At Aflac, we strive to improve in everything we do. Our commitment to corporate citizenship runs deep and starts from the top and extends throughout the workforce, making philanthropy and volunteerism a part of our corporate culture.
Aflac's philanthropic efforts can be seen in four areas: health, education, youth and the arts. Aflac is a vital part of the communities our team members call home and we care about the communities we live in and do business with.
Since 1995, Aflac has contributed more than $90 million for childhood cancer treatment and research.
Just as we strive to be good stewards of our business, we also strive to be good stewards of our planet.
Aflac’s Corporate Citizenship Report is published each year in April. This report covers the company’s actions and activities in the calendar year 2013. It highlights the accomplishments emanating primarily from our U.S. headquarters located in Columbus, Georgia. We also maintain offices in New York; Columbia, South Carolina; Omaha, Nebraska; and Japan and are consistently driving toward accepted best practices in those areas.
Our goal is to improve and enhance the company’s approach to sustainability efforts and reporting, with greater adherence to accepted business standards such as GRI reporting. To gather information for this report, the Aflac Corporate Social Responsibility Team, led by Corporate Communications, surveyed a diverse group of offices and individuals representing the company’s employee-led Green Team, Human Resources, IT, Procurement, Legal, the Diversity Council, Internal Communications, Investor Relations, Facilities Management and Aflac Japan.
As an eight-time recipient of Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies designation and a 16-time recipient of Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For award, Aflac believes that a key to our success is the spirit of trust that has been built over time. Within this report, we document our diverse workforce, our energy reduction efforts, our proven commitment to a great workplace and our predisposition to conducting business in an ethical fashion.
