At the center of our global economy and society lies an incredible network, one we use to connect to each other, make transactions, spread information, and power our businesses and societies. F5 products sit squarely in the heart of that network, facilitating and accelerating people’s ability to use the massive potential of the web. It only makes sense, then, that the heart of that network should be driven by principles–an ethical core upon which we all depend.
To guide our contributions to that ethical heart of the data center, F5 engages its network in corporate social responsibility efforts. We call it our CSR web, and it’s woven of three core components:
We believe everyone throughout our value chain is entitled to safe ethical, and healthy living and working environments, and we work with our stakeholders to promote these values.
We are committed to delivering environmentally friendly, long lasting products and protecting the environment throughout our operations and supply chain.
We work to deliver value to our shareholders, customers, and business partners through ethical business practices and continuously innovative solutions.
Just as any strong network needs maintenance and periodic upgrades to work properly, our ability to make the F5 CSR web stronger and more complete lies in ongoing activities at four F5 strategic points of control. These represent critical ways in which we take action within and across the components of our CSR web, and they guide us in our journey toward excellence in corporate responsibility and sustainability.
We recognize that F5 is part of a complex network of people, businesses, and resources. We actively engage with our suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders to ensure that our CSR and compliance efforts are as successful as possible. By working with these four strategic points of control in the three key component areas, we can engage all of our stakeholders to build a network of responsible businesses working towards safe, ethical, and healthy working environments throughout our value chain.
