IBM’s technology and talent have the power to help transform governments, institutions, communities and the quality of life for people around the world. Whether it’s improving education, revitalizing cities, addressing the challenges of economic growth and job creation, developing sustainable strategies for energy use and environmental protection, or establishing foundations for growth such as public health, environmental and economic sustainability, IBM and IBMers contribute innovative solutions to the world’s toughest societal challenges.

In response, IBM seeks out and forges the essential partnerships required to affect positive, transformative change.
