In the late ‘90s, multinational corporations began embracing community-driven initiatives, spanning philanthropy, recycling and education to amplify their social and environmental responsibility. Despite commendable efforts, the ever-evolving landscape often presents environmental challenges, financial complexities and social issues, underscoring the pressing need for companies, organizations and authoritative entities to assume greater responsibility. In today's interconnected world, where there is a growing awareness among individuals, ProgressSoft acknowledges its critical role and reaffirms its steadfast commitment to catalyzing meaningful impact for a better tomorrow.

In this article, we dive into ProgressSoft's approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), highlighting the impact we have had on various facets ranging from the environment to philanthropy, education and governance. Through showcasing our contributions and enduring commitment, we emphasize the significance of ESG practices in driving positive change within our company and the communities we serve.

Defining Our Approach to ESG Practices

ESG practices encompass a comprehensive framework for evaluating a company's impact on society and the environment, as well as its governance structure. To maximize impact, companies tailor their ESG practices by considering their scope of work, industry and the current needs and demands of individuals and global organizations.

At ProgressSoft, we recognize the significance of ESG considerations in shaping corporate behavior and fostering sustainable business practices across industries. For us, ESG goes beyond meeting standards; it's about actively contributing to a better world by minimizing our environmental footprint and fostering community well-being. We firmly believe in the collective power of these efforts, recognizing that each step forward can generate a ripple effect of positive change.

The ProgressSoft Impact

ProgressSoft's impact continues through our ongoing efforts to refine our approach. Below, we highlight the areas where our impact has been most profound:

  1. Driving Digital Sustainability

As a pioneering force in the IT industry, we envision a digitally driven world that transcends traditional paper and plastic usage. Our operations inherently align with this vision, reflecting our steady commitment to embracing sustainable practices. We believe that our ongoing mission of technological innovation serves as a powerful catalyst for eco-friendliness. This commitment goes beyond our organizational boundaries, leaving a lasting impact not only on our operations but also on the clients we serve in the financial industry.

A tangible manifestation of this commitment is our Mobile Electronic Check Issuance solution. This cutting-edge solution not only streamlines the processes of sending, depositing and receiving checks with a simple click but also eliminates the need for paper entirely. The positive environmental effect is immediate and significant, putting an end to paper consumption once our solution is deployed.

Through our innovations, we aspire to lead the way in fostering a sustainable future, making a meaningful difference in the realms of technology and sustainability.

  1. Bridging Gaps through Education

ProgressSoft actively fosters educational opportunities through strategic partnerships and programs with schools, universities and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) for programming and IT skills. For instance, we equip educational institutions with advanced computer labs, empowering IT students and creating an optimal learning environment. Additionally, we collaborate with universities to enhance their IT curriculum, bridging the gap between academia and professional practice. In line with our commitment to advancing education, we conduct sessions and workshops led by our experts. Our internship program offers students and trainees hands-on experience, enabling them to work on real-world projects alongside our team. Additionally, we offer opportunities for students to carry out their dissertations with our sponsorship. Through these initiatives, we aim to cultivate the next generation of leaders and innovators who will spearhead transformation in the digital era.

  1. Empowering Local Communities

A fundamental pillar of our ESG journey is our steadfast support for social initiatives dedicated to elevating communities and bridging socio-economic disparities. We continuously partake in programs designed to shed light on pressing global issues through active participation including health programs addressing critical concerns such as Cancer, Diabetes, Cholesterol, COVID-19 and blood donations.

Furthermore, we have established a meaningful partnership with the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship (MoDEE) to spearhead effective charity events. These initiatives encompass programs conducted during winter and Ramadan, where we distribute essential packages and provide monetary aid to families in need across Jordan. In addition, we participate in heartwarming Iftar events, organized by MoDEE, during the month of Ramadan for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, ensuring these occasions are not only supportive but also joyous, featuring engaging games and entertainment.

  1. Leading the Way in Governance

ProgressSoft's dedication to governance is evident in our recent achievement of obtaining the ISO/IEC 27001:2022 certificate from MQA. This certification ensures that our clients benefit from enhanced security measures and improved data protection, thus increasing their trust in our solutions. Through meticulous adherence to compliance policies, rigorous code review processes and robust change management frameworks, we uphold the highest standards of governance throughout our software development lifecycle. Our implementation of risk management frameworks, stringent information security governance and comprehensive business continuity planning ensures the integrity and resilience of our solutions. We prioritize transparency, accountability and alignment with organizational objectives, reinforcing our ongoing commitment to upholding high standards of governance within the financial technology sector.

In our pursuit of sustainability and community impact, collaboration is essential. We take pride in partnering with esteemed organizations who share our vision of a better tomorrow.
