Our ESG Program
Environmental, Social, and Governance at UKG

Our ESG program serves to coordinate and optimize activities we manage in support of our beliefs, identify opportunities to grow and strengthen our commitments, and demonstrate positive impacts we make through measurable progress and tangible results.

We firmly believe in doing the right thing for our employees, our customers, and our communities.

Chris Todd, President UKG

“ESG is core to the work we do every day at UKG and ties directly to our purpose: people. We know that our commitment to ESG will only enhance the culture we create for our U Krewers, the experience we create for our customers, and the support we provide to our communities around the world.”

Our ESG Policy
Our ESG Policy

Our ESG Policy — together with our Environmental Policy, Human Rights Policy, Code of Conduct, Supplier Code of Conduct, and other operational policies — demonstrates our commitment to ESG practices and operations. This commitment enhances our already-strong background in governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR), with significant investment and focus on diversity, ethics, compliance, community giving, and philanthropic projects.

Sharing Our Progress

Sharing Our Progress

We know that transparency is critical to share our values, partner with our stakeholders, and continually increase our social impact. That’s why we’re strengthening our corporate commitments and holding ourselves accountable by sharing our ESG program progress with an executive steering committee and key stakeholders — and publicly with our communities — as we establish our goals, measure our progress, and build toward a better future for all people.

UKG Materiality Assessment

UKG Materiality Assessment

Every two years, UKG conducts a Materiality Assessment to solicit feedback from a diverse number of stakeholders to ensure that we remain current with the material items that matter most to them, while also confirming that we’re focused on the right areas that will have the biggest impact on our business operations, employees, communities, and the environment.
