Beyond Cyber Protection Leadership: Acronis’ Environmental and Social 2023 ESG Report Revealed

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced the release of its 2023 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report detailing the company’s performance and achievements in 2023 and charting a course for future positive impact. The 2023 report highlights the company’s outstanding performance and achievements throughout 2023 but also underscores Acronis’ dedication to making a meaningful difference in the world. It highlights the company’s sustainable business practices including the results of a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions review and extensive materiality assessment. It notes important topics for Acronis stakeholders, setting the foundation to further reduce the company’s carbon footprint. It also presents alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by identifying specific areas where the company is making an impact.

Acronis has consistently championed responsible practices, aiming to minimize its ecological footprint. Beyond this, the company has actively engaged with the communities it operates in, fostering positive impacts through volunteer-driven environmental days and IT education. Notably, Acronis has extended its support to under-served communities, particularly through building schools and fitting out computer labs, setting up educational programs that contribute to social upliftment.

The company also extends its environmental and educational programs to partners, helping service providers to develop their own CSR programs through participating in joint initiatives and with the help of the newly launched CSR in a Box. Acronis partners are able to reduce their own carbon footprint through deploying Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to more workloads, thus consolidating and minimizing the number of solutions required to ensure complete cyber protection of their customers.

“As we strive to become a more sustainable enterprise, our journey involves continuously expanding our thinking, discovering fresh opportunities, and understanding the interconnectedness between our actions and the broader world,” said Ezequiel Steiner, CEO, Acronis “We take responsibility for creating value for all our stakeholders by embedding environmental, social, and governance considerations firmly into our business operations.”
