About this Report
IBM’s Corporate Responsibility Report is published annually during the second quarter of the subsequent calendar year. This report covers our performance in 2010 and some notable activities during the first half of 2011.
To select the content for inclusion in the 2010 Corporate Responsibility Report, we have used the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Reporting Principles of materiality, sustainability context, stakeholder inclusiveness and completeness. IBM also provides on its corporate responsibility Web site a comprehensive GRI Report utilizing the GRI G3 Sustainability Guidelines at a self-declared GRI Applicant Level A.
Unless otherwise noted, the data in the report covers our global operations. More details about IBM’s corporate responsibility activities and performance are available here. Information about our business and financial performance is provided in our 2010 Annual Report. IBM did not employ an external agency or organization to audit the 2010 Corporate Responsibility Report. The metrics contained therein and in this summary were generated using IBM’s corporate accounting systems audited by IBM’s internal audit staff.
