Doing our part for a more sustainable planet
As of fiscal year 2023, we achieved carbon neutrality and 100% renewable electricity in our offices, using a combination of bundled and unbundled renewable energy certificates (RECs). We continue to conduct an annual greenhouse gas inventory and report year-over-year carbon emissions data. Our carbon-neutral boundary includes our direct emissions for Scope 1 as well as certain indirect emissions for Scope 3, namely business travel, employee commuting, and outsourced data centers.
As a software company, our direct emissions are relatively low (Scope 1 and 2), and our largest source of indirect emissions is our supply chain (Scope 3). As such, we have committed to engaging with our supply chain on climate change and diversity. Asana recently adopted a supplier code of conduct (which includes our expectations on environmental and social practices), and have begun partnering with key suppliers in an effort to reduce emissions originating within our supply chain.
