We recognize the importance of a thoughtful approach to corporate citizenship and sustainability in helping advance the long-term interests of DigitalOcean and our stockholders. As a part of its primary duty to oversee corporate strategy, the Nominating and Governance Committee of our Board of Directors oversees how environmental, social and governance (ESG) related issues may impact our long-term interests. Our ESG strategy is informed by analysis of:

  • Our research to identify policies, principles and practices of our peer companies and the best disclosure practices related to each;
  • Internal feedback from employees to help determine which topics have the greatest impact on our business; and
  • Our current stockholder base, as well as prospective investors, to identify key issues emphasized by our stockholders.
