Diligent Joins The Climate Pledge Extending Commitment to Sustainability and Transformational Change

Diligent Corporation, the global leader in SaaS governance, risk and compliance (GRC) today announced it has signed The Climate Pledge, highlighting its commitment to environmental responsibility and social accountability. Joining the initiative, founded by Amazon and Global Optimism, marks another step in Diligent's environmental, social and governance (ESG) program, developed with the goal of enacting environmental and societal change. Signing the pledge also furthers the company's mission to provide innovative technology solutions to help organizations reach their individual ESG goals.

"As part of our company's journey to be an even better corporate citizen and address the environmental and social challenges our planet faces, we have joined other leading organizations in signing The Climate Pledge," said Lisa Edwards, President and COO of Diligent and board director at Colgate-Palmolive. "As a leader in providing technology solutions to governance, risk, compliance and ESG challenges, it's important that we navigate these critical endeavors alongside our customers, and continue to develop and uphold our own ESG commitments."

Earlier this year, Diligent launched several initiatives to further shape and deliver on the company's ESG strategy and fast-track the development of innovative digital solutions to address key challenges, including:

"As a leader in modern governance, we know that meaningful discussions around ESG issues need to be paired with tangible actions," said Matt DiGuiseppe, Vice President of Research & ESG at Diligent. "Signatories of The Climate Pledge agree to three principal areas of action, including regular reporting, carbon elimination and credible offsets. We're proud to be continuing progress on our ESG goals, and to be joining a community of leading businesses committed to transformational action."
