Corporate Citizens

Last week, Oracle was named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 2019 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, which recognizes outstanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance amongst the 1,000 largest US public companies. Oracle ranked #41, up from #97 in 2018—a testament to the tremendous progress we have made in our global corporate citizenship efforts in the past year.

“Good corporate citizenship means being intentional and thoughtful about the value we generate as a company—not only for our shareholders, but also for our people, our planet, and future generations,” says Oracle CEO Safra Catz. “It means applying the same level of commitment, rigor, and sincerity to changing lives as we do to building cutting-edge technology for our customers.”

Here are a few key highlights from FY18:

  • Oracle made history by building a permanent home for Design Tech High School—a California public charter high school—on its headquarters campus.
  • Through Oracle Giving, we donated US$20 million to support more than 4,600 nonprofit organizations globally.
  • More than 25,000 Oracle Volunteers donated 100,000 hours globally to support causes close to their hearts.  
  • We achieved 100% renewable energy use at 58 Oracle offices around the world, and were recognized on the CDP Climate A List for the third consecutive year.
  • We were included on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for the eleventh year in a row.

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking uses 134 total corporate disclosure and performance factors in several categories, including climate change, environment, finance, governance, human rights, and stakeholders and society. See the full list here.
