Social Value and Sustainability

Leaving a positive legacy depends on the decisions we make today.

At Sopra Steria, we believe the world is how we shape it. It’s defined by who we are, what we do, and the difference we make.

Our business is, first and foremost, about people. Our services only matter if they work for people, our planet and, for us, if they make a difference and serve a greater purpose too.

That’s why we’re passionate about delivering sustainable growth and services that drive positive change in business and society. It’s about shaping our world for the better for our current and future generations.

What social value means to us

Delivering social value - even before it became a well-known term - has always been a large part of our DNA. We conduct business with our values and ethics at the heart of everything we do; particularly as technology becomes increasingly embedded into everyday life.

We work with our customers to question why we are doing something, and if it will improve the lives of those we touch, be it our employees, clients or citizens.

Whether it’s minimising our environmental impact, or focusing on education and employment opportunities, put simply, we’re committed to doing the right thing.

It starts with the people we work with every day, whether they work for Sopra Steria, a partner organisation, a client, or are a member of the public.
