Corporate Social Responsibility
Computacenter is a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index series, which measures the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards; it has retained its membership for 5 years.
During 2007, the Computacenter group committed itself to the 10 core principles of United Nations Global Compact, which illustrates the company's adoption of sustainable and socially responsible policies, especially in relation to human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption.
The company also works with its customers to help them meet their 'sustainable IT' objectives. In November 2007 Computacenter won BT’s inaugural Supplier Innovation Award for its work on virtualising and consolidating a number of their UK datacentres, helping BT reduce the carbon footprint of its Windows datacentre estate by 85%. Computacenter says its cost-neutral service to Marks & Spencer has also helped M&S meet its WEEE requirements and its 'Plan A' environmental objectives, sending zero IT waste from M&S head office to landfill in 2008.

Famous quotes containing the words corporate and/or social:
“Its hard enough to adjust [to the lack of control] in the beginning, says a corporate vice president and single mother. But then you realize that everything keeps changing, so you never regain control. I was just learning to take care of the belly-button stump, when it fell off. I had just learned to make formula really efficiently, when Sarah stopped using it.”
—Anne C. Weisberg (20th century)
“Women have a hard time of it in this world. They are oppressed by man-made laws, man-made social customs, masculine egoism, the delusion of masculine superiority. Their one comfort is the assurance that, even though it may be impossible to prevail against man, it is always possible to enslave and torture a man.”
—H.L. (Henry Lewis)
