Corporate Social Responsibility

TPPL is powering equitable access to economic opportunity, education and employment, and the circular economy.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Global developments, such as climate change, poverty, and increasing inequality, are serious issues that all stakeholders in the worldwide economy must face. At TPPL, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is part of our holistic sustainability framework. We put its purpose into action by helping the world run better and improving people’s lives with sustainability at the core. The TPPL Corporate Social Responsibility (TPPL CSR) team focuses on three pillars: accelerating social business, building future skills, and collaborating for sustainability.
