An enduring commitment to employees, environment and communities

The guiding principles that launched SAS in 1976 are still at its foundation. The company strives to be approachable, so customers recognize SAS as a reliable partner and not just a vendor.

It is about being customer-driven, engaging with customers to find out what they want and helping to solve their problems. It requires swiftness and agility, to adapt to changing technology and global conditions. It relies on the kind of innovation that grows in a workplace culture where employees feel valued, vested and inspired. And it demands that SAS be trustworthy, an ethical business partner that customers can count on for their critical decision-making processes.

Overarching these guiding principles is the commitment to sustainably drive operational efficiency, spawn innovation, and satisfy the expectations of customers, employees and society. This commitment and understanding are driven from the top. Through the SAS Executive Sustainability Council, top executives ensure that sustainability goals and priorities permeate every aspect of the company's operations. Externally, SAS senior management is represented on the boards of leading conservation organizations, such as The Nature Conservancy, and provides influence on the global stage through organizations such as the World Economic Forum, World Resources Institute and the Environmental Defense Fund.

This Corporate Responsibility site reflects the core values and achievements of how SAS does business as an employer, a software provider and a corporate citizen. Within this site, you can learn more about the four critical categories of corporate responsibility: Governance and Management, Education Philanthropy, Employees and Environment. This information is at the core of how we operate our business. In addition, with our 2012 CSR report, you have access to the updated metrics, initiatives and 2013 goals for each of these areas.
