Our social responsibility principles inform the way we work. CTG is committed to the highest standards in our labor practices, the health and safety of our employees, and business ethics.
CTG has business operations in North America, Western Europe, and India, all regions with strict labor laws regarding human rights. We have internal policies intended to ensure our compliance with these laws, and we will not knowingly conduct business with anyone who violates these laws or basic human rights. We are committed to adhering to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), local labor laws, and prevailing wage rates. CTG prohibits any form of workplace or sexual harassment, and all employees are required to work in a manner that prevents harassment in the workplace. This policy is one component of CTG’s commitment to a discrimination-free work environment.
None of CTG’s owned or leased office spaces are subject to industrial hazards and all adhere to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) office standards. We will not knowingly transact business with, or place our team members at, companies that do not enforce appropriate workplace safety and health standards.
Our Code of Business Conduct serves as our baseline for business ethics, and all employees are required to adhere to these guidelines. We’re committed to providing clients with high-quality services that conform to mutually agreed-upon requirements and maintain certifications that support our Quality Charter, including 9001:2015 certification for our European operations.
CTG Luxembourg PSF holds the “Entreprise Socialement Responsable” (Socially Responsible Enterprise) label that is awarded by the INDR Luxembourg (Institut National pour le Développement Durable et la Responsabilité Sociale des Entreprises), an organization that aims to promote responsible business practices in Luxembourg.
Our whistleblower hotline ensures that there is a confidential way to report any concerns with CTG business practices.

Sound environmental practices start with each of us.
CTG maintains a relatively small footprint. As a professional services provider, much of our focus is on the individual behavior of our team members and the decisions we make in managing our office spaces. Our environmental strategy has three areas of focus:
Many of our improvements come from our employee's environmentally conscious efforts. CTG supports these efforts by:
- Maintaining policies and initiatives to reduce our footprint and tracking results
- Providing flexible and remote-working opportunities to reduce emissions
- Supporting environment-focused programs, such as Earth Day
- Raising awareness of environmentally sound practices through policy manuals, in-house publications, and websites
Corporate Contracts and Purchasing
CTG is committed to doing business with companies that share our environmental concern. Examples include purchasing environmentally-friendly products and prioritizing property management companies and office spaces that utilize environmentally friendly materials, policies, and services.
We’re conscious of our impact on the communities our teams call home. Over the years, we’ve made significant improvements that support reducing the footprint of our North American corporate headquarters, located in Buffalo, New York. In all locations, we are committed to ensuring that none of our outdated computer systems and electronics end up in landfills and that our office waste be disposed of through local energy-from-waste programs.
