We Are a Force For Good

Our mission is to leave ahead a better future—to put back more into the environment, society and the global economy than we take—and to inspire our employees, customers and partners to do the same. To us, the seemingly impossible is possible. And we work to prove it every day.

Shrinking Emissions Through Virtualization


Having pioneered the development of server virtualization technologies, we’ve significantly increased the operational efficiency of IT resources and reduced the number of servers needed. In fact, every server virtualized is estimated to avoid the output of 4 tons of CO2 per year. The net positive impact of customers using *VMware’s server virtualization products is estimated to have avoided 340 million MT CO2e over the last 13 years. And we’re just getting started.

See our collective impact on the world



We are committed to developing transformative solutions that enable a net positive future and ensure sustainable growth. VMware 2020 is our roadmap for sustainability. It is structured around three pillars – Product, Planet, People – that organize the sustainability issues that we’ve determined are most relevant and material to our business. Our aspirations to be a force for good are reflected in each pillar and include a series of goals with a target date of 2020 to achieve.
