The future is in the hands of our creators.

We believe the world is a better place with more creators in it – and creativity can and should come from anyone, anywhere. We focus the power of our talent, technology and grants to empower anyone to foster a more sustainable and inclusive world. 

Change happens when all voices are heard. That’s why we’re investing time, money and resources into making Unity education more accessible, creating economic opportunities for underrepresented creators, and maximizing the impact that their work has on local communities and the world.

Empowering through education

Learning should be accessible to everyone. We contribute our products, technology and expertise to enable over 300,000 students and teachers to learn and create with Unity every year. 

When the COVID-19 crisis began, we quickly released a free live course to help people start learning how to code at home, and we made our Learn Premium service free. Unity’s learning materials enable anyone to start their journey as a real-time 3D creator and access the rich employment market that these skills can unlock.

Creating economic opportunities

We partner with companies, nonprofits and governments around the world to encourage inclusive economic growth for individuals and communities.

SkillUp Coalition

Unity is a founding partner in this resource that upskills workers into in-demand jobs by connecting leading training and education providers, employers, technology developers, and job-readiness nonprofits.

Next Chapter

In partnership with Guild Education, Unity is helping displaced workers to find new roles with employers and sectors in entry-level QA testing and software development roles.

Mission Bit

Unity works with Mission Bit to build free, project-based professional computer science pathways for under-resourced high school youth across the San Francisco Bay Area.

TechWomen

For the past three years, Unity has supported this initiative empowering emergent women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) across Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East.

Senegal Delegation for Rapid Entrepreneurship (DER)

Unity is working with DER to increase wealth creation and inclusion in Senegal by training African developers and companies in real-time 3D and providing consulting services for new businesses.

Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM)

Unity partnered with this entrepreneurship incubator in India to launch a center of excellence that cultivates AR, VR and gaming in the region by providing training and advisory services to bolster economic opportunity for local developers.

Unity for Humanity

Creators around the globe are using Unity to tell stories and build tools that will have a positive and meaningful impact on society, their communities, and the planet. We created the Unity for Humanity Program to highlight and support these creators, the projects they are working on, and their journey to change lives and improve the state of our world. 

The Unity for Humanity Program will open for submissions later this year. Selected creators will receive funding from a pool of $100,000 USD, and technical support.

Environmental sustainability

We’re integrating environmental responsibility and sustainability initiatives throughout our operations, product, and overall business strategy and working proactively to reduce our carbon footprint across 40+ offices worldwide. Some of our workplace green initiatives include:

Resource conservation

At Unity offices around the world, we’re reducing energy consumption, associated emissions, and water consumption.

Reducing waste

Our day-to-day operations promote sustainable waste minimization practices through reduction, reuse, recycling, and using eco-friendly products. We do this through data collection, active monitoring, and with continuous improvement.

 

Traveling less

We encourage virtual meetings over business travel and insist on greener forms of transportation whenever travel is absolutely necessary.

Offsetting carbon

Unity purchases carbon offset credits through Cool Effect to neutralize our environmental impact for all essential business travel.

Advocating for consumer safety and privacy

Unity believes that everyone – creator, developer, player – is entitled to privacy and safety online.

Unity Privacy Policy

At our core, we believe in transparency: everyone using Unity tools and services has the right to know what personal information is saved and shared. We take data privacy and openness very seriously. To learn more about how you can review your data and exercise your data privacy rights, please see our Privacy Policy.

Online safety

Digital playgrounds should be safe for everyone and free from the threat of cyberbullying, harassment or abuse. We’re collaborating with other industry leaders to develop global standards around “disruptive behavior” and offer parents solutions for managing their children’s game and online interactions. We’re also working diligently to create anti-toxicity tools for developers, so they can unlock the best possible online experiences for anyone, everywhere.
