At VMware, we’re optimistic about the power of technology to help solve big societal problems and are committed to leading responsibly. One of our key focus areas is about changing our relationship with energy. According to the U.N.’s report, as a society we need to shift 70-85 percent of electricity to renewable energy sources by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Data centers are responsible for two percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions—roughly the same as global air travel.

Climate change no longer can be passed off as tomorrow’s problem. People only have to look out the window or turn on the news to see how the world’s weather patterns are changing at an alarming rate. Whole communities are already having to adapt to its impacts, and there are unsettling signs that the Earth’s natural ecosystems are buckling under the pressure of global warming and mankind’s general mismanagement of the planet.
Over the past five years, our journey towards a more diverse and inclusive workplace has evolved from a targeted focus on women to an intersectional program for all employees. While we continue to learn and iterate to provide the best environment for our employees to thrive, we are steadfast in our belief in the power of human difference. In order to harness that power, Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) continues to be a critical business priority. We’ve taken an agile approach.
VMware technology forms a digital foundation for organizations that are changing the world. From virtualization to cloud computing and mobile technology, two decades of innovation have given rise to a more connected planet. Even as new technologies emerge and connect us, the world continues to face complex, interconnected and systemic issues like growing inequality, access to opportunity and education, and climate change.
One of the first companies to make an explicit link between sustainability and innovation was Nike — when it promoted its former CSO, Hannah Jones, to lead the company’s business model incubator Valiant Labs in July.
