2015 Arrow Electronics Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report

2015 Arrow Electronics Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report

Arrow Electronics’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) program guides today’s innovators to a better tomorrow. With our help, our partners will transform their ideas into real and influential achievements that will help people and the communities in which Arrow works. 

And just as technology touches all facets of our lives, we intend to foster new, cross-cutting collaborations between Arrow, our CSR partners, customers and suppliers, so their efforts yield astonishing and unforeseen results. Working together, we can make the world a better place — now and Five Years Out. 

Our view of CSR goes beyond traditional corporate philanthropy and community relations. It is a business strategy that creates competitive advantages by establishing partnerships around shared values and pursuing innovations that strengthen Arrow’s reputation and brand. We prefer to take on a few transformational projects that leverage the company’s expertise and scope, in addition to making a limited number of financial contributions to organizations that share our values and vision.
