CAMPAIGN: Our Impact on Society

CONTENT: Press Release

(3BL Media) June 14, 2012 - Last year, Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, set out a new framework for our corporate responsibility agenda:

  1. We start with our company strategy and purpose. Pearson is a commercial organisation with a social purpose: to help people make progress in their lives through learning. We believe our commercial goals and our social purpose are mutually reinforcing and that our financial strength provides the means for us to invest and innovate.
     
  2. We focus on three key issues of social and economic importance where we believe Pearson can make a unique contribution. They are literacy, learning outcomes and competitiveness.
     
  3. Beyond those three issues, we have a wider agenda for responsible business practice that covers our interest in nurturing diversity, investment in community partnerships, supply chain management and environmental responsibility. 
     
  4. We recognise that our approach to responsible business is grounded in our company values, ethics and behaviour

Our latest corporate responsibility report, Our Impact on Society 2011, sets out the commitments we have made and the actions we are taking around the company.
