KnowBe4's Commitment to Sustainability

KnowBe4 takes environmental responsibility seriously and is committed to sustainability for the good of our customers, the good of our staff, and the good of the planet. While KnowBe4 has a lower than average carbon footprint due to the nature of our business, we recognize that our operations do have an impact on the environment, and know that we can lower our footprint even further.

Our Commitments

  1. To achieve net zero carbon emissions across our business by 2040 — 10 years ahead of the United Nations’ Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
  2. To increase our use of clean, renewable energy to an average of at least 25% for our offices globally by 2025.
  3. To reach an overall annual average waste diversion rate of 80% from landfill for our U.S. Corporate Headquarters.

“Climate change and the health of our environment impact every living thing on this planet. At KnowBe4 we embrace extreme ownership, and this includes extreme ownership of our environment. From the very top to the bottom of our Organizational Chart, we are engaged in doing the right things to help protect our planet. We don’t just do the big things, like committing to net zero carbon by 2040. We do the little things too, like neighborhood clean-ups and composting our breakroom coffee grinds. Environmental responsibility is not just our company stance, it is our culture; it is who we are.”

- Lael, Director of Global Sustainability
