Driving a Culture of Responsibility

NortonLifeLock releases 2022 Environmental, Social, and Governance Report


NortonLifeLock is driven to create authentic and tangible impact in our workplace, communities, and world. We are proud to share our progress in our 2022 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report, released today. 

Our Corporate Responsibility mission brings together our team, expertise, and technology to build a safe, inclusive, and sustainable future. Together with our stakeholders, including company leaders, employees, nonprofit partners, and others, we have created an ESG approach that is aligned with our business values, centered on action, adaptable, and forward-thinking.  

In FY22, we continued to further embed ESG into our company. We strengthened our approach by setting quantitative targets to improve performance; established an ESG working group to increase the involvement of senior leadership and our Board; and to be authentic and hold ourselves accountable for making meaningful progress towards our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) targets, we have made those targets part of our FY23 compensation program. 

Our signature Cyber Safety Education and Training programs and partnerships with nonprofits were expanded to increase our reach and impact. We also continued to progress in several priority areas, including DEI and environmental stewardship. Our latest report aligns with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) for the first time and includes additional ESG data. 


Here are some of the FY22 highlights featured in our report: 

  • $4.7M in charitable giving. NortonLifeLock’s culture of giving continues to create positive outcomes in communities around the world. Our community impact programs focus on philanthropy, product donations, and employee volunteering. As an example, we committed $1 million to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to grow Surf Smart 2.0, which teaches girls and young women to learn, have fun, and stay safe online.

  • More than 9,300 nonprofits received donated products to help keep their devices and data safe.

  • The percentage of U.S. employees that self-identified as having underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds also increased from 13% in FY21 to 17% in FY22. Women represent 33% of our global workforce, and in FY22, we committed $150,000 per year for the next two years to Women4Cyber, an organization that supports women in cybersecurity.  

  • We achieved a 39% Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions reduction between FY21 and FY22. Main contributors to this reduction include the transition to more efficient data centers and moving away from physical office space. We also purchased 27% of our electricity from renewable sources.  

  • 98% of our products were delivered digitally. We also completed our first product environmental lifecycle analysis (LCA). Incorporating LCAs into our approach will help us use data to make better decisions and help improve the sustainability of our product portfolio and supply chain. 


Through these real contributions to help protect our world and people's digital lives we are driving a culture of responsibility at NortonLifeLock that helps shape our brand and bring our vision to life.  

We invite you to read about these achievements and more in our 2022 Environmental, Social, and Governance Report.
