Environmental, Social, and Governance

ESG at Datadog

Datadog is committed to developing a dialogue of transparency and accountability in the ways we conduct business.

The 2021 Environmental, Social, and Governance Report is Datadog's inaugural sustainability report. We address ESG topics where we seek greater engagement with our investors, employees, customers, vendors, and other stakeholders. Datadog is proud of the progress we have made, and we look forward to updating you as we further integrate sustainability into our operations.

ESG at Datadog



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


Datadog employees are the driving force behind our company culture. We aim to provide an environment that contributes to overall employee well-being and encourages talent development. All employees have access to an internal catalog of 100 courses, and an external library of more than 3,500 courses. We are focused on developing a diverse and inclusive community where individuals of all backgrounds are seen and valued for who they are.

Giving Back


We believe that contributing to the well-being of communities and society around us is the right thing to do. Together with our global employees, we donated over $4 million in 2021 to causes that impact our employees and the world around us, including Black Lives Matter, COVID-19 relief, and more.


Sustainability Efforts


We are continually evaluating ways to scale efficiently and reduce waste production. Born and bred in the cloud, the Datadog platform leverages economies of scale regarding carbon emissions and electricity usage while enabling our customers to reduce their own carbon footprint. Our latest version of the Datadog Agent uses 60 percent less CPU than previous versions, which we believe results in a meaningful global impact.
