(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) September 28, 2011 - Symantec Corp. today released its 2011 Corporate Responsibility report. The report addresses high-priority issues for Symantec including climate and energy, customer satisfaction, diversity, human rights, talent retention, securing information, philanthropy, and governance and ethics.  The report can be found in its entirety at the following link: http://www.reportalert.info/ra/profiles/Symantec/2011/?ID=41663

The report outlines Symantec’s progress against its 2010 goals including:

- Cybersecurity: Symantec focuses resources on educating parents, schools, and students about safe, secure, and ethical practices on the Internet. Norton Online Family, the award-winning online family safety service, is available for free, worldwide, in 25 languages. Previously available in English only, Norton Online Family gives parents the tools they need to not only block inappropriate websites but also connect with their children’s online lives.

- Climate and energy: One way Symantec is working to reduce its carbon footprint is by applying green building practices to its real estate portfolio. In FY11, Symantec nearly doubled the number of U.S. Green Building Council LEED-certified buildings, from nine in FY10 to a total of 16, including an enterprise data center. In FY11, this data center also achieved EPA ENERGY STAR.

- Diversity: The attraction and retention of women is a challenge for Symantec and the technology industry, which is why it focuses on empowering, advancing and investing in women. In FY11, Symantec increased the percentage of women in leadership, crafted career development goals for top-performing technical women, and almost doubled its Symantec Women’s Action Networks chapters from ten to 17 worldwide.

- Governance and ethics. Ethics and integrity are the foundation of Symantec’s business success, which is why in FY11 Symantec adopted a Global Supply Chain Manufacturing and Fulfillment Code of Conduct for its Direct Suppliers. This code of conduct is based on the Electronics Industry Code of Conduct and International Labor Organization’s core conventions.
