Diligent is committed to carbon reduction and has pledged to reach Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2040. As part of meeting this commitment, we have created and filled a leadership position to help coordinate efforts across our facilities and operations teams and throughout our supply chain. Currently, four of our six global headquarters meet LEED standards:
We believe in giving back to our customers, our communities and society in a variety of ways, including:
We believe that diverse leadership is essential to modern governance. Through Diligent’s Modern Leadership Initiative, we launched the Director Network – the largest and most diverse global database and social network of current and rising corporate directors. The Network facilitates filling open board and top executive roles with qualified candidates from across the spectrum of race, ethnicity, nationality, LGBTQ+ status, gender, age and expertise.
That said, as a company, Diligent also has work to do to move the needle, including being transparent about our diversity data. To help accelerate our progress on diversity, equity, inclusion and intersectionality, we have taken the following steps:
As a partner with the World Economic Forum (WEF), Diligent is committed to implementing the WEF International Business Council’s “Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism” ESG metrics. In combination with the SASB framework, we will use these measures to determine which metrics to track, and how to report our progress back to our community.
Additionally, Diligent will continue to explore ways to ensure we are holding ourselves accountable and being transparent with our stakeholders about our advancements and areas for improvement. We are exploring the best way for Diligent’s board to oversee its ESG commitments and progress, for example, by tying executive compensation to meeting ESG goals and other non-financial metrics. While there is still much yet to be decided, we are on the path. Stay tuned for regular updates from Diligent about our ESG journey.
