IBM Australia Client Charter

IBM Australia Client Charter

We make significant investment in research and innovation to bring the latest technology to our clients.

Globally, IBM spends more on research and generates more patents than any other IT company. We resource a wide range of scientific disciplines, award-winning researchers and global technical labs – giving you early access to innovations that help create competitive advantage.

We also work with the medical and academic communities on global health issues. For example, IBM collaborates with the Mayo Clinic, which uses our Blue Gene supercomputer to advance its work in molecular modelling for disease research. Also, our global Life Sciences Institute of Innovation program puts our resources into academic institutions that are making outstanding contributions to life sciences research.

In Australia, our Centre for Advanced Studies invests over $40 million in national research each year, creating research links between IBM, Australian universities, Australian Governments and the network of IBM Research Laboratories around the world. In addition, the Centre operates the IBM Australia PhD Program which provides Australian-based researchers with access to IBM's worldwide research resources, helping to support Australia to remain at the forefront of information, communication and technology innovation.

We manufacture products that are efficient in their use of energy, protective of the environment, and able to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely.

As a global company IBM is committed to environmental leadership in all our business activities – from our operations to the design of our products and the use of our technology.

We have had a corporate policy on environmental affairs since 1971. We expect every employee and every contractor on IBM premises to follow this policy and to report any environmental, health, or safety concern to IBM management, who are required to take prompt action.

Every year, we monitor, control and report our local environmental impact. Recent notable improvements were:
