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 to success, including discrimination, poverty and unequal access to education, technology and data, stack the odds against marginalised communities and under-represented groups. 

We know that Sage can make a real difference in many of these areas. Our Sustainability and Society strategy is built on three key pillars founded 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.
