CitizenSnap

At Snap, our mission is to contribute to human progress by empowering people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together.

In doing so we lead with our values — kind, smart and creative — but it always begins with kindness. We design kindness into the way we run our company, how we build our products, and how we treat our people, society, and the planet. Our values inform how we think about Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and we set our ESG priorities to match.
The CitizenSnap Report recounts our ESG efforts during 2020. In a year that saw huge upheaval, we focused on supporting our team and our Snapchat community. We are proud of what we were able to accomplish — from rolling out resources to support the mental health and well-being of Snapchatters, to helping millions of young people cast their vote, to achieving carbon neutrality, to educating our community about COVID-19, to fighting misinformation, to creating a more inclusive culture and using our platform to promote racial justice.
We know there is so much more to do, and so many ways we can continue to improve. While we roll up our sleeves and continue to do so, please read our 2021 CitizenSnap report to learn about our priorities, challenges, successes and plans for each of our ESG focus areas: Society, Planet, People, and Governance.

Society

Every day, on every Snap team, decisions we make have an impact on the broader society of which we are a part. That’s why we believe we have a moral responsibility to design our products ethically, to promote civic education, to fight for online privacy and safety, and to give back through philanthropy, volunteerism, and nonprofit partnerships.

Planet

The Snapchat community cares passionately about combating climate change and stands to experience some of its worst impacts. We feel a deep responsibility to take action at the pace and scale that is needed. In the report we announce an ambitious three-part climate strategy including a science-based reduction target, historical and future carbon neutrality, and a commitment to 100% renewable electricity.

People

At Snap, we want to create an environment where all members of our team feel supported to grow and succeed. We strive to build a culture where our team members feel welcome, safe, and able to show up authentically and be their best selves.

Governance

Snap maintains a governance structure focused on long-term shareholder value, transparency, and robust decision-making processes. Our Board is diverse and experienced. Our compliance program hews to governmental best practices but also looks beyond the law to ensure we hold ourselves to the highest level of integrity, and we invest significant resources into data governance. Our tax program is aimed at paying fair taxes where we do business. And we run a robust enterprise risk program that links enterprise-level risks with company strategic objectives.
