About Our Reporting
Our reporting process is evolving along with our approach to corporate responsibility.
Corporate responsibility reporting at Leidos chronicles our progress toward improving the company's sustainability. This website, and our associated Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Index, discusses how we balance efforts to support our people, enrich the communities where we live and work, and our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our operations. We also highlight ethics, governance, and other related program areas that form the bedrock of our philosophy about corporate responsibility.
We publish reports annually in accordance with the latest GRI G4 Reporting Guidelines (Core Option). The G4 guidelines eliminate scoring and emphasize materiality. This year's report is our sixth, covering calendar year 2014, and marks our first, full-year report post-separation (In September, 2013, SAIC, Inc. separated into two independent, publicly-traded companies: New SAIC and Leidos). This report also aligns with and references our fiscal year Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The GRI is a third-party organization developing the world's most widely-used sustainability reporting framework. To ensure the highest degree of technical quality, credibility, and relevance, the framework is maintained through consensus-seeking participants drawn globally from business, civil society, labor, and professional institutions.
Leidos defines report content by balancing our interest in providing the most comprehensive and transparent representation of the company's sustainability profile with the availability of data and resources. We strive to provide a robust report that addresses the interests of our stakeholders while aligning with the most relevant and significant indicators of our economic, environmental, and social performance.
The CR Report is generated by a core group of individuals representing the Leidos Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability functions and a network of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) throughout the company. To identify aspects for inclusion in the report, we reviewed the full list of GRI G4 aspects and determined which were material to Leidos and its stakeholders. We consulted with company SMEs to verify the significance of aspects and their boundaries. Aspect boundaries are discussed in each General Disclosure on Management Approach (DMAs) by aspect, but are generally limited to the stakeholders that are directly impacted or influenced by the aspect in question. Aspects judged to be material are the ones ultimately included in this report.
We engage with our employees, communities, clients, industry teammates, government leadership and corporate responsibility thought leaders based on shared values. Our goal is to establish and nurture effective and productive relationships that align with our mission and values.
