NEWBURY, UK – November 2, 2021 – Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced its support for The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Global Climate Program, as part of Micro Focus INSPIRE, its global Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) program designed to cover multiple aspects of what it means to be a socially and environmentally responsible global enterprise.
As world leaders meet in the UK this week to take part in the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, the company is also supporting the Count Us In project which aims to inspire 1 billion citizens to significantly reduce their carbon pollution and challenge leaders to deliver bold, global change. Employees are encouraged to join the project to make positive impacts.
“We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and making sustainable and responsible business a key part of the way we operate, and COP26 highlights an opportunity for all of us to consider how we can live and work more sustainably,” said Sarah Atkinson, Director of ESG at Micro Focus. “Micro Focus is proud to support TNC’s important work to help limit the worst impacts of climate change and to help vulnerable people and places deal with its already-tangible impacts like increasingly extreme weather conditions.”
