Motorola recognised as a responsible corporate citizen

The 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report has been released by Motorola Solutions, highlighting its performance as a responsible corporate citizen.

Organisations that are committed to operating ethically, protecting the environment and supporting the communities where they operate are considered to be responsible corporations.

“We’re proud of the progress we made in 2017, and our momentum will continue throughout 2018 as we celebrate the company’s 90th anniversary. Since 1928, we have maintained a long and proud heritage as a global company that conducts our business with integrity, continually enhances and improves our environment, and forges strong partnerships in the communities where we live, work and do business,” said Terry Bell, Vice President, Environment, Health and Safety at Motorola Solutions.

Highlights from the 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report include:

  • Donated $10.7 million from the Motorola Solutions Foundation to support more than three million students, teachers, first responders and their families affiliated with more than 260 organisations in 37 countries.
  • Completed 36,000 employee volunteer hours.
  • Produced 29.6% less waste compared with the previous year.
  • Reduced global water use by 25% and company-wide electricity use by 15%.
  • Decreased total carbon footprint by 20%.

Additionally, Motorola Solutions was honoured for the fifth consecutive year by the Points of Light Foundation with its Civic 50 award, which recognises the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States.

Motorola Solutions also has been recognised by Barron’s (Top 100 Sustainable Companies 2018), Forbes (Just 100 America’s Best Corporate Citizens 2017), Newsweek (Top US Green Companies 2017) and Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index (2017).
