- Social Responsibility
It’s the universal language. It inspires us, moves us, thrills us, heals us and ultimately unites us all. As the world’s leading music company, it’s our responsibility to nurture music, and to foster artistry and self-expression. In a world that desperately needs to find more common ground, there is no better way to provide it, than through music.
Using the collective power of our passionate community of music lovers – ranging from employees to artists to fans – we support and partner with organizations around the globe that are working towards meaningful positive change and social responsibility.
In Australia we support a variety of charities and organizations, including the ones below. If you would like to learn more about the organizations Universal Music Group supports around the world please visit our global corporate site.
