Concur’s commitment to corporate social responsibility
Concur believes that every business has a responsibility to give back to the communities they serve in order to make the world a better place to live. To underscore our own commitment to good corporate citizenship, Concur has established Concur Cares, a corporate social responsibility program. Concur Cares comprises initiatives such as support of many non-profit organizations through volunteer hours, grant funding and investment in technology. It’s a company-wide, year-round commitment, also demonstrated through how we conduct ourselves and our business, every day.
A commitment to our local communities
At Concur, it is our employees who make a difference to our business and our customers—and we support their passion to make a difference in our community. Concur provides employees with paid volunteer hours each year so they can dedicate time (outside of office hours) to a certified non-profit organization of their choice. Together, we make great things happen.
A commitment in action
Each year, TripIt adopts the wish of a seriously-ill child through Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, making their dream trip a reality. TripIt users can donate their frequent flier miles to Make-A-Wish Foundation to send seriously-ill children on their wish trips. In 2014, TripIt adopted Mackenna’s wish and sent her and her family to Australia to meet her bone marrow donor after a long battle with leukemia.

Environmentally friendly products and services
Concur’s on-demand employee spend management services already deliver many environmental benefits. For example, leveraging electronic data capture (including imaging and exclusive e-receipt technology) enables employees to submit paperless travel and expense reports. These features help reduce excessive paper usage while driving down costs and streamlining the travel and expense management process. Concur has also developed carbon-friendly enhancements to Concur® Travel & Expense – the company’s flagship service that enables companies to manage their entire business travel and expense reporting process. Features include options that enable employees to book business travel based on estimated carbon emissions. They can also select low or zero-emission car rental reservations and book specific hotels based on environmentally-sustainable practices—all within boundaries set by corporate policies and preferences.
Sustainable business practices
Concur believes that to continue to make a difference, investments in key technology and partnerships are key. However, we must also lead by example and adopt best practices that help our company better manage the impact we have on the environment. Ongoing efforts include the occupancy of LEED certified buildings (some areas), energy management systems, comprehensive recycling programs and the availability of travel and commuter options around the world.
