Corporate Responsibility in Action

From climate change to cyber security to employee diversity, corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability touches every aspect of Symantec’s business. We’ve defined our strategy and are continually working towards our goals to operate as a responsible global citizen. In addition to our dedicated global corporate responsibility team, every day Symantec employees across the world are helping us deliver on this, creating value for both our business and our stakeholders.

We are happy to bring you an ongoing feature of the CR in Action blog – the Sustainability Spotlight - that will profile employees and their contribution to Symantec’s CR and sustainability efforts. Some are members of our CR team, others contribute through our Green Teams or volunteering, some have seen an opportunity and developed programs in their function or region -- all are making a difference.

Today we hear from Louise Hanlon, Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Manager for the EMEA region. Louise has recently joined Symantec to develop and move forward Symantec’s Corporate Responsibility strategy and program in the EMEA region.

Three months ago I was honored to join Symantec as the Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Manager for the EMEA region based in the Reading, UK office. This is Symantec’s first CR manager outside the US, signaling our commitment to developing our global strategy.

I am passionate about helping businesses operate responsibly and forging relationships between the variety of stakeholders that make this possible, including employees, non-profits, media, government, peers/competitors and industry organizations. I am extremely happy to have this opportunity to join a company with a strong CR program and strategy in place that is clearly linked to the core business. A lot has been accomplished across Symantec’s global operations and I look forward to driving forward this momentum in the EMEA region.
