Be Kind to the Planet Commitments
At Globant, we embrace our responsibility to be a force for positive change. We believe in technology as an enabler to seek reinvention and make the world a better place.
Initiatives to fight climate change:
Carbon neutrality and reduction trajectories in line with the Science-Based Targets Initiative’s standards-aligned with Race to Zero Initiative
The Time is Now!
We dream of making the world a better place one step at a time.
This is Globant's purpose and we want to honor it by taking care of our common home. We are committed to limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. While we reduce our impact through Science-Based Targets we are going to support projects that restore our Earth.
Globant’s Net-Zero Roadmap started in 2020 when we moved to 100% renewable energy.
In 2021, we committed to the Science-Based Targets (SBT) Business Ambition for 1.5°C and we became carbon neutral. While we work on our global decarbonization action plan, we are going to compensate for all the remaining emissions by supporting projects that promote environmental wellbeing and revert climate change.
With the launch of the Sustainable Business Studio, we guide our clients in their transition to a low-carbon economy, transforming our company into a net-positive environmental agent.
We are Carbon Neutral!In 2021 we achieved Carbon Neutrality. While we follow our emissions reduction trajectories, we will persevere with our Carbon Neutrality pledge through carbon offsetting and renewable sources.
This project prevents deforestation, is owned by two Afro-descendant communities and started in 2013 on the Pacific coast of Colombia. The project exists in a place with heavy rainfall which creates a very unique ecosystem with rich flora and fauna.
This project prevents deforestation and protects biodiversity in 500,000 acres in the Peruvian Amazon, and has been running since 2010. Owned by over 300 small concessioner landowners who seek to refocus the local economy towards the passive harvest of Brazil nuts, it provides community members with sustainable income through carbon finance.
This initiative preserves a hemlock-spruce forest along a heavily forested section of Alaska's coastline. Owned by Kootznoowoo Incorporated, a Native-American timber company, the project area would otherwise be vulnerable to harvesting.
This initiative recycles PET packaging and manufactures new recycled plastic products. This process requires a considerably lower energy consumption than manufacturing the same products from virgin inputs, and we can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to this, the project contributes towards better working conditions and revenue distribution to improve local and regional economic development.
This project is installing wind power in the villages of the Mandsaur and Ratlam districts of Madhya Pradesh state, India. The purpose of the initiative is to generate electrical power for the local community using wind energy. This project also impacts the community with different economic, health, security and education initiatives.
Green Software: Our Path Towards Cleantech
We acknowledge the impact technology has on the environment and we share a responsibility to invest in making our products, such as software, greener and more sustainable for ourselves and our clients. As a key step in our journey to make a positive impact and transform the world, we joined the Green Software Foundation steering committee, a call to action that encourages a sustainable way of living and positively impacts society, the environment, the economy and the cultural good of humanity.
We promote environmental awareness
To guarantee environmental awareness inside our company, we created the “Be kind to the Planet Learning Map,” a Globant University training program which gathers different learning opportunities and tools for Globers to incorporate the concepts in their projects with clients.
Over the past few years, we have been consistently measuring and working to reduce our carbon footprint. We focus on the areas of greatest impact to become a more carbon efficient company.
