COPPELL, Texas, Sept. 28, 2022 – Vari, the innovative workspace solutions company formerly known as VariDesk, has formalized its ongoing commitment to doing what’s right for its fans, employees and the planet with the creation of an environmental, social and governance (ESG) program.
Creating a formal commitment to an ESG program will enable the company to ensure that intentional, measurable progress is made toward its goals. Founded in spring 2022, Vari’s inaugural ESG Committee is charged with identifying ambitious and achievable improvement benchmarks to challenge the company and drive change that is good for all.
Leaders from key areas across the company with diverse roles and backgrounds will come together to drive the ESG Committee. These members share a passion for aligning Vari’s goals with a commitment to create a positive global impact.
To focus on this strategy, Vari is evaluating processes for each of the ESG pillars. This evaluation includes seeking suppliers that aim to reduce emissions during manufacturing (environmental), continuing to promote pay equality (social), establishing company-wide ethics training (governance) and much more.
“Creating a dedicated focus is the best way to drive movement and progress. This is precisely why we formed the ESG Committee and why, moving forward, we will start issuing regular ESG reports,” said Vari CEO, Jason McCann. “This new initiative will create intentional focus and tangible goals. As we continue to evolve and grow, we know that we are doing what's right for our business, our fans and our employees.”
A workspace innovation company, Vari helps growing organizations unlock the potential of their space and their people. From a collection of office furniture to workspaces offering space-as-a-service, the company makes it easy for high-growth businesses to scale and flex their office space. Organizations all over the world — including over 98% of the Fortune 500 — use Vari products, which are tested and certified to the highest industry standards.
