Corporate Social Responsibility

Creating sustainable value

For us, corporate social responsibility means showing conscious respect for responsible and sustainable action. For that reason, we embrace values such as trust and respect, openness and transparency above all else. For years, these principles have been used in our customer relationships, our technologies, our partnerships, employee training and decisions on investments in our company—to the benefit of our shareholders and society as a whole.

Sustainability and responsible action are guiding principles for Software AG

We are certain that moral principles and economic success not only go together, they belong together. Out of respect for future generations, it is important to us to conserve resources in order to achieve sustainable economic, ecological and social progress.

For us, behaving responsibly means that we:

  • Help our customers around the world achieve long-term success
  • Continuously improve our standards
  • Are a long-term partner—and therefore a reliable partner
  • Enable employees to grow along with the company
  • Add value to society
  • Observe the highest social standards in our daily activities
  • Promote education and innovation—at our locations and all over the world


for our stakeholders

Social values also shape our international business activities.We introduced our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics back in 2011. These guidelines ensure good and responsible corporate governance and establish a framework for what Software AG considers to be ethically correct conduct in its day-to-day business and relationships with all of its stakeholders and their different cultures. The Code of Conduct is mandatory for all Software AG employees.
