    Sustainability

    At Mimecast, we are committed to environmental resilience and have taken significant steps to reduce and offset our collective footprint.

    We've installed solar arrays at multiple office locations, use 100% renewable energy to power many of our data centers and offices, and eliminated all single-use paper and plastic in our office kitchens. We've also created incentives for green commuting such as efficient vehicle charging stations and parking.

    Starting in 2021, Mimecast conduced a full materiality assessment and procured renewable energy credits to offset our entire operational footprint (Scope 1 & 2 emissions) with third-party certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) and carbon offsets. As part of our offset efforts, Mimecast has invested in RECs and offsets associated with a reforestation project in Uchindile and Mapanda, Tanzania. By supporting the replanting of these forests that were decimated by wildfires, Mimecast is committed to offsetting its carbon footprint while helping to restore a vital ecosystem in the southern portion of Tanzania.

    We recognize that we can't solve our planet's problems alone, but we can and will do our part while setting an example for others.

    Volunteerism

    Our commitment to our communities starts with our 1,800+ passionate, purpose-driven Mimecasters. All employees are given five days of paid time off to volunteer with any organization that they feel passionately about. Each year, Mimecasters volunteer hundreds of hours in support of our community partners. From in-office engagement to virtual volunteering to long-term mentorships, Mimecast provides employees with a range of global opportunities to give back.

    Our employees also take advantage of our generous matching gift program and recurring team volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

    Careers

    Investing in our people: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Mimecast

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion must be at the heart of how we do things so that it can be a core enabler of our overall growth and success. We know Mimecasters thrive when they can bring their full selves to work, in a welcoming, supportive, and engaging environment, enabling them to do their best work, best teamwork and greatest learning. We are better able to serve our customers when we have diverse perspectives working together to build innovative, world-class products effectively serving the diverse needs of our clients.

    Our ongoing commitment to building community resilience through our Social Impact programming is further underpinned by our belief that efforts in creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive communities must go beyond our four walls. More importantly, we believe Diversity, Equity and Inclusion doesn't just make good business sense, it is a moral imperative.
