Helping societies thrive
We are committed to helping improve lives across our global society – co-innovating with customers and partners in crucial areas such as healthcare, education, access to technology, and public safety. Whether teaching girls and boys around the world to code, bringing personalized medicine to patients, or supporting smart cities, we believe in tapping the power of technology for the greater good.
Powering a better economy
We take the term "global economy” seriously – because it means the livelihood and prosperity of all human beings in the world. We innovate with amazing social entrepreneurs and collaborate with forward-thinking teams at healthy, responsible companies. Our goal is to help strengthen industries, create jobs, and promote fair pay to reduce poverty, hunger, and exclusion.
The business of survival
And vice versa. Protecting the Planet is a big part of what we do – and why we do it. It’s the reason we actively support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, why we’ve pledged to plant 5 million trees, and the reason we create technology to help companies develop new, breakthrough ideas to address climate change and preserve endangered species.
