Globant announced this Friday it had reached carbon neutrality. The milestone comes as a new step in its broader strategy to reduce its carbon footprint and advance a carbon-free economy.
Firstly, Globant is a digitally native company. It focuses on reinventing business through innovative technology solutions. It has more than 20,000 employees working alongside Rockwell Automation, Google, Electronic Arts, and others.
Moreover, the company launched its sustainability strategy back in 2020, when it moved to 100% renewable electricity buying renewable energy certificates that ensured the use of renewable sources in all its operations.
Thereafter, in 2021, Globant signed the Science-Based Targets (SBT) Business Ambition for 1.5°C commitment letter; consequently, joining the race to a net-zero carbon economy. After signing the deals, the company committed to taking strict and immediate action on the company’s business-related emissions.
In fact, the company started to work on a global decarbonization action plan, as it has offices in 18 countries. Reducing its energy consumption, ensuring the provision of renewable sources of electricity, and greening the commuting of its customers were some of the initiatives.
