Earth Day 2022
Technology is becoming a significant enabler of our daily lives. As such, building sustainable technology infrastructure is critical in order for us to maintain our ability to use technology while reducing our carbon footprint. Pure Storage is leading the way in delivering products and solutions that reduces energy consumption and real estate footprint of data centers while still offering the power and performance required. As part of our first ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) report, Pure conducted a product life cycle assessment (LCA) of its portfolio, specifically the FlashArray products, which found that Pure customers achieve up to 80% reduction in direct carbon usage by data systems compared to competitive products.
We are embracing the theme, ‘Invest in Our Planet’, for Earth Day 2022 with our commitment to continue investing in sustainable technologies. Pure is also committing to several goals to reduce the company’s own carbon footprint, making progress against Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions focused both on company operations and the use phase of Pure products:
- 50% intensity reduction in market-based Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per employee from FY20 to FY30
- Achieve net zero market-based Scope 1 and 2 emissions by FY40
- 66% intensity reduction in use of sold products from Scope 3 emissions per effective petabyte shipped from FY20 to FY30
