We want to be part of the solution
Lowering emissions isn’t something we do on the side. It’s an integrated part of everyday business.
As Spotify grows, so too does our responsibility. We owe it to society, our listeners and creators to strive for a better future.

Climate change is something that affects every one of us, no matter where you are or what you listen to.

We’re always looking for ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Here are the five key areas we’re working on.
Goods & Services
Title:Suppliers who share our goals
Our biggest source of GHG emissions comes from the goods and services we purchase. We’re focused on working and collaborating with like-minded suppliers to reduce emissions in this area.
Title:Audio for good
As a global platform, we have an important role to play in educating our listeners and encouraging action. We also can’t ignore the CHG emissions they generate.
Title:Collaborating in new ways
Spotify operates in many markets around the world. And we’ve got plans to expand into many more. So we’re reinventing the way we work globally with flexibility and sustainability in mind.
Title:Making workplaces better places
We have offices in 43 cities around the globe. Whilst their impact on our total emissions is small (around 2% of our GHG emissions in 2020), we’re always working to make it smaller.
Title:Taking urgent action
Whilst net zero carbon is where we want to be, and what we’re working towards, we know that time is running out and urgent climate action needs to happen right now.
