Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

At Akamai, we believe in delivering business results the right way. That means operating at all times in ways that reflect our core values of trust, integrity, inclusion, and respect, and giving back to the communities in which our employees work and live around the world.

Akamai approaches environmental, social, and governance (ESG) priorities not as isolated initiatives, but as fundamental components of a holistic strategy to be the most innovative and high-performing company we can be — on all fronts. We strive to conduct business in ways that best serve the interests of all our stakeholders: employees, customers, partners, communities, and our planet, as well as our shareholders.

The information disclosed in our ESG reporting covers the entire scope of Akamai’s business activities, including all subordinate entities and subsidiaries, which also includes acquired subsidiary undertakings, as soon as the appropriate processes and systems are implemented, to enable consistent data collation and Akamai group level consolidation.
