Environmental, Social and Governance

Environmental, Social and Governance

In this year’s report, we continue to address those ESG topics that we believe our investors, employees, customers, vendors, and other stakeholders consider the most important. We look forward to reporting our progress as we further integrate sustainability into our operations.


We are pleased to publish the results of our first carbon footprint assessment, which reflects the greenhouse gas emissions associated with our operational energy consumption (our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions) for fiscal 2022. We are still in the early days of our emissions reporting but are proud of our first step towards a climate-conscious future.


ESG is a key priority at Datadog, with direct oversight from the Board of Directors and management. Our board is composed of 50 percent racially/ethnically diverse members. Collectively, they possess the professional and industry knowledge, financial expertise, and high-level management experience that is necessary to oversee our business. We are committed to the highest standard of business ethics and strive to keep risk management, intellectual property protection, data security, and privacy at the forefront of our business.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Datadog, diversity means making a conscious effort to reflect the many experiences and identities of the world outside while treating each other with fairness and without bias. Inclusion is the choice we make every day to foster an environment where people of all backgrounds not only belong, but excel, so that we can succeed together as a company. Our Community Guilds bring together groups of individuals based on common backgrounds or demographic factors, and are open to the allies who support them.

Giving Back

At Datadog we believe in using our resources to support our global communities. We accomplish this through our philanthropy program, Datadog Cares. We held an end of year giving campaign where employees allocated funds given to them by Datadog to one or more of our outlined causes. Led by our employees, this campaign alone resulted in over $500,000 given to over 60 organizations in 2022.
