Climate change threatens people, ecosystems, and communities around the world. We’re doing our part to help stop it.

We commit to

Measuring (and sharing) our footprint meticulously and comprehensively every quarter

Neutralizing our emissions by funding projects that avoid and remove carbon

Taking the highest leverage steps to reduce our emissions

The science of the climate crisis

Greenhouse gas emissions—from energy production, transportation, industry, agriculture, and nearly every economic activity—are rapidly warming the planet. Millions are already suffering.

The science of the climate crisis

If we continue with business as usual, temperatures will rise 3°C by 2100, leading to food and water scarcity for hundreds of millions of people, devastating extreme weather events, and the decimation of ecosystems.

Cutting down emissions at Segment

To avert catastrophic change, scientists tell us we need to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030. This is possible, but only if we decarbonize every sector of the economy rapidly. At Segment we're doing our part to make this happen faster.

Segment has been carbon neutral since the beginning (2011)

2011: Segment is founded

We've funded projects to be carbon neutral since the beginning

2019 footprint was 7,919 tCO2e total

Equivalent to the electricity consumption of 1,341 houses for a year

2019 emissions reduction from 2018

↓26% per employee

2020 emissions target

↓20% per employee

We’re taking action to reduce our carbon footprint ASAP

With the goal of cutting carbon per employee by 20% in 2020. Here’s how we’ll get there:

We’ve re-engineered Segment to use cloud infrastructure as efficiently as possible. We estimate this work will prevent 2,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions in 2020—and it’s saving us more than five million dollars per year.

We’re purchasing enough renewable energy to cover electricity consumption at Segment’s offices and in the home offices of our employees.

Illustration: Suppliers


The products and services we buy as a business—from laptops to Google ads—make up nearly half of our carbon footprint. We’re reducing our purchases in carbon-intensive categories and prioritizing suppliers who’re cutting their own footprint.

As we all work from home as a result of COVID-19, emissions that would happen at the office now happen at home. We’re exploring ways to minimize this impact.

We fund a portfolio of projects that prevent emissions equal to our current footprint

We do constant research to stay up-to-date on the highest impact projects, and you can read our methodology here. We are currently funding the following portfolio:

Deforestation prevention

We are funding a project that preserves 98,000 hectares of rainforest in Peru.

Refrigerant destruction

We have funded the collection and destruction of Montreal Protocol banned refrigerants.

Nitrous oxide destruction

We have funded the capture and destruction of N₂O at a Mississippi industrial facility.

We work with Watershed to measure, reduce, and report our carbon emissions.
