(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) July 14, 2011 - Pearson is pleased to share our latest corporate responsibility report, Our Impact on Society 2010 - read it online or download the PDF at

The report sets out a new framework for our corporate responsibility agenda:
  1. It starts with our corporate strategy and purpose: to be the world’s leading learning company and to help people make progress in their lives. 

  2. We focus on three key issues of social and economic importance where we believe Pearson has a unique role to play: literacy, learning outcomes and competitiveness. 

  3. We recognise a wide additional agenda for responsible business activities that covers a range of disciplines from environmental sustainability to supply chain management to diversity policies to the work of our charitable arm, the Pearson Foundation. 

  4. And our definition of ‘responsible business’ is built on and contributes to our company culture, values and behaviour.

The report focuses on our role in raising literacy standards, improving learning outcomes and contributing to competitiveness, through case studies, measures of performance and videos.
We would appreciate your thoughts on the report and also on the new corporate responsibility framework. Get in touch with our head of corporate responsibility, Peter Hughes here:
