As we increase the productivity and efficiency of our customers’ workflows, Platform.sh remains dedicated to lessening the effects of our activity on the environment.Our environmental policy
As a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), we help our customers minimize the environmental impact of their applications by hosting them in the cloud. But there’s more to being green than simply providing cloud hosting.
The carbon footprint of any workload is the result of the energy efficiency of the datacenter, the carbon mix of its primary energy sources, the actual workloads, and their orchestration on the underlying infrastructure. Platform.sh helps customers reduce carbon through improved operating models for their sites.
Platform.sh is a highly dynamic container-based solution. Compared to running directly on generic cloud virtual machines, we can achieve unparalleled levels of density, while still guaranteeing resources to production and development environments.

Platform.sh partners with infrastructure providers committed to improving their environmental footprints. As a multicloud provider, we offer our customers a choice of provider and region in which their workloads will run.
Our infrastructure providers have set ambitious goals for the next few decades. To meet them, they’re investing in green energy, like solar or wind farms.
By 2040, Amazon Web Services will produce net-zero carbon emissions and power 100% of its datacenters with renewable energy.
Google has been carbon neutral since 2007 and plans to operate on 24x7, carbon-free energy in all datacenters and campuses worldwide by 2030.
Carbon neutral since 2012, by 2025, Microsoft Azure will shift to 100% supply of renewable energy for its datacenters, buildings, and campuses.
OVHcloud plans to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025 and is working towards generating net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Platform.sh has a fully remote workforce. Virtually all of our 250+ employees work from home and never need to commute to an office.
By skipping the daily commute, our staff greatly reduces their impact on air pollution, traffic congestion, and public transportation overcrowding.
With no need to provide office space for a vast majority of our workforce, Platform.sh conserves the energy that would have been expended in heating, cooling, and lighting our business facilities.
Our orchestrator R&D project limits the necessary computing resources of cloud applications in real time. The orchestrator places workloads as close as possible to customers and allows customers to dynamically migrate their workloads to the most energy efficient providers and regions.
By enabling our employees to work from home, we lessen the intense demand for office space construction that has contributed to the rise in CO₂ emissions.
