Why does Dropbox have no Climate change or energy policy?

Why does Dropbox have no Climate change or energy policy?

Helpful | Level 6

Does anyone know what Dropbox's policy on climate change is?

Google and Apple are moving towards 100% renewable energy to run their servers.

What is Dropbox dong to stop emitting greenhouse gasses?

I'm sure a company this big must have a policy, I can't find it.
Any help apprciated. 

 

Thanks

Thanks for that. Interesting!
I will contact them, perhaps they have more information than I can find on Dorpbox's stance on Climate Change.

I've never seen anything mentioned if I'm honest Alisatair.

All I can suggest is dropping a message to them at http://www.dropbox.com/support

Thanks Mark,

Wow, I'm shocked.

I wonder how many tons of CO2 a day they / we pump out.

I'll drop them a line.

I found this, which does not bode well...

In July 2014 Ethical Consumer searched the Dropbox Inc website, www.dropbox.com, for information on how the company managed its environmental impacts. No such information could be found and Dropbox did not respond to Ethical Consumer's request for information. Consequently it received a worst rating for environmental reporting. It also lost half a mark in the climate change category for not providing any information on the types of electricity (renewable or otherwise) used in its computer infrastructure.

Interesting contrast:

Dropbox: NO environmental policy

Apple: https://www.apple.com/uk/environment/

Google: https://environment.google/

 

Wake up Dropbox!
