Sustainability and society

Knocking down barriers

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to thrive. In today's world, not everyone is given an equal chance. Discrimination, bias, lack of education, and unequal access to technology are creating barriers for many people to succeed.

We don't think that's right and it's our pledge as one of the UK's biggest technology companies to knock down these barriers to create equal opportunity.

We are committed to investing in education, technology and environmental change to give individuals, SMEs and our planet the opportunity to thrive. Our goal is to use our technology, time, and experience to back a generation of diverse, sustainable businesses.

We will do this in three key ways. Explore further to uncover our goals.
