ServiceNow Publishes 2022 Global Impact Report Detailing ESG Progress
Analyst Take: ServiceNow prides itself on being a purpose-driven company committed to sustainable, long-term value creation. The digital workflow platform emphasizes that its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals are a vital part of its strategy, decision-making process, and company culture. This dedication is firmly reflected in ServiceNow’s Global Impact Report, which was released in conjunction with Earth Day.
ServiceNow’s belief in the centrality of ESG progress to responsible business leadership extends to the platform’s users. The report highlights the 2021 release of its integrated ESG Command Center, which includes an ESG Management product designed to help customers set and achieve their own ESG goals. Continual development of ESG solutions on the ServiceNow platform will enable users to identify and address risks and opportunities across the complex ESG landscape.
ServiceNow’s own ESG commitments and goals are ambitious and inspiring, providing a template (or at least food for thought) for other companies seeking to create sustainable, equitable, purpose-driven growth.
ServiceNow’s Global Impact Report Outlines Commitments, Goals
A few of the most notable details of ServiceNow’s Global Impact Report include the company’s decision to tie executive compensation to meeting its environmental and diversity goals, commitment to achieving Net Zero Emissions by 2030, and to providing users with a carbon neutral cloud in 2022. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts are a tentpole of the company’s ESG framework, with goals including the achievement of systematic pay equity, increasing representation of diverse talent, and full distribution of its $100 million Racial Equity fund to drive sustainable wealth creation in minority communities.
I really appreciate how ServiceNow’s ESG and DEI goals are fully integrated into the company’s strategy, decision making, and company culture. Rather than side projects, they inform every decision in both internal and external development efforts. ServiceNow’s Global Impact Report demonstrates that the company is not only a leading voice in ESG and DEI, but continually working to empower their platform’s users to follow their lead in setting and achieving these important goals. Responsible business leadership is more than a buzzword – it’s a continual practice that enables the creation of sustainable, long-term value with a positive impact on organizations and the communities they serve.
