Report showcases Endava’s strong commitment to sustainability under its We Care sustainability approach
Endava (NYSE “DAVA”), one of the world’s leading providers of digital acceleration and agile software development services, today launched its annual We Care sustainability report. Endava constantly seeks to make a positive impact on its people, customers and the communities in which it operates. The company’s We Care sustainability approach is evidence that sustainability is embedded at the very heart of Endava’s business, globally.
Organised around five key areas of focus, We Care articulates Endava’s priorities in relation to its people, social impact, environmental impact and operating responsibly, as well as innovation & data integrity. We Care is in Endava’s DNA, driving the way it operates, and central to the company’s belief that technology can transform lives and whole societies. The report provides a comprehensive view of achievements and priorities in relation to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) matters, and it also constitutes the company’s communication of progress (COP) to the UN Global Compact (UNGC).
John Cotterell, Endava’s CEO, said, “Endava was founded on a set of values that remain at our very core. It is important to us that we not only succeed as a business, but also succeed ethically and sustainably. We aim to drive positive change and are constantly looking to help our clients do the same. In our 2022 report, we share important milestones in our sustainability journey and I am delighted to see the impact we make through our We Care approach.”
In 2022, Endava has been recognised for its ESG initiatives, receiving a number of awards, including CSR Project of the Year at the ANIS Awards in Romania for the tree planting project Endava Thank You Forest. Endava also received a bronze medal from EcoVadis in recognition of its very good ESG performance. In February 2022, Endava signed a commitment letter to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – a cornerstone of corporate climate action. Endavans have also been engaged in a wide range of programmes: from driving inclusivity in tech, to supporting humanitarian causes and environmental initiatives.
John continued, “We’re a global organisation and it is essential that we not only lead the way in making an impact as a company, but that we also support our people, empowering them to make a difference in their own ways and for the causes they care about. We believe we can individually and together make a positive difference for us, our customers and our communities. We’re very proud of how we’ve been able to act as a force for good, particularly through partnerships with NGOs and our focus on giving back to the communities in which we live and work.”
