ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND GOVERNANCE
A global impact beyond business
R3 is committed to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) best practices into our business operations and product strategy. Our company-wide ESG approach is anchored in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and is tailored to meet the specific needs of our customers and colleagues.
BUILDING A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Our commitment to environmental protection
As a company, R3 is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. This commitment influences everything we do—from the partnerships we form to the products we develop. Our flagship DLT platform, Corda, is one of the most sustainable blockchain platforms—by design—on the market. Being a private, permissioned infrastructure, Corda uses minimal energy per transaction making it an inherently more sustainable option than public, permissionless blockchains, such as Ethereum.
A CULTURE OF GIVING
Our social commitment
Contributing to society through our products, our people and our business strategy is deeply rooted in R3’s culture. Led by R3 employees, our corporate social responsibility initiatives have contributed over 400K USD to more than 100 charities across the globe.
R3 also works to ensure entrepreneurs and small businesses can leverage the opportunities offered by DLT and our products through our Venture Development program. By incubating these firms and supporting them as they build solutions on our network, we have jointly created millions of dollars of value to economies all over the world.
