SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Mar. 22 /CSRwire/ - Verizon recently released its 2012 annual report showcasing solid progress in delivering powerful answers in the areas of healthcare, education and energy management. This is the second year Verizon produced an Integrated Report, which combined its corporate responsibility performance with their traditional annual report on financial performance to offer a comprehensive vision for growth.
Verizon’s corporate responsibility is directly tied to its business strategy, so the company cannot talk about one without the other. This was the real motivator behind creating an Integrated Report.
As Verizon Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdam said in the report, “At the core of our growth strategy is our commitment to using our technology to address the world’s biggest challenges. We call this growth strategy “Shared Success,” an integrated approach to growth that drives both our business development and corporate responsibility efforts.” Verizon’s “Shared Success” opens new business markets, creates long-term value for shareowners, and helps solve community problems.
To discuss Verizon's "Shared Success" approach and the latest Integrated Report, Verizon's senior leadership, including Senior Vice President Kathryn C. Brown and Chief Sustainability Officer Jim Gowen, will participate in a webinar organized by CSRwire – and moderated by Editorial Director Aman Singh – on April 3, 2013. Among the questions we will explore:
