“Our efforts as a regional and global citizen deliver meaningful and measurable progress that positively impact our customers, partners, investors and people. We have a responsibility to them to act ethically and with respect for our modern society and the environment. We are implementing a list of actions across the whole chain, from eco-friendly and environmental solutions, transparency and trust, to equality, parity, inclusivity and ethics.”

Scaleway, the cloud that makes sense

Scaleway’s Impact Report

What effect do our activities have on our society, environment, people, partners, suppliers and shareholders? We set out to answer these questions in our Impact report, sectioned into three standalone pillars – Environment, Diversity & Inclusion and Ethics & Trust.

This report outlines Scaleway’s global sustainability, corporate responsibility and philanthropic performance for 2018-2020. It includes information about our management processes and performance across our whole value chain. We are committed to providing data and information in the most reliable, comprehensible and transparent way and hence this report is in accordance with ISO 50001:2018 – Energy management systems.




At Scaleway, we had to choose between two paths – one that could potentially lock our digital infrastructure into long-term dependence on coal and natural gas, or a longer one to transition to renewables, toward a brighter and more sustainable future. We chose the latter. And here are our commitments:

– We continue advocating for the reduction of water consumption in data centers and ban of water cooling towers in Europe

– As one of the signatories of the Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, we are taking ambitious climate action for a 1.5°C future, following Science Based Targets

– We keep adding new layers of transparency and call for industry to follow; for that we joined Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance (SDIA) to support the launch of their Open Data Hub

– We are committed to creating a restorative and regenerative circular economy by extending the life cycle of our equipment through reuse and repair
