Elastic (NYSE: ESTC), the company behind Elasticsearch, has released its inaugural environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report. The report details the ways in which the company is addressing today's challenges with transparency and accountability to enhance the lives of its employees, customers, and society at large. In addition to outlining Elastic’s four ESG pillars, social impact, governance, environmental, and product societal impact, the inaugural report provides Elastic’s ESG data for the period January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021

"This report reflects our ongoing commitment to deepening the integration of ESG into the fabric of our corporate strategy—not simply because we need to, but because it’s the right thing to do," said Ash Kulkarni, CEO, Elastic.

Social Impact

As a globally distributed company, Elastic focuses on recruiting top, diverse talent to reflect the global nature of its customers. The company is committed to engaging, supporting, developing, and retaining its employees with a flexible and inclusive workplace, and fair and consistent pay practices. Elastic prioritizes engaging with the communities in which its employees live and work, primarily through the company’s philanthropic initiative, Elastic Cares, which is available to all permanent employees and consultants.
