Global Citizenship Initiative
"In dreams begins responsibility." (W.B. Yeats)
Wiley is implementing a strategic initiative to measure our performance, set realistic targets, and drive change in our social and environmental policies, practices, and programs.
We are building on the policies, practices, and programs where we already have a positive impact on our colleagues, authors, customers, partners, suppliers, shareholders, and neighbors around the world. Areas where Wiley already excels include responsible corporate governance and active community engagement. Nonetheless, there is work to be done to extend the Company's volunteer and philanthropic programs around global Wiley and better communicate our governance practices.
We are extending our efforts into selected additional areas of corporate social responsibility of importance to our stakeholders. These activities include establishing company-wide paper procurement and ethical supply chain policies as well as reducing our carbon footprint.
It may take years to reach some of our ultimate goals, but we intend to achieve measurable improvement from year to year. Our commitment is for the long-term – a promise that is imbued with the credibility of a 200+-year-old company.
