Corporate Responsibility

Making a Difference, Not Just a Living

If you know IBM, the scope and depth of the initiatives detailed in our 2015 Corporate Responsibility Report will not surprise you. IBM undertakes actions at scale, and because corporate responsibility is fully integrated with our overall business strategy, our CSR programs are global in reach as they seek to enable fundamental transformations of societal challenges into meaningful solutions.


Each year, we address such issues as educationhealth, citizen diplomacycitieseconomic and workforce developmentdisaster preparedness, response and recovery; and skills-based volunteering and community support. We continually pursue new and better ways to engage, empower and protect our workforce. We are leaders in environmental protection and stewardship. And the core values that determine the way we govern the conduct of our company extend to our employees and leaders, and our IBM Business Partners and suppliers.


Our corporate citizenship portfolio integrates numerous individual programs, each with its own system of moving parts. But what concerns us at this time each year is reporting on results –the sweeping benefits of IBM’s activities to people, to societies and nations, and to our planet. We invite you to read, share and save our Corporate Responsibility Report both as a narrative of IBM’s holistic approach to business and citizenship, and as a guide to how we leverage our technology, our talented employees and our commitment to service to make positive contributions around the world.

Stanley S. Litow is IBM’s Vice President of Corporate Responsibility & Corporate Affairs and President of the IBM International Foundation.
