Protecting our planet

Building a better world together

Earth-friendly by nature

We harness our own cloud technology to operate sustainably and build a lasting future where we all thrive. Left unchecked, climate change disrupts the global economy, our company, and our stakeholders — so we take to heart our responsibility to protect the planet.

Doing our best work from anywhere

When it comes to saving on resources, we mean business. In the wake of COVID-19, we shifted to hybrid work without missing a beat. Cloud technology, coupled with a flexible, open culture and best-of-breed solutions, allows us to work sustainably while supporting customers when and how they need us most.

Keeping our workplace green

Sustainable offices

We go to great lengths to reduce our impact and promote sustainability. Our Redwood City, SF, NY, and Austin offices are LEED certified.

Team efforts across the globe

As part of our company values, employees are encouraged to “be an owner” inside and outside Box. Our Green Team, a group of cross-functional Boxers, organizes a range of environment-focused events throughout the year, including beach/community cleanups, tree planting, and companywide engagement as part of our Global Impact Day.

Environmental benefits of Box

We move organizations from legacy and paper-based processes to the cloud so customers work securely and efficiently from anywhere. This reduces both office waste and commuting while ensuring strong business continuity plans.
