We all share one planet and are one humanity. It’s a truth both simple and profound, and one that drives our sustainability efforts at Oracle. Sustainability is inherent in the way we think about and approach nearly every aspect of our business, from operational efficiency to product development to employee engagement.
Throughout this report, you will read about the incredible collaboration among our many stakeholders—including our employees, customers, and partners—to identify and address the areas that are most material to Oracle. You will also read about the phenomenal progress we've made toward achieving our ambitious 2020 goals and the ways we continue to raise the bar for ourselves.
There is always more work to be done, and Oracle remains committed to building a resilient future for our planet, for humanity, and for future generations. Together we are changing lives around the world, and with the growth in new disruptive technologies, including the cloud, I am more hopeful now than ever before that we can achieve the Sustainable Development Goals necessary to benefit our planet and the life it sustains.
