Leading with Purpose: FY23 Highlights and Achievements
Wir legen großen Wert darauf, ESG in unser Unternehmen und unsere Kultur zu integrieren, um unsere Mitarbeiter zu inspirieren und echten Mehrwert für alle Beteiligten zu schaffen.
Our Materiality Approach
In fiscal year 2023, we conducted our company's second ESG “materiality” assessment in collaboration with Anthesis in order to identify relevant ESG topics and assess Guidewire's strengths and opportunities in each area. The ESG materiality review considered a broad range of environmental, social, governance, and economic issues important to both Guidewire's business and its external stakeholders.
Guidewire’s ESG Strategy
As part of Guidewire’s ESG materiality assessment, the company validated the three ESG pillars established in our 2020 ESG materiality assessment and both substantiated and added programs under each pillar. Additionally, we continued to evolve our product sustainability strategy, which spans all three pillars and connects to programs in each pillar.
Governance and Ethics
We foster trust and integrity by building and evolving corporate governance and compliance frameworks that support transparency, risk management, ethical conduct, and accountability.
Security and Data Privacy
As a company that delivers products as a cloud service, Guidewire takes a comprehensive approach to the governance of information and physical security and data privacy. As we grow our business and invest in the infrastructure, personnel, best practices and policies required to protect the data entrusted to us, we embrace a security and privacy first mindset.
Responsible Sourcing and Procurement
We are committed to evolving our Supplier Sustainability and Supplier Diversity programs, holding our suppliers accountable to the same high ESG standards to which we hold ourselves.
Trust and integrity are the bedrock of Guidewire culture.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB)
We promote a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging at all levels of the organizations, across the employee lifecycle, and with both business partners and local communities.
We’re committed to attracting and retaining our talented hybrid workforce by creating an environment of teamwork, collaboration, and continuous feedback. The nature of work continues to evolve, and staying on the forefront means giving employees opportunities for personal and professional development.
Guidewire Gives Back (GGB)
GGB is a program centered around employee engagement and making a measurable impact through both the hours volunteered by our Guidewire community and financial contributions. GGB strategy, programs, and collaborative partnerships reflect Guidewire employees’ passions while supporting our corporate mission.
