We believe social, environmental, and corporate responsibility are all connected

Mobility. Mapping the road ahead. Creating unique, moving experiences. That’s Cerence. Building a sustainable, inclusive, and ethical world - that’s Cerence, too. Soon after Cerence’s start in 2019, the Cerence Board and executive leaders developed a strategy to assess and implement policies and practices related to corporate governance, ethics, sustainability, data privacy and security, human rights, supply chain, and transparency. At Cerence, we believe we have a responsibility to make our operations more efficient and sustainable, to advance diversity and inclusion, and to deliver trustworthy technology. These values form the foundation for meaningful environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices at Cerence.

Our commitment to ESG is embedded throughout the company, from our Board of Directors and senior leadership to our employees, and through our supply chain. We are taking actions that honor these values - our affinity groups reflect our interests and our diversity; our waste management practices reduce harmful waste; our employees can volunteer their time to help organizations close to their hearts through our volunteer program. We recognize that implementing corporate responsibility within Cerence will require us to continually assess, learn, and improve our progress. In the documents below, we expand on Cerence’s approach to ESG and the current initiatives and policies we have developed and implemented in support of that strategy.
