What do we mean by a responsible business?

At Avanade we’re committed to being responsible in everything we do, from our purpose – to make a genuine human impact – to forward-looking leadership and sustainability. Being a responsible business isn’t new to Avanade. As a leading digital innovator, we’ve long understood the power of people and technology to change things for the better.

Built on a culture of transparency, ethics, integrity, equality and inclusion, we strive to make a positive impact on the world in lockstep with our ecosystem partners. This guides the way we engage our people, our clients and our community.

Employee volunteering
When the COVID-19 crisis hit, Avanade employees answered the call to volunteer, recording more than 15,000 hours helping families, neighbors, businesses and community organisations.

Energy-neutral homes
When TBI wanted to create the future with infrastructure for energy-neutral homes, it turned to Microsoft and Avanade.

Connecting care teams
When the NHS was struggling to keep its care teams connected from remote locations, we helped rapidly implement Microsoft Teams for 1.2 million users.

Tech for online learning
And when children in underserved communities needed technology for online learning, we partnered with nonprofit InterConnection to donate refurbished laptops.
