By embracing sustainability, Snowflake aspires to promote safety, efficiency, and responsibility in a manner that protects Snowflake employees, communities, customers, and the environment, now and into the future. 



Snowflake demonstrates its commitment to sustainability by considering two principles when making key environmental business decisions: reducing the global environmental footprint of our operations, and openly engaging on sustainability issues.

Reducing the global environmental footprint of our operations by lowering greenhouse gas emissions through

  • Adopting sustainable real estate practices such as targeting energy-efficient workspaces and office locations accessible by public transportation.
  • Minimizing waste through increased recycling, single-use plastic reduction efforts, organic waste disposal and composting programs, and food waste reduction initiatives.
  • Striving to use sustainable products for our office-space maintenance.
  • Beginning to create the infrastructure needed to measure our carbon footprint, which may involve partnering with third parties such as our landlords and building managers.  
  • Making sustainability-conscious decisions at Snowflake Summit 2022.

Engaging openly on sustainability issues by

  • Communicating regularly with stakeholders on sustainability issues and initiatives.
  • Partnering with local and global leaders in the tech space to share best practices and attend and participate in sustainability conferences and initiatives.
  • Continuing to evaluate and develop Snowflake’s approach to sustainability.
