Environmental sustainability at GitHub

Environmental sustainability at GitHub. GitHub is committed to sustainability an environmental sustainable home for all developers. At GitHub, we believe in the extraordinary potential and power of a diverse, collaborative developer community to accelerate human progress. I am excited to share GitHub’s commitment to building the environmentally sustainable home for all developers.

At GitHub, we believe in the extraordinary potential and power of a diverse, collaborative developer community to accelerate human progress. Just look at the first-ever powered  flight on another planet as one amazing example of what developers can achieve together! Through the power of this community, we have an opportunity to make a positive, lasting impact on our planet, too.

In honor of  Earth Day, I am excited to share GitHub’s commitment to building the environmentally sustainable home for all developers, so you can continue to write the software that the world depends on, knowing that we’re working to ensure that the platform you build on is contributing to the health of our planet.

Our approach

Our parent company, Microsoft, has made a  sweeping set of commitments to combat climate change across carbon, water, waste and ecosystems. As a starting point, we have taken inspiration from their leadership and are making the following commitments of our own:

Carbon-free software

We envision a future where carbon-free software is standard—where software development, deployment, and use contribute to the global climate solution without every developer having to be an expert. Here’s how we are laying the groundwork for a carbon-free software future:

  • Carbon neutral since 2019: GitHub has been operating at net-zero carbon since July 2019, and all development on and use of  GitHub.com since then has been carbon neutral.
  • 100% renewable energy by 2025: We’re on pace to power our current and projected energy needs with clean renewable energy by 2025.
  • Carbon negative by 2030: We are continually working to reduce our operational carbon intensity and will invest in carbon removal solutions to remove more carbon emissions than we create.
  • Remote workforce accountability: At GitHub, we have a remote-first culture, with the majority of our global team working remote part- or full-time (and, of course, we’re all remote right now). In addition to accounting for emissions related to work by Hubbers when they work from a GitHub office, we also account for the carbon footprint of Hubbers working remotely in our carbon reporting and renewable energy procurement efforts. We offset all emissions related to operating GitHub, including remote work.

Stay Safe on GitHub: Security Practices to Follow

As developers in this deeply interconnected community use open source code to build software, Github security should be a top priority. This is because extensive code re-use increases the risk of distributing vulnerabilities from one dependency or repository to another. As such, every contributor should focus on creating a secure development environment. Here are eight security practices that GitHub users can follow to stay safe and protect their code:
