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. In the wake of COVID-19, we shifted to virtual work without missing 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.

Team efforts across the globe

As part of our company values, employees are encouraged to "be an owner" inside and outside Box. Among recent highlights by employee-led teams, our Redwood City office removed 200+ pounds of trash from Half Moon Bay and raised funds for the Nature Conservancy. 

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. COVID-19 made our mission more critical by heightening the need for safe remote work at home and strong business continuity plans.
