Sustainability and society

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to thrive. But in today’s world, not everyone is given an equal chance. Barriers including discrimination, poverty and unequal access to education, technology and data, stack the odds against marginalised communities and under-represented groups. 

We know that in many of these areas, Sage can make a real difference. Our Sustainability and Society strategy is built on three key pillars underpinned by strong ESG fundamentals: Protect the Planet, Tech for Good and Fuel for Business.

Find out more about our strategic direction, performance and ambitions in our FY22 Sustainability and Society Report.

Our three pillars

Protect the Planet

Our Protect the Planet pillar is our commitment to fight climate change. We are delivering on it by halving our own emissions by 2030 and becoming net zero by 2040, supporting SMBs to get to net zero and by advocating for regulatory frameworks to support the transition to a low carbon economy.

Tech for Good

We are committed to building a trusted and inclusive digital network. Through our Tech for Good pillar we want to ensure everyone has equal opportunities to access life-changing data and technology, while championing data protection, security, and the ethical use of customer data.

Fuel for Business

Our Fuel for Business pillar is our approach to tackling economic inequality by supporting underrepresented groups. It supports programmes that inspire and empower a generation of entrepreneurs, providing access and inclusion to entrepreneurship and encouraging successful businesses across our communities.
