Living our core values
Ethics, human rights and strong corporate governance are key drivers of our business strategy. Our people live our core values, using our governance structure and Code of Business Ethics to guide them.
By scaling AI, analytics and automation, we can empower people and processes responsibly. And we continually consider and monitor the unintended consequences of AI and related technologies—it’s one of our highest Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) priorities.

Respecting human rights
Our commitment to supporting and respecting human rights is the common thread that connects our business and operations.

Committing to digital responsibility
To build and maintain trust, businesses must use data and AI ethically.
Safeguarding data is one of our most important responsibilities. We are continually evolving our approach to information security and data protection.
