When I started Zscaler 15 years ago, it was founded on the vision to create a world where the exchange of information is completely seamless and secure. I set out to create an iconic company that would become a leader in its category. As part of this quest, sustainability and reducing the environmental impact has always been a part of the equation and a top consideration. I firmly believe that Zscaler is in a position to deliver immense value to society by not only protecting our customers' data and making access to the internet safer, but also by making the world a better place. I am inspired by the value we deliver every day when I meet with customers, partners, investors, and employees, which further reinforces our commitment to operate our business with honesty, integrity, and accountability.
Whether it be a contribution of technology, time, funding, or expertise - we can each contribute to creating a sustainable future. I also believe that it’s within a leader’s charter to grow their business responsibly, ensuring the adherence to ethical practices and values. The importance of this commitment cannot be understated; today’s enterprises want to engage with vendors who share the same values as they do.
As Zscaler continues to grow, we are committed to doing so while taking our ESG priorities into account. As a critical partner to over 6,700 global organizations, we understand first-hand that being a strong partner means holding fast to sound business practices that cultivate trust and confidence. In an effort to foster accountability and support a shared responsibility model, I’m pleased to announce that Zscaler has published its 2022 ESG Report, which details programs across the company’s global operations that impact the following areas:
Environment: Efficiency has always been at the heart of our business; it’s one of the inherent benefits of the cloud-native Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange. Powered by 100% renewable energy, the Zero Trust Exchange eliminates the need for expensive and inefficient legacy architecture. In 2022, we achieved carbon neutrality for relevant greenhouse gas emissions categories, and we have set our ambitions to further reduce our impacts on the environment through a goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2025.
Social: We are passionate about making the internet a safe place because digital security is the foundation for a more inclusive, connected, and empowered society. In parallel, our greatest asset is our people. We have grown our global team while maintaining a culture that has contributed to our success and our giving-back program supports community engagement efforts that are meaningful to our employees.
Governance: We have built effective governance structures, management, and ethical business practices to create the foundation for trust and foster a culture of integrity, excellence, and innovation. Our customers rely on us to protect their business - a responsibility we take very seriously - and they need to know that we have the processes, certifications, frameworks, and accountability structures in place to deliver that level of security.
