Creating a Sustainable Workplace

When an entire enterprise is moving in the same direction, small actions can make a big difference. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company, we have a relatively small operational footprint—which in turn generates relatively low emissions. But we still take 100% responsibility for managing our resources and reducing the environmental impact of our workplaces through a wide range of initiatives.

  • LEED-certified facilities

  • Waste management

  • Eliminating plastic

  • Electronic recycling

Our 12-floor San Francisco HQ was designed and built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Its sustainable construction and energy-conserving design earned it a LEED Gold certification. Our Dublin office is LEED-certified at the Platinum level.

We’re excited that Asana’s office at 3 World Trade Center in New York will also pursue LEED certification. We expect to continue investing in green buildings for our office locations, which typically have reduced operational costs and often have worker health and productivity benefits as well.

Through a concerted effort in FY23, Asana corporate headquarters diverted 80% or more of non-hazardous waste from landfills through our reuse, recycling, and composting program. We implemented several initiatives to prioritize bio-waste diversion. These initiatives included educating employees on the importance of appropriate disposal methods, implementing a comprehensive waste management program that emphasized the importance of sorting waste, and investing in appropriate infrastructure to manage organic solids.

In FY23, we started phasing out single-use plastic cups, beverage containers, food snacks and wrappers. Our goal is to eliminate non-essential single-use plastic products from Asana managed culinary operations by the end of FY24.

We partnered with Human-I-T to donate 30 working devices and divert 2,995 pounds of electronic waste including non-functional devices, damaged devices, cables, and keyboards, among other items. The organization uses their donations to help bridge the digital divide.

A mindful approach in our kitchens

We design and manage our culinary program at our San Francisco headquarters to produce food for our teams while caring for the world we live in.

The culinary team at our San Francisco headquarters supports Asanas by offering sustainably responsible food services in our offices. We strive to be good stewards in two fundamental ways:

  • Providing balanced meals that are kind to the environment by choosing whole ingredients prepared in thoughtful ways; and
  • Celebrating different cultures to amplify the rich diversity in the Asana community.

Our culinary team has transformed its approach to sustainable food service by:

  • Planning intentional menus with primarily local and vegetable sources
  • Tracking our protein consumption and prioritizing lower-carbon protein sources
  • Optimizing energy use to reduce energy spikes and demand on the grid
  • Utilizing edible food scraps in creative ways and repurposing excess inventory

In FY24, we expect to move to sustainable products by eliminating single-use products including compostable and non-compostable single-use products.


No meal wasted

Our culinary team provides nutritious, sustainably sourced meals for our employees every day—all while staying focused on minimizing food waste.

Excess perishable or prepared food which can’t be repurposed for other meals is donated to a charity organization within our local community that provides food to those in need, in order to further reduce waste and support the alleviation of hunger.

In FY23, we donated 2,200 pounds of food or about 2,940 meals.

Customer Case Study

Asana for food products

Danone aims to inspire healthier and more sustainable eating and drinking practices, and believes that food produced responsibly can restore the planet’s health.

Their Nature Agenda includes carbon neutrality, regenerative agriculture, water stewardship, and a circular economy for food packaging. Danone’s digital transformation initiatives, which officially began in 2019, bring software and automation to the company’s factories, operations, and internal services, helping them make progress on these objectives as well as improve safety and productivity. Danone contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development goals and aims to become one of the first multinational companies to obtain B Corp™ certification by 2025.

These ambitious goals prompted teams around Danone to seek new ways to work effectively, and after a number of departments adopted Asana, the central IT team made it broadly available as an official work management platform. Today, digital transformation teams use Asana to oversee program rollouts across multiple geographies, follow standardized workflows to successfully update factories, and share learnings between markets to speed up the transformation.

Managing our Climate-Related Risk and Opportunities

Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. We recognize our responsibility to ensure we are prudent in the oversight and management of such topics.

Throughout FY23 we engaged with our stakeholders in the management of climate-related risk. Based on what we learned, we are beginning to integrate the disclosure recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) into our climate reporting. In this report, our climate disclosures cover three of the TCFD’s focus areas, including governance, strategy, and metrics.


The Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for Board-level oversight of our environmental risks and opportunities, including those presented by climate change. Two or more times per year the committee receives a report on our ESG strategy and emerging developments across the ESG landscape. The ESG Steering Committee is composed of Asana employees and senior leaders, and is tasked with guiding our policies and tracking our progress on discrete elements of Asana’s environmental sustainability approach.

For more information on the governance of our ESG strategy, see “Oversight and Committees”.


We are conscious of our daily impact on the environment and take a mindful approach to facilities management. This includes taking steps to better understand our current carbon footprint. We conducted an inventory of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in FY23, and we continue to identify opportunities for reduction.

Through this exercise we know that our direct emissions, Scope 1 and 2, are relatively low and that our largest source of emissions is our supply chain. Therefore, we plan to begin partnering with key suppliers in an effort to reduce emissions originating from our supply chain. We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers, which help reduce our footprint by dynamically scaling our usage according to the present need. We recently adopted our Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes our expectations for environmental practices.

As of FY23, we achieved carbon neutrality and 100% renewable electricity in our offices. Our carbon-neutral boundary includes our direct emissions for Scope 1 and 2 as well as certain indirect emissions for Scope 3, namely business travel, employee commuting, and outsourced data centers. We intend to continue to purchase high quality nature-based and technology-based offsets while we reduce our emissions.

For more information on our carbon neutrality strategy, see “Asana CA AB 1305 Carbon Neutrality“.


Additional measures to reduce our carbon footprint

Three steps Asana is taking to minimize our environmental impact.

  • We consider proximity to public transportation as part of our site selection process to make it easier for employees to choose environmentally friendly mass transit options.
  • We subsidize employees’ public transportation costs.
  • We offer a monthly bicycle credit for employees who choose to ride to work, and provide a micromobility benefit that gives discounts and subsidies to employees who use bike-sharing and ride-sharing services.
