BlackBerry Releases Inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance Report

BlackBerry outlines ESG strategy, accomplishments, and agenda, and advances the United Nations Global Goals

BlackBerry has released its inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report, outlining BlackBerry’s ESG strategy, accomplishments, and agenda, and how the company is advancing the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Aligning the company’s expertise to address the technology industry’s most critical environmental, social, and economic impacts, BlackBerry’s ESG strategy focuses on three key areas:

  • Climate change, which is a defining issue of our time, and poses an increasing threat to national and global security.  BlackBerry has achieved carbon neutrality and is continuing to act on climate change.
  • Water security, which is challenging the world’s population, across issues such as clean water access, extreme flooding, and the cybersecurity of water systems.  BlackBerry has developed a first-of-its-kind flood risk and clean water monitoring solution, as one of its initiatives to help tackle water security. 
  • Equality, which is a basic human right, has regressed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and could add trillions of dollars to global GDP.  BlackBerry has increased the diversity of its Board of Directors to 56%, based on gender and race, and is partnering to help advance social equality.  

“The role of businesses in global sustainability, and ESG in business resiliency, has never been more important than it is today,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman & CEO, BlackBerry. 

“As the world contends with rising social and economic inequality, and consequential events such as the COVID-19 pandemic, disrupted supply chains, extreme weather, the war in Ukraine, an unprecedented level of cyberthreats, and much more, BlackBerry is proud to do our part to serve our stakeholders through our investments in global sustainability.  Our ESG strategy is embedded in our corporate strategy, and we are committed to making ongoing investments.”
