a sustainable enterprise for the company and its clients.
“The programs and policies we live by every day create a better employee experience and enable our people to better serve our clients and positively impact our communities,” said Claudius O. Sokenu, general counsel and chief administrative officer. “The successes of the past year and our determination to lead in ESG make the world a better place.”
