On February 15, we released our annual Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, providing a comprehensive overview of our performance and achievements throughout the previous year, emphasizing our commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

The new report highlights the company’s sustainable business practices, including the results of a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions review and an extensive materiality assessment. It notes important topics for Acronis stakeholders, setting the foundation for further reducing the company’s carbon footprint. It also presents alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by identifying specific areas where the company is making an impact.

We care for the environment and engage with our communities, fostering positive impacts through volunteer-driven environmental days and IT education. Notably, we continue our support to under-served communities, particularly through building schools and fitting out computer labs, setting up educational programs that contribute to uplifting society.

We also extended our environmental and educational programs to partners, helping service providers to develop their own CSR programs through participating in joint initiatives and with the help of the newly launched CSR in a Box. Acronis partners are also able to reduce their own carbon footprint through deploying Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to more workloads, thus consolidating and minimizing the number of solutions required to ensure complete cyber protection for their customers.

On the governance front, we've taken significant steps, including the development of a procurement information hub and extending the supplier questionnaire. And to enhance transparency, we launched the Acronis Trust Center, providing visibility on certifications, compliance and security information.

Here are some of key highlights from Acronis’ 2023 ESG report:
