Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at Polycom

At Polycom, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is about responsible business leadership - how we conduct our business, how we engage with all our stakeholders, and the value we seek to contribute to society.

CSR is Polycom’s approach to sustainability management, a journey to unleash the power of human collaboration and create long-term value for our business and society. We understand the importance of prioritizing and evolving based on the issues that matter the most to stakeholders and to the long-term success of our company.

To demonstrate leadership as a sustainable business, we continually strive to reduce our environmental impact while improving operational efficiency. In fact, the very nature of our products and technologies, and our dedication to innovation, quality, and reliability, empower Polycom’s customers to do the same. We take action for improving risk management to detect key environmental, social, and governance risks to operational disruptions, but we also leverage CSR to improve employee engagement and achieve ethical leadership.

What is more, we believe CSR is core to business strategy, and we’re challenging ourselves to think about the contribution Polycom can make as a company to address challenges facing the planet and humanity. To be successful, we understand the need to engage and partner with stakeholders to shape systems-wide solutions for a more sustainable and inclusive economy.

Our societal investment is grounded in the belief that Polycom empowers the platform to mobilize and collaborate, reduce barriers, and bring people together across any distance or device.

To do this, it’s critical we attract and retain top global talent by demonstrating inclusive leadership. Business practices and solutions that are globally consistent and locally relevant enable us to strengthen the collaboration experience no matter the distance or size, and across any border. Polycom’s innovations empower the human collaboration needed to realize a more sustainable world.
