Corporate Social Responsibility

Over its more than 20-year history, Promethean has worked hard to be a good corporate citizen through a variety of programs and initiatives. Recently, we developed an even more robust corporate social responsibility program to address many of the challenges we’re currently facing. The four social impact pillars that we are committed to over the next few years include Environmental Responsibility, Diversity and Inclusion, Quality Education, and Community Action.

OUR SOCIAL IMPACT

Environmental Responsibility

Promethean has joined the growing number of private-sector companies that have stepped up their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and help protect the planet from the dangers of climate change. As part of our multipronged approach, we have:

  • Achieved carbon neutrality in 2019 through offset purchases and committed to continuing to reduce our carbon footprint going forward
  • Continued improving environmental performance through ISO 14001:2015 certification and achieved Energy Star® certification for ActivPanel interactive displays
  • Participated in an offset project in Tamil Nadu, India, aiming to reduce local GHG emissions by replacing fossil fuel energy with renewable wind energy
  • Improved our outbound transportation model to reduce emissions by 30% 
  • Reduced packaging to increase transportation efficiency by 20%

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) became law in the UK in 2007. Its primary purpose is to minimise the impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by recycling rather than disposing in landfill.

Promethean fully endorses the environmental objectives of the WEEE Directive and all Promethean electronic products are marked with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol to alert customers to the fact that these products must not be disposed of with general/household waste streams but separated from other waste streams and sent to approved treatment facilities for safe recycling or disposal.

Diversity and Inclusion

One of Promethean’s core values is creating a culture that is diverse and inclusive, where all employees feel welcome and are valued for their perspectives. To support an equitable, inclusive, and diverse environment globally, we have:

  • Created four regional Employee Inclusion Groups (EIGs) to represent the voices of our employees
  • Adjusted our recruitment strategies to attract and hire the most diverse talent
  • Conducted company-wide audits and functional reviews to ensure equal pay for all employees
  • Required anti-harassment training and begun to implement unconscious bias and diversity training
  • Reached 100% supplier compliance with conflict materials and child labor and anti-slavery policies

Quality Education

As one of the world’s leading education technology companies, Promethean is dedicated to providing increased access to underserved students, schools, and communities. We do this by:

  • Making grants of panels, software, and accessories to schools
  • Donating online resources and providing free in-person training to educators

Community Action

Promethean believes it’s important for all of our employees to take an active role in improving our world. Therefore, we encourage employees to volunteer, donate, and become involved in their communities in a variety of ways, including:

  • Providing employees with two full days of PTO each year for volunteering
  • Committing to increasing employee participation in volunteer activities by 25%
  • Creating group volunteering activities for employees once we return to the office

OUR COMMITMENT

Promethean is committed to acting responsibly and ethically throughout its operations while ensuring that our business partners share our deeply rooted values. The Board of Directors has established a number of key policies reflecting this commitment, covering areas such as health and safety, environmental considerations, human rights, and ethical business conduct.

Our commitment  to honest, ethical business practices has led to the development of Promethean’s Code of Ethics Standards of Business Conduct and Promethean’s Whistle-blowing policy. Additionally, Promethean’s commitment to Human Rights and to prohibit and reject any degree of tolerance for slavery and human trafficking in connection with Promethean’s business or its supply chain around the world has led to Promethean’s Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement and Human Rights Policy. Promethean is dedicated to the development and distribution of industry-leading solutions with an unwavering focus on respecting the broader world around us which has led to Promethean’s Global Health and Safety Policy Statement.
