Social impact might be measured with data, but it’s felt through stories

At Adobe, we help customers turn ideas into meaningful results, and our social purpose is aligned with that mission. Since our inception, we have felt a social responsibility to serve our employees, customers, partners and communities.  Today, I’m excited to unveil our new presence on that reflects how our Corporate Responsibility investments uniquely fulfill this commitment.

Education: Our future is dependent on the success of the next generation’s ability to innovate, grow our economies, and improve our trajectory. With those goals in mind we contribute financial and people resources to bring equal opportunities to youth around the world who want become digital media makers or computer scientists.

Sustainability: It is woven into our culture, so we continue to find new ways to conserve natural resources in everything we do. As a result, we’ve seen big benefits for our business, our customers, our employees, and our communities. For example, we are proud to exemplify how we help our customers be more sustainable through the launch of Document Cloud.

Community: We believe that our employees and nonprofit partners have the best ideas for solving social problems. That is why we fund what they feel would create positive change in their local communities.

We invite you to learn more about our social purpose — what motivates us to create positive change. While we’ve been honored with many industry accolades, what continues to drive us are the youth, organizations and employees who are impacted by our efforts.

We are proud to share a few of their stories, and hope you find them as inspiring as we do.
