Overview

Pearson Education id dedicated to being a socially responsible company that has a positive impact on society-both in this country and throughout the world. Here are some ways Pearson Education is making a difference:

our environment

We were the first global publishing company to publicly disclose our policy with regard to the environmental characteristics of the paper we purchase.

We expect to be a climate-neutral company by the end of 2009. Our current reuse/recycle rate for unsold books is 99%.

We're investing in ways to deliver our content digitally to students and instructors to reduce costs and environmental impact.

our community

We offer a paid summer internship program that gives students an insider's view of the publishing process. We also invite college graduates who are passionate about education to begin their careers with us in any of our locations around the world.

The Pearson Choices program allows faculty and students to choose from a range of texts and media formats that meet their teaching, learning, and budget needs.

The Pearson Student Advisory Board brings college students together with the company's leadership working to shape our publishing future.

our people

We were named one of the "2008 World's Most Ethical Companies" by Ethisphere� magazine, one of the "Top 100 Companies for Working Mothers" by Working Mother magazine, and a media sector global leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

We offer a 100% tuition reimbursement plan for employees seeking an advanced degree in any job-related educational program; we also offer numerous professional development opportunities for employees to develop their skills.

Volunteers fromPearson companies across the U.S., Africa, and Latin America participate in Jumpstart's Read for the Record annual campaign to bring attention to the importance of early education.
