Values and ethics

Our business is built on a foundation of trust

To maintain our position as a market leader, it is crucial to earn and establish the trust of our customers, employees, investors, suppliers and the communities in which we operate.

Gaining trust starts with conducting our business to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. There will be zero compromise when it comes to doing what is right. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics outlines our expectations with which we expect all employees, officers, directors, vendors, contractors and partners to comply.

External partnerships and commitments

Building a better world requires collaboration across companies, sectors, borders and academia. OpenText has joined various industry initiatives to help accelerate progress and impact.

Environmental sustainability

We are continuing to invest in minimizing our environmental impacts and maintaining the highest governance standards. Staying competitive in the marketplace, attracting the best talent, and having a positive impact on the planet, means zeroing-in and holding ourselves accountable to our zero-footprint target. We understand it takes a community to achieve a monumental milestone and embrace the opportunity to reduce our footprint and help our customers and suppliers do the same.

We are committed to:

  • A science-based emissions target of 50% reduction by 2030, and net-zero by 2040
  • Zero waste from operations by 2030

Every company has a culture. Few have character.

Character grows out of the values that individuals hold—and uphold—as important to them in all aspects of their lives. It can’t be faked. It can’t be forced.
