VMware’s approach to ESG not only addresses its internal operations and supply chain, but also delivers value to its customers and partners. VMware solutions help them decarbonise their digital infrastructure, increase equitable access to opportunities through distributed workforce technology, and earn trust through enhanced data privacy and security.  

“At VMware, our ESG strategy is becoming fundamental to how we do business, and we are guided by the most widely accepted ESG transparency and reporting standards. Together with our partners, we’re delivering technologies to our customers that contribute to the success of their ESG activities. We know that we can create an even greater impact through the success of our customers and partners,” said Joe Baguley, CTO, EMEA at VMware.  

“At VMware, ESG encompasses both operational performance and impact which allows us to co-innovate with customers and partners, and to inspire all stakeholders by moving from aspiration to action. We recognise that we have a long way to go to realise VMware’s vision to build a more sustainable, equitable and secure future for all. However, the 2022 ESG report shows we are positioned well to accelerate this critical work in the coming years,” said Nicola Acutt, VP, Environmental, Social, and Governance, at VMware.
