Climate Action at Canva

Canva's commitment

Alongside our partners, employees, and creative community, we’re committed to making even more of a positive impact across every aspect of the business. In 2021, our global operations will be carbon neutral, and we’re working on transitioning our print operations to also become carbon neutral. In addition, Canva’s head office in Australia is powered by 100% renewable energy. Canva’s global operations and data services will be transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2024. We’re also committed to ensuring we have a positive impact on the climate and have set the huge goal of being completely climate positive by 2023. The focus is on reducing our footprint, with our per employee emissions reduced by roughly 50% over the next five years. What we can’t reduce, we’ll offset with internationally recognized carbon projects and planting initiatives.

We are carbon neutral

Our first carbon neutral objective was achieved by joining the Climate Active network, and our Australian operations and international data are certified carbon neutral as of 2020.

We print sustainably

We source paper from sustainable sources and our packaging is made with Post Consumer Waste. Where possible, we print locally to avoid an estimated 80% of the emissions caused by shipping internationally. We have launched a One Print One Plant campaign, where one tree is planted for every Canva design printed.

We support ethical suppliers

We choose to work with ethical suppliers that embrace environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes.

We consume consciously

On weekdays, our kitchens provide breakfast and lunch for our teams globally. In our Sydney office of 600 staff, 70% of produce is sourced from organic farms.

We minimize waste

All our organic waste is composted, all single-use plastics have been removed from our Australian kitchens, and we’re currently working to achieve the same in our global offices. In addition, we support various charities with zero food waste initiatives.
