Ethical, Environmentally Sustainable, Socially Responsible

CSR Strategy

To achieve our vision, Keysight’s business and corporate social responsibility efforts are synergistic — positively impacting the global community through our solutions and services, as well as CSR program. As a result, our CSR strategy is driven by material aspects identified by our key stakeholders, maps to business commitments, and measures progress through a set of key impact goals that ensure the company and planet thrive.


Keysight conducted a CSR materiality assessment in fiscal year 2015, the company’s first operational year. The assessment helped Keysight identify and understand environmental and social risks, key stakeholder expectations, as well as strategic opportunities for the business. As part of the materiality assessment, we contracted with a third-party specialist to conduct:

  • Peer analyses of five similar companies to understand where Keysight stands globally in its CSR efforts
  • Internal functional and executive stakeholder interviews across global business functions, including investor relations, order fulfillment, global sales, corporate services, human resources, workplace solutions, product innovation and quality, and business industry groups
  • External stakeholder interviews representing customers, investors, industry associations, academics and non-governmental organizations to identify common themes in priorities and potential performance improvement trends in corporate citizenship

Following this work, a cross-functional Keysight team reviewed and finalized the list of material social responsibility aspects shown below. These material aspects are mapped to material topics defined in our Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) data. To maintain alignment, we regularly engage with critical stakeholders to ensure they are informed about the business sustainability efforts, and to understand their expectations and perspectives of the company in this space. This ongoing stakeholder engagement is accomplished through consultation, surveys, ad-hoc feedback and reviews. Subsequent formal materiality reassessments will be planned as business conditions warrant.
