Fortinet Announces Commitment to Become Carbon Neutral by 2030 and Completes Net-Zero Sunnyvale Headquarter Campus

Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), a global leader in broad, integrated and automated  cybersecurity solutions, today announced its environmental sustainability commitment to  become carbon neutral by 2030, and the completion of its new net-zero Sunnyvale  headquarter campus as part of its broader commitment to social responsibility.  

In alignment with the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi) methodology and global  efforts to reduce carbon emissions, Fortinet will become carbon-neutral by 2030 through  the use of renewable energy, energy and carbon efficiency methodologies, and  emissions offset programs across its owned operations globally, including offices,  warehouses, and data centers. Currently, Fortinet has measured its Scope 1 and 2  emissions and will capture the inventory of its Scope 3 emissions in 2022. This  information will be disclosed in Fortinet’s first sustainability report to be published by mid 2022. 

Fortinet’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) includes delivering on our company  vision – a digital world you can always trust – by innovating sustainable security  technologies, diversifying cybersecurity talent, and promoting responsible business  across our value chain. Through its CSR approach, Fortinet remains committed to  respecting the environment and complying with evolving guidelines and regulations  related to environmental sustainability, as overseen by its Social Responsibility  Committee—a board-level committee created to oversee the company’s objectives,  strategy and risks relating to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, including  Environmental, Social and Governance matters. 

A proof point of Fortinet’s dedication to environmental sustainability is the development  and completion of Fortinet’s new corporate headquarters building, which is on-track to  become LEED-Gold Certified. The Sunnyvale campus is an honoree in the “Office/R&D  Build” category of the 2021 Silicon Valley Business Journal Structures Awards and uses  30% less energy than a standard building. Key features in the building that help reduce  environmental impact include photovoltaic panels and a radiant cooling system that  conserves energy and will save 76,600 gallons of water per year. These environmental minded features, such as the use of solar panels and purchased renewable energy in  the company’s owned facilities across North America and Europe, align with Fortinet  leadership’s long engagement in the concept of sustainability.  

Climate change continues to pose a significant threat, and all business and public  organizations around the globe must do their part to address it. Further to efforts in its  own operations, Fortinet is focused on reducing the environmental footprint of its  customers by innovating highly efficient, integrated appliances and cloud-based security  solutions.  

Years of dedicated innovation and the development of the industry’s only security focused processors built for unparalleled power and efficiency, have allowed Fortinet to  integrate multiple security and networking functions into a single appliance, saving on energy, space and cooling. As a result, Fortinet’s FortiGate security  appliances provide its customers with power consumption that is 3 to 16 times lower  than its competitors’ solutions and unequalled product environmental sustainability  impact.
