Policies & Programs

From employee resource groups to recycling practices, here’s how we approach sustainability at HubSpot.


As a participant in the UN Global Compact, we have committed to adopt sustainable practices, report on those practices, and track them over time. 

We have designed and maintained our global facilities to reduce HubSpot’s environmental impact and have implemented several programs in the areas of video conferencing, workplace flexibility, recycling, and energy conservation that get the job done while using and re-using resources at the most efficient level possible. We also support remote work and provide our employees with remote access to applications, programs, data, and collaboration tools to reduce environmental cost associated with commuting, office space usage, and team travel.  

We've achieved carbon neutrality for Scope 1 and 2 through green energy tariffs and Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs). As we prepare to set science based emissions reduction targets, we have continued to offset aspects of our Scope 3 emissions. This year, we offset 4,500 metric tons of emissions to cover our 2021 transportation and remote working by purchasing and investing in the nature-based and renewable energy projects. 


Company culture and investing in our people are not only HR priorities at HubSpot, they are core business priorities. We see it as our responsibility to build and scale a culture that helps people do their best work, and is above all, inclusive. 

We’re also passionate about helping our global communities grow better. Through our global HubSpot Helps community impact program, we support initiatives in two core areas: education and entrepreneurship. These two areas align with our core mission, as well as employees’ passions. To further invest in organizations making a difference, in 2021 we launched HubSpot for Nonprofits, which builds on our commitment to nonprofits around the world. The program provides eligible organizations an ongoing 40% discount on our software as well as access to an ecosystem of support, including solutions partners, an active community, and extensive resources.

Diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DI&B) is another core part of our mission. HubSpot customers are diverse in their backgrounds, experiences, and needs, and to help them grow better, we need to build a company that is reflective of that diversity. We have incorporated DI&B into our policies and practices, education and events, and executive and community programs. These include our annual diversity report, our DI&B committee and team, executive and employee training, and our global employee resource groups.


Two key policies help us drive forward our sustainable governance practices: (1) our Code of Use Good Judgment, which applies to all of our employees, officers, and directors and highlights that everything we do at HubSpot will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct, and (2) our Human Rights Policy, which outlines HubSpot’s position on fundamental human rights.

We also believe privacy and data protection are the foundation for trust.  Accordingly, we support the roll-out of privacy and data protection laws around the world. We also build privacy-enhancing features into our platform, as evidenced by our GDPR Playbook.

Finally, the Nominating and ESG Committee of our Board of Directors is responsible for, and has oversight over, HubSpot’s ESG efforts under its committee charter.
