Corporate social responsibility and sustainability are part of what defines us as a company. We are committed to help make the world a better place.
Our CSR program: ALE Impact
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise takes pride in its commitment to compliance and consistent operations within the principles of the law, as well as adhering to the strictest standards for global environmental protection.
In past years, we launched several initiatives in different parts of the world to benefit local communities. In 2018, we decided to leverage ALE’s strengths to enrich our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities under a single umbrella: The ALE Impact program.
Our fundraising program is employee-led, voluntary and strongly supported by our executive management team. It is grounded in our code of conduct which is the cornerstone of ALE’s business ethics, integrity and compliance commitment, and in the understanding, that to meet our strategic corporate objectives we also need to enhance and serve the communities where employees, partners and customers live and work.

We strengthen our impact through focused global projects that allow us to deploy our core strengths and contribute to a humanitarian cause. Projects are reviewed and selected using these criteria:
- Supports a non-governmental organization (NGO, non-profit, voluntary citizens' group)
- Matches our vertical and/or cloud focus
- Requires communications and/or networks to meet their own NGO’s objectives
- Vetted by the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise legal team
Mercy Ships Overview
Mercy Ships, an international charity that operates the largest non-governmental hospital ships in the world, have helped developing nations since 1978. They work with host nations to improve the local healthcare delivery system while serving the surgical needs of the host country and provide a variety of training opportunities for medical professionals.
Mercy Ships is an organization that aligns with ALE’s core expertise: hospitality, healthcare, transportation and education. Communications and networks are key factors for Mercy Ships to deliver their programs and provide the highest level of care to each of their patients and meet the needs of their students while on the ship. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise products are already on board.
Currently we are raising funds for Mercy Ships to upgrade their International Support Centre (ISC), deploy professional services and ALE solutions to equip their ships with communications equipment that allow them to provide the highest level of care to those they serve.
We are committed to protecting the environment and operating to reduce our impact on the planet. ALE designs products that respect local, national, and international environmental legislation, tracks hazardous substances and eliminates banned substances from our products. The ALE Environmental Policy outlines the steps taken to achieve these goals.
We also comply with latest regulations and standards to keep your data, networks and information secure, while keeping our environment-friendly work practices. See more on ALE Standards & Regulatory Compliance
