BMC launches ESG report
Global leader in software solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, BMC (www.bmc.com) launches its annual Corporate Citizenship and ESG Impact Report and highlights the company’s continued commitment to reduce its carbon footprint, support DEI, sustainability and social causes.
BMC’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) approach centres on three key pillars – the BMC Cares programme; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); and environmental stewardship – guided by ESG best practices for the software and services industry and grounded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
“Being a socially responsible organization creates an opportunity and expectation for each of us to make the right decisions to collectively impact climate change, diversity and inclusion, and make the world a better place,” explains Ayman Sayed, President and CEO, BMC.
Highlighted in the report are some of the impactful initiatives aligned to BMC’s purpose-driven commitments, including:
• BMC Cares – empowers the BMC global workforce to invest in people and enrich communities where we work and live through digital literacy, interventions, and accessibility, benefiting more than 700 non-profits around the world.
• Annual International Day of Service — BMC global volunteer time off (VTO) day where employees participated in both in-person and virtual events totalling 52,208 hours of volunteer work, supporting over 362 volunteer organizations across 38 countries on 16 January 2023.
• Gender Equity – Launched campaigns with UN Women and HeForShe around the importance of male allyship to advance equity, specifically in the tech ecosystem, and drove awareness through the annual Global Move event where more than 1,400 participants logged 3,080 hours to raise $72,000 for UN Women and HeForShe.
• Net-Zero Commitment — Dedicated to achieving net-zero value chain emissions by no later than 2030 alongside more than 1,000 businesses that are working with the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to reduce their emissions in line with climate science.
• Water Restoration — Combined BMC-sponsored efforts with TeamSeas and Seabin™ to remove over 15,000 pounds of debris and microplastics from our oceans, including 81,124 plastic items.

BMC continues to make strides to enhance the employee experience through initiatives such as Fair Pay Workplace certification, being a member of the UN Global Compact, achieving an EcoVadis Gold Rating, and receiving consistently high employee engagement scores. In addition, BMC has recently been named a winner of a Gold Stevie® Award for the Human Resources Department of the Year from the Annual American Business Awards. The company was also recognized in YourCause by Blackbaud’s CSR Industry Review, which featured BMC’s CSR programme and noted a 95% employee engagement rating on the platform.
