Our core philosophy at Experian is that diversity of thought and inclusion is essential to our brand purpose of creating a better tomorrow together. It's what we call Uniquely Experian. We are building a culture where every voice counts, everyone is heard, and where we actively seek out alternate perspectives.
Experian employees have volunteered over 50,000 hours to support our communities. Year over year we've been reducing our carbon footprint, and in 2019 26% of our electricity came from low-carbon and renewable sources. We believe steps like these are fundamental to creating a better tomorrow.
Our social innovation products have reached 20 million people since 2013, allowing for billions of credit opportunities in emerging markets, global financial education and financial inclusion for the unbanked. In the U.S. , Experian Boost is enabling US consumers to instantly improve their credit scores, potentially helping over 100 million people.
Our ERGs are company-supported networks set up and run by employees, for employees. These locally based groups are not only building and celebrating identity within Experian, but also furthering our continual focus on seeking to understand each other's diverse experiences.
Real employees, real stories.
