Offices & sustainable sourcing
ON24 aims to lease office space with high environmental standards. Our company headquarters in San Francisco at 50 Beale Street is LEED Platinum rated. Our office space at 210 Pentonville Road in London has an EPC energy rating of A. Our office space in Sydney at 309 Kent Street achieved a 5.5 star NABERS energy rating and a 5.0 star NABERS water rating.
We are reducing business wastage by removing our reliance on paper and other single-use products in our premises, and by choosing sustainable office supplies – such as those with certifications from the Forest Stewardship Council or the Staples Eco-IDTM – wherever possible.
We want our people to keep electronic records instead of paper records. It’s one of the best ways we can reduce paper usage and get rid of the requirement for off-site paper storage.
We are working to eliminate single-use plastic cups and utensils from ON24’s offices and instead increase access to compostable and reusable kitchen supplies. Just as importantly, we are encouraging our teams to recycle paper, glass, hard plastic, aluminum, tin cans, and cardboard, and reject plastic bottles in favor of refills from our on-site water coolers.

Travel & events
Our employees live and work around the globe. For employees that choose to work in an office, they can take advantage of ON24’s Commuter Benefit Plan, which makes taking public transportation to work the more attractive and cost-effective option.
Our offices are all located near key stations and public transportation hubs and many of our offices provide end-of-trip amenities like secure bike storage, showers, and locker rooms.
We work hard to keep events more sustainable by conserving resources, reducing waste, and encouraging our attendees to do the same. Employees are encouraged to reduce nonessential business travel through the use of technologies such as video conferencing.
We’ve chosen to partner with Google and Microsoft Azure as our cloud service platform providers because their commitments to sustainability will ultimately help us further reduce our carbon footprint. Google became the first major company to be carbon neutral and was the first company to achieve 100% renewable energy. They have pledged to run on carbon-free energy at all their data centers by 2030. Microsoft Azure has committed to use 100% renewable energy by 2025, be water positive by 2030, and obtain a zero-waste certification by 2030.
We’ve also chosen to utilize data centers that share our goal in minimizing our impact on the environment. Our EU-based data center uses 100% renewable energy and one of our U.S.-based data centers is in a LEED Gold rated building, using 53% renewable energy and 87% carbon-free energy..
We use energy-efficient IT equipment and prefer to invest in products that carry reputable certifications or labels such as Energy Star. We also responsibly dispose of our IT equipment through providers who have R2, e-Stewards, or other recognized certifications for environmentally sound electronic waste disposal.
Privacy & data protection
ON24 takes comprehensive measures to protect its infrastructure, network and applications. We have a multitude of layered controls in place to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems, data and services based on the COSO framework. We perform SOC 2 Type II audits of these controls and external penetration testing against the ON24 platform. For more information see our Platform Security page.
An integral part of data protection also requires building and fostering a culture of security and privacy awareness. All ON24 employees and contractors with access to our systems are required to agree to security policies to obtain access to ON24’s systems and must take part in mandatory annual data privacy and security awareness training.
We are dedicated to helping our customers comply with the GDPR, the CCPA and CPRA, and other applicable privacy and data protection laws. For more information, please visit our Privacy Center, which may be updated based on changes to applicable privacy and data protection laws.
We are committed to engaging in business practices to combat slavery and human trafficking, and we are committed to ensuring transparency within our business. For more information on ON24’s commitment to protecting human rights, please see our Human Rights Policy and our Modern Slavery Statement.
Diversity, equity & inclusion
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are integral to ON24’s mission. At ON24, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all our employees. We strive to build a team of talented and collaborative employees who bring a diversity of backgrounds, skills and experiences to the organization. This diversity makes us more creative, innovative and customer centric. Perhaps even more importantly, we must also have an inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome to express their ideas to truly realize the benefit of this diversity. Our employees receive unconscious bias training to help them understand that unconscious biases exist and the steps they can take to reduce the likelihood that such biases will impact their decisions and interactions with others in the workplace.
