ESG goals:
A shared commitment

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues are becoming increasingly important to businesses and investors alike. Ultima and Hitachi Vantara share a commitment to ESG principles and have several common goals in this area. Some of these goals include reducing carbon emissions, promoting sustainable business practices, fostering diversity and inclusion, protecting customer privacy, and ensuring ethical business practices. Both Ultima and Hitachi Vantara recognize that ESG issues are critical to the long-term success of businesses and are committed to upholding these principles in all aspects of their operations:

Ultima ESG goals
and progress

Our Corporate Carbon Footprint:
Ultima has halved the Scope 1 and 2 emissions since 2019—this is from activities such as heating and powering offices by renewable energy, energy monitoring due to sub-metering, and efficiency in transferring the majority of our on Prem services to Cloud.

Ultima is committed to a paperless office and in our warehouse, all packaging is recycled or reused.

Since 2019 we have halved our employee commuting impact and Ultima’s software services reduce the carbon impact for our customers by 50%

Diversity and Inclusion:
We believe that getting diversity right will pave the way for greater creativity and growth, and we set time-bound targets for the share of multiple representation in senior leadership roles. Our target is to reach a share of 30% women in senior leadership roles overall by the end of 2030, and a minimum of 40% across the business. We require diversity in all recruitments and promotions, in both the shortlisting and offer stages.

We pledge by 2030

  • To reduce our scope 1, 2, and 3 carbon emissions and to be aligned with net-zero ambitions
  • 70% of the Ultima Services to our customers will reduce their carbon impact in our scope 3 value chain.
  • We will support our customers to reduce the impact of emissions due to unavoidable business travel through a verified Carbon Offset provider
  • We will partner with our suppliers to provide energy-efficient products and source materials within a circular economy enabling our customers to meet their own net zero ambitions
