Our Sustainability Program
We operate our facilities so as to minimize our environmental impact. We have a low carbon footprint as a software-as-a-service company, and we further reduce our footprint by tailoring our operations towards sustainability. For example, we lessen the environmental burden of commuting by offering employees the option to work remotely and by supporting remote workers through technology and tools that enable virtual communication and collaboration. We provide all employees with a meaningful stipend to encourage them to create comfortable, inviting, and productive workspaces within their homes.
When choosing office locations, we select spaces in green buildings that emphasize energy efficiency with practices like making use of natural light, integrating features to reduce water usage, and offering bike racks to encourage emission-free commuting. Wherever possible, we situate our offices in areas that are easily accessible by public transportation, and, in the United States, we offer employees the option of purchasing their public transportation access cards through Brightcove in a tax-advantaged manner. We provide reusable dishes and utensils in our kitchens and station recycling bins throughout our offices. In addition, we take a sustainable approach to disposing of hardware. We have donated laptops to local organizations and to employees in need of devices for homeschooling during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we engage electronic waste management companies with ambitious, award-winning environmental practices.
