Social impact

Learning empowers people and enriches lives. It defines our company purpose and is itself a social purpose. Acting responsibly is central to our business strategy and how we deliver is as important as what we achieve.

In 2014, we reviewed and redefined our social impact strategy. We have identified three organising ideas that structure our reporting – impact, sustainable standards and innovation.

  • On impact, we plan to make a significant contribution through campaigning and programme activity with a particular focus on literacy.
  • Our standards work sees us continue to invest in our people and to work hard to reduce our environmental footprint.
  • Our innovation agenda involves collaboration and partnership to help find new solutions to some of the biggest unmet educational needs.
