RTI's Corporate Citizenship Commitment

Corporate Citizenship

Living Our Mission

We take a grassroots approach to philanthropy; our charitable giving is driven by our employees via programmatic nomination. We support organizations who provide direct services to people in need in the communities where we live and work. When disaster strikes, even if it’s far from our headquarters, our staff members routinely open their hearts and pocketbooks to support Red Cross relief drives.

RTI is a proud supporter of United Way of the Greater Triangle as well as United Way agencies serving each of our U.S. regional office locations. Our efforts over the years have earned us multiple awards, including the United Way Spirit of North Carolina Award and the United Way of the Greater Triangle Chairman’s Award for Employee Education and Volunteerism. We’re also a longstanding sponsor of North Carolina’s public television station.

RTI was honored to serve as the presenting sponsor of the 2024 North Carolina Science Festival, inspiring the next generation of scientists in our community and advancing the progress of North Carolina.

Sustainability across the globe and on campus

At RTI, our work supports all 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are shown below and are included in our 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance Report. 

In addition, here at home, we are fully committed to making our campus as environmentally friendly as possible. As a science-based organization, we see ourselves as being uniquely positioned to lead the way in making our world be more environmentally, socially, and ethically responsible.

To fully understand the entire scope of what we’re doing to support all facets of ESG, we encourage you to read our report.
