2013 Corporate Responsibility Report Highlights Progress Toward Online Safety, Environmental Stewardship and Employee Engagement Goals

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Sept. 12, 2013 –Symantec Corp.’s 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report, released today, highlights the company’s progress toward integrating responsible social and business practices that directly support its global competitiveness. The report complements a year in which Symantec posted its strongest growth results in five years.

With information security and online safety central to its business and CR commitments, Symantec continued to focus on making the world a safer place, particularly for youth. Symantec also showed momentum in creating career opportunities for women in the company and technology field, and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts.

“We recognize that our business practices have a direct impact on society,” said Steve Bennett, president and CEO, Symantec. “We have enormous potential to achieve great things – with our business and with our clear and public commitment to corporate responsibility. We’ll continue to redefine our business to ensure we’re the best choice for securing and managing our customers’ information, and we’ll do so in a way that enables us to best serve the world around us.”

Among its top accomplishments highlighted in the report, Symantec furthered its commitment to the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) and took steps to provide more professional development and training for women leaders in FY13. As part of its mission to keep the world’s people and information safe online, Symantec continued to support law enforcement and organizations around the world and release its annual Internet Security Threat Report. Symantec’s dedication to environmental stewardship resulted in more energy efficient facilities and an ongoing reduction in greenhouse gases.

“We challenge ourselves to continuously improve our performance and refine our corporate responsibility strategy to align with our core business strengths, allowing us to make an even greater positive social impact,” said Cecily Joseph, senior director of corporate responsibility at Symantec.
