Sustainability at Unity

We’re committed to driving sustainability throughout our entire ecosystem, from minimizing our footprint to supporting creators leveraging real-time 3D (RT3D) to decarbonize the world.

Building a more sustainable future

As global citizens who share the planet, we’re responsible for taking action to address climate change, and we’re dedicated to reducing our environmental impact today and into the future.

Our 2022 impact in numbers

We’re proud to continue our carbon neutral status. Our journey has just begun.

GHG emissions

Our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across Scopes 1–3 were fully offset via verified offsets, removals, and energy attribute certificates.

Grants and partnerships

We supported creators and nonprofit organizations that are increasing awareness and spurring action on climate change.

Gamers reached

As a UN Playing for the Planet Alliance member, we co-facilitated the 2021 Green Game Jam, which shared sustainability-focused content with millions around the world through popular games.

Our sustainability approach

As a responsible business, Unity leads and empowers our ecosystem to create a more sustainable world.

Measuring our impact

Since 2021, we have reported our GHG emissions inventory, which encompasses our full Scope 1–3 emissions, including:

  • Direct emissions
  • Indirect emissions from purchased electricity
  • Indirect emissions from purchased goods and services, capital goods, employee commuting, business travel, operational waste, and others

We have remained carbon neutral since 2021 through energy attribute certificates (EACs), clean power procurement via utility providers, carbon offsets, and removal projects.

Managing our impact

We are shrinking our footprint by:

  • Lowering our office emissions by procuring clean energy and energy attribute certificates (EACs), and reducing waste through recycling and an IT equipment donation program.
  • Sourcing energy-efficient IT equipment and recycling used equipment responsibly.
  • Engaging our employees with sustainability initiatives, educational sessions, and volunteering opportunities.
  • Making ESG-screened fund options for retirement investments available.
  • Screening vendors for sustainability criteria and engaging our supply chain for strong sustainability commitments.
Partnering for climate action

Partnering for climate action

With our global creator community, we have the opportunity to catalyze environmental impact beyond our own operations by leveraging partnerships, supporting environmentally focused creators, encouraging RT3D innovation, and inspiring our community to take individual and collective action. ​Through our partnership with the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3), we are developing tools and resources to support our suppliers in their own sustainability journeys.

Environmental grants and partnerships

We aspire to catalyze environmental impact beyond our own operations through partnerships and RT3D innovation.
