Splunk’s 2021 Global Impact Report Highlights a Data-Driven Approach to Addressing Important Global Challenges
Splunk, the data platform leader for security and observability, released its 2021 Global Impact Report, detailing the company’s approach and engagement with the societal and environmental issues that matter most to its stakeholders and business.
The 2021 Global Impact Report outlines Splunk’s new Global Impact mission, guiding principles, and the company’s four-pillar Global Impact Strategy. The report reflects Splunk’s core belief that data and innovation can help solve seemingly intractable problems.
The 2021 Global Impact Report outlines the Social Impact programs, commitments and initiatives that help Splunk engage communities, employees, businesses, nonprofits and academia, and empower traditionally underrepresented members of society, providing pathways to thrive in the data age.
To share progress, the company publishes its Splunk Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Annual Report and key metrics of workforce composition, which is also included in the ESG Data Tables section of the 2021 Global Impact Report for further transparency.
Splunk also supports a flexible policy framework that builds confidence and trust in AI systems, encourages investment in related research and development, strengthens cybersecurity and privacy protections, and takes into account different types of AI and machine learning to avoid hampering innovation unnecessarily.
A refreshed climate risk and opportunities assessment will also be conducted over the course of the company’s next fiscal year as part of its global Climate Resilience and Innovation Strategy planning work. The assessment will evaluate physical and transitional risks related to climate change. Results of the assessment will be shared in alignment with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations.
Splunk’s 2021 Global Impact Report celebrates employees and key partnerships using data for good. The company’s response to COVID-19, including how employees helped to create informative public-facing data dashboards and a screening and testing solution used during the initial outbreak, is also highlighted.
Splunk’s Global Impact Report aligns to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), The Climate-related Financial Disclosures Board (TCFD) and the latest version of the GRI Standards, the leading practice frameworks and guidelines for corporate reporting.
