We are proud to be:

  • Disrupting how we operate – through FLEXWORK
  • Setting environmental targets with timelines 20 years ahead of some protocols
  • Including employee networks in charitable investment recommendations
  • Building partnerships that will ensure we have a diverse future workforce
  • Ensuring each and every employee has a voice

The impact we're having:

  • Employee engagement scores in the top quartile
  • Nearly $6M invested to help colleagues and communities impacted by COVID
  • Academic cybersecurity curriculum in more than 1,500 high schools, colleges, universities and other nonprofits in over 75 countries
  • Over 2,596 causes supported through donations and volunteers

Our three priorities

Our passion comes from wanting to create the most employee-centric and responsible company in the world. We recognize that we can't have a safer world if we don't respect our planet. We believe that all people should prosper and thrive, because everything we do is through a lens of inclusion.



We advance our industry.

Making the world safer and more secure is a big job, and as an industry leader, we take that responsibility seriously. We strive to be a model corporate citizen and continuously elevate our business practices, from our employee-facing initiatives and code of conduct to our suppliers and partner ecosystem. We set a high bar for ourselves and our value chain, striving to advance our shared interest in corporate responsibility standards across our industry.



We respect our planet.

There is only one planet Earth, and we recognize the role we must take in order to protect it. From our environmental stewardship efforts at sites around the world to our commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, we are taking meaningful action to make our business sustainable for the planet for the long term.



We uplift our communities.

We care about the communities we live and work in, so we mobilize our global workforce to have a positive social impact. We believe protecting our digital way of life is a privilege, and we strive to educate our communities on all aspects of cybersecurity. We invest in causes that align employee interests with community needs, and through our outreach programs, we support and uplift communities around the world.

Environmental, Social & Governance
performance and reporting

We've summarized our Corporate Responsibility pillars of passion, planet and people, and hope that the many initiatives we've described instill confidence in our commitment to advance our industry, respect our planet and uplift our communities.

That said, we know that stakeholders want to understand how Palo Alto Networks is performing against standard environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics. In January 2021, we committed to disclose our ESG performance in accordance with the International Business Council's Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics, an initiative of the World Economic Forum.

We plan to release this report in the fall of 2021, which will also align to frameworks established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). In the meantime, we've prepared highlights of our overall ESG progress as a baseline from which we expect to achieve continued progress.

We are actively building an inclusive and diverse workforce

We work every day to create an environment where our employees feel safer and more secure in being their authentic selves than the day before. Our inclusion and diversity focus areas have direct intersectionality with our corporate responsibility pillars.

We are committed to expanding our inclusion initiatives to create a fair playing field for all to thrive—where our workforce better reflects the world in which we live. It is not only the right thing to do but also vital to the continued growth and success of our company.
