Corporate Social Responsibility Policy and Program
Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) refers to the way in which businesses regulate themselves in order to ensure that their activities positively affect society. This policy outlines Maplesoft’s commitment to work ethically, considering human rights as well as the social, economic and environmental impacts of our business.
Maplesoft adheres to the following core values:
Respect: Respect is the foundation on which everything else is built. We recognize and appreciate the importance of everyone’s role.
Community: Foster a community of teamwork, collaboration and transparency. We achieve greater results when working together in an informal, fun and balanced environment.
Accountability: Take ownership of all tasks and responsibilities. We honour our commitments and we acknowledge and learn from our mistakes.
Passion and Pride: We are constantly pursuing excellence. We find inspiration in the work we do and meaning in the product we create. We pride ourselves on building one of the top software products in the world and we are excited about the future.
Advancing Knowledge: We are always innovating; we are always moving forward. We seek new and better ways to serve our customers and solve problems. We are continually growing and learning, as a company and as individuals. We are not only advancing our product, but advancing knowledge.
At Maplesoft, we strive to foster a sustainable future and contribute meaningful improvements in our communities.
In 2019 we founded the Maplesoft Cares committee. This cross-departmental group of Maplesoft employees meets regularly to develop and launch initiatives to contribute to the protection of our environment and to give back to the communities in which we operate.
Protecting the Environment
At Maplesoft, we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and support sustainability. Initiatives such as buying carbon offsets for all corporate flights, incentives to use public transportation and food composting in our offices highlight our commitment to protecting our environment. We strive to reduce plastic, paper and energy consumption in our offices.
At Maplesoft, we give back to the communities in which we do business. We donate funds to local charities, including those selected by our employees, and encourage employees to participate in fundraising initiatives. We look for opportunities to support education and STEM initiatives around the world as well as local community programs.
We support and sponsor local events and initiatives and have a close working relationship with academic institutions and community organizations in our region.
