Zscaler collaborates with IT leaders to modernize their operations by utilizing a Zero Trust security model that eliminates the need for on-premise security equipment, resulting in reduced IT waste and energy use – all while working towards our common carbon reduction goals.
Zscaler achieved carbon neutrality for calendar year 2022 by combining renewable energy certificates (RECs) and carbon offset purchases that matched their estimated power usage and carbon emissions. Working with an external third-party on a certified carbon inventory technique and estimating overall emissions were among the efforts.
Zscaler reduced scope 2 emissions by including renewable energy consumption parameters into their data center procurement process. Zscaler then acquired renewable energy certificates (RECs) to assist local wind and solar projects. Permanent and extra carbon credits from third-party certified projects were used to offset scope 1 and larger scope 3 emissions from offices, business travel, and procurement, as well as customer and public cloud usage.
Regional Vice President, Net Zero Cloud, Salesforce, Stuart Parry stated that with Zscaler, by shifting apps to the cloud, they are able to safeguard their worldwide workforce from any threats while simultaneously decreasing their carbon impact.
