Today, NortonLifeLock Inc. (NASDAQ: NLOK) releases its 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report, the company’s first corporate responsibility report as a standalone consumer company following the asset sale and integration of its enterprise business to Broadcom. NortonLifeLock is a global leader in consumer Cyber Safety, dedicated to helping secure the devices, identities, online privacy, and home and family needs of approximately 50 million consumers in over 60 countries.

2020 was a year of transition for the company, and NortonLifeLock used this year to reevaluate and evolve its corporate responsibility commitments to better align with its new, more focused business priorities. The 2020 report showcases progress around the company’s priority issues including efforts to operate ethically, safeguard its customer, partner, and employee data, support the communities where employees live and work, minimize its environmental footprint, and build a strong, diverse, and passionate team.

As an example, to leverage NortonLifeLock’s leading expertise in Cyber Safety, it partnered with National Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) to create The Smart Talk, an interactive tool that encourages children and their caregivers to set tech ground rules together. In FY20, 160 PTAs across the U.S. held a Safer Internet Day event focused on The Smart Talk, reaching 6,600 people.

Developing partnerships and investments to support diversity inside and out of NortonLifeLock is one of the company’s corporate responsibility objectives. In partnership with the Nasscom Foundation, NortonLifeLock launched the Cyber Security Skills Development Initiative for Women in FY20. The initiative, conducted in Bangalore, Chennai, and Pune, India in January and February of 2020, trained 121 women, and to date, 11 women from the program have been placed into jobs.

Other highlights from FY20 include:

  • NortonLifeLock product donations, with a retail value of nearly $11 million, helped 14,678 nonprofits and public libraries keep their devices and data secure.
  • NortonLifeLock team members provided 18,726 hours of volunteer service to the communities in which they live and work.
  • Globally, women made up 31% of its workforce and the company’s annual pay equity review showed that pay ratios are equitable across all workforce levels.
  • 24% of the energy used by NortonLifeLock in FY20 was from renewable sources.
  • 32% of all NortonLifeLock products are currently made with and packaged in Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper.

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of its employees and customers remain a top priority. The company offered a complimentary 6-month subscription to Norton Family to help parents monitor and manage their children’s online activities, continues to publish free resources, including how to protect yourself from phishing scams and keep connections secure, and provided monetary support to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
