For our office spaces, our Workplace Operations team is dedicated to making impact through small and sustainable changes. This process includes switching to LED lighting in our headquarters and other large (100+ employees) global offices, opting to use eco-friendly building resources like energy star appliances, near sourcing vendors, and responsibly disposing of office equipment/furniture. To prevent overconsumption of energy, we utilize office occupancy sensors, ensure electrical equipment is set to power saving mode, and adhere to local guidance during peak demand consumption.
Over the last two years, our Tech Ops team reduced energy consumption by migrating from three US-based data centers to AWS. In 2021, the team downscaled Amsterdam to only two racks with future plans to downsize further in 2023. These recent feats have enabled the company to move to more renewable power sources and track the impact of our business activity efficiently.
