Community & CSR

As our global network continues to connect Colt customers, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) connects our colleagues to their local communities, and we believe that investing in the future is what truly matters. We are a global digital infrastructure company, and our aim is to help underrepresented groups discover the potential of digital technology.

Social Impact Strategy

After a collaborative process in 2023 we are happy to announce the release of our Global Social Impact Strategy. Aligned with our purpose, values, and ESG Strategy, as well as the UN Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals we have decided to focus our CSR efforts on digital education and inclusion. We will bring our expertise and resources together to support the development of digital skills and STEM education, with a special focus on disadvantaged children and youth, and other underrepresented groups.

Under this strategic objective we are building collaborations with educational entities, community centers, not-for profits and charities focusing our efforts on digital education and inclusion by helping underrepresented groups and excluded youth discover their potential in the digital industry, find employment and to become engaged and connected citizens.

We know people matter: Our business purpose is to put the power of the digital universe in the hands of our customers wherever, whenever and however they want. In order to do so we also need to take care of the communities in which we operate and provide them with the digital education skills to access this universe.

We always find a better way: Digital education provides competences and skills that are essential to give every individual an equal chance to thrive in life through the use of digital technologies. By promoting STEM education (teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary approach) and bringing our practical expertise we can support disadvantaged youth develop their talent and help them enter the job market.
