Environmental, Social and Governance

SUSE builds upon the strengths of our people, shares through corporate philanthropy, and aspires to positively impact the environment.

Open Source and ESG

Open source, by definition, transcends boundaries and individual limitations by leveraging the Power of Many. SUSE’s open source business model goes beyond the enablement of customer innovation.

It is based on Environmental, Social and Governance values, drawing on the Power of Many for the benefit of all. Open source and commitment to making the world a better place are both in SUSE’s DNA.

ESG Vision

We want to drive real impact around societal and environmental topics that matter to SUSE and our external stakeholders. To get there, we focus on strong leadership, employee engagement and strategic external partnerships.

Leadership Commitment
  • Reporting directly to the CEO, represented at Board level
  • Developing strategy, goals, and public commitments
  • Managing material risks
  • Launching new platforms and programs, including SUSECares and the SUSE Forest
Employee Engagement
  • Engaging via Employee Network Groups with representation across geographies, functions and levels
  • Promoting employee volunteering with 1 paid day a year
  • Supporting employee-led initiatives
External Partners
  • We believe that we can make the most impact by focusing our efforts on a few selected impact-driven organizations that align to our values.
  • Some of our external partners we will partner with this year include Eden Reforestation Projects and EveryWoman.

SUSE has a strong sustainability vision, leadership commitment, and is a purpose-driven organization that is already making real impact.

Our open source business model is based on ESG values encompassed by engagement of our employees.

We have a strong sense of commitment to society and the environment

Philanthropy is a core part of SUSE’s ESG agenda. As such, we offer all employees one volunteer day a year to support causes around the world that are meaningful to them. We also enable employees to donate to their select philanthropic causes through a dedicated corporate philanthropy program, SUSEcares.
