Avalara Announces Launch of Corporate Sustainability Website

Avalara, Inc. (NYSE: AVLR), a leading provider of tax compliance automation for businesses of all sizes, today announces the launch of its corporate sustainability site, highlighting its existing initiatives, and outlining the ongoing commitment to being a responsible employer and corporate leader in social, environmental, and governance programs. Since its earliest days, Avalara has focused and prided itself on its unique company culture, one focused on the growth and support of our global team. Building and maintaining strong culture requires continued focus, improvement, and investment in policies and programs that reflect the needs and priorities of our employees, communities, and the global economy.

The company's corporate sustainability efforts are divided into three focus areas:

  1. Employee engagement and growth: Avalara supports its employees to achieve their personal and professional goals, serve their communities, and make an impact and each other. At work, Avalara provides education and leadership development opportunities for employees to expand their skills and impact within the organization. Beyond the office, Avalara supports the health, safety, and well-being of its extended team, including employees and their families. From educational programs like AvaKids for parents of young children to Care.com memberships, Avalara provides support and curriculum surrounding our team members. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Avalara bolstered its employee health and safety programs, enabling and funding remote work for nearly 100 percent of our global team, as well as promoting mental health and physical well-being programs for employees at home. Avalara improves its business and its team by building a diverse and inclusive workforce, including funding programs to recruit and support a diverse employee population.
  2. Privacy and security: In a global, digital economy, Avalara recognizes and embraces its responsibility to protect the privacy of individuals whose personal data it collects, including its employees and customers. Avalara recognizes that cybersecurity threats must be addressed collectively and is active within the security research community.
  3. Environmental sustainability: Avalara focuses on the responsible management of its energy consumption, waste, and recycling methods, including sustainable sourcing.

"We believe that sustainability is a key component to long-term value and business resiliency, and we are grateful for the trust our employees, customers, partners, and investors have put into our business to continuously improve our efforts. We believe our greatest impact is made through our employees by recruiting, training, mentoring, and furthering the careers of a diverse and ambitious team," said Scott McFarlane, Avalara co-founder and chief executive officer. "We recognize that as our company grows, so do our responsibilities and welcome the opportunity to do more."

As we focus on continuous improvement in key initiatives, the Avalara board is committed to the oversight of the environmental, social, and governance objectives and supports ongoing investment in these areas.
