IBM's operational activities, products and services do not have a significant impact on biodiversity. However, IBM has been a member of the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) since 1991 — over 30 years. Four IBM sites (IBM Corporate Headquarters, New York; IBM Research Triangle Park, North Carolina; and IBM Almaden Research Center and IBM Silicon Valley Laboratory, California) have maintained WHC Conservation Certification for their wildlife habitat management and conservation education programs for over 17 years.
In addition, IBM has a goal to plant 50 pollinator gardens at IBM locations globally by year-end 2023 to support biodiversity. Planning and design are underway as we work toward this goal.
