COSTA MESA, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian®, the global information services company, today announced the release of its 2010 corporate responsibility report. Despite the economic challenges still facing many of the countries in which Experian operates, employees raised nearly $700,000 for charitable organizations this past fiscal year. However, community involvement is only one piece of the puzzle. Entitled Supporting our strategy for growth, the report focuses on global accomplishments within six key responsibilities: data, products and services, consumers, environmental impact, community involvement and being a good employer.

"At Experian, we've become known for the insight we provide through our data and analytics," said Don Robert, chief executive officer, Experian. "By taking a look at our wider responsibilities in society, we can bring these skills and experience to a much broader audience — and we make ourselves a more sustainable company as a result. This is what we mean by taking our corporate responsibilities seriously and doing it right."

Featuring in-depth case studies and regional accounts, Experian's 2010 report highlights successes from around the globe:

  • Delivering effective education and employer partnerships through a newly created, government-backed initiative, the Education and Employers Taskforce
