Protecting our planet

Building a better world together

Earth-friendly by nature

We harness our own cloud technology to operate sustainably and build a lasting future where we all thrive. Left unchecked, climate change disrupts the global economy, our company, and our stakeholders — so we take to heart our responsibility to protect the planet.

Doing our best work from anywhere

When it comes to saving on resources, we mean business. Since shifting to a hybrid work model we haven't missed a beat. Cloud technology, coupled with a flexible, open culture and best-of-breed solutions, allows us to work sustainably while supporting customers when and how they need us most.

We aim to reduce heavy metals and toxic chemicals that pollute the air, water, and soil for miles around dump sites.

Team efforts across the globe

As part of our company values, employees are encouraged to “be an owner” inside and outside Box. Our Green Team, a group of cross-functional Boxers, organizes a range of environment-focused events throughout the year, including beach/community cleanups, tree planting, and companywide engagement as part of our Global Impact Day.

Environmental benefits of Box

We move organizations from legacy and paper-based processes to the cloud so customers work securely and efficiently from anywhere. This reduces both office waste and commuting while ensuring strong business continuity plans.

In no small part, charity: water has been able to pursue our mission because of the support of strategic partners like Box. The ability to leverage cutting edge technologies has been a key to our success. We continue to benefit from the support of Box as we work to end the world water crisis.
