At Oracle, Sustainability Is Everyone’s Business
Good corporate citizenship means being intentional and thoughtful about the value we generate as a company—not only for our shareholders, but also for our people, our planet, and future generations. It means applying the same level of commitment, rigor, and sincerity to changing lives as we do to building cutting-edge technology for our customers.

We also operate an efficient, clean, and circular Oracle Cloud that enables our customers to not only drive business value but also lower their environmental impact. These efforts are well aligned with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals including Responsible Production and Consumption, Affordable and Clean Energy and Climate Action.

These efforts are aligned with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals including Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Quality Education, Good Health and Well-Being, and Sustainable Cities and Communities. Successful organizations integrate sustainability into core business activities throughout their value chains and as such information technology is key to enabling more impactful, far-reaching, and cost-effective results.
