Defining our place in society

As our formula states: we make good choices to build an ethical business and drive sustainable growth for our merchants. Now, we aim to extend this into societal and environmental action. It was an easy decision to make.

We take responsibility for our environmental impact

We use our technology to do good

We drive positive change in the communities we live and work in

In 2019, we focused on building a robust sustainability framework to grow from. We know that there’s still significant work to do, but we’re committed to addressing the challenges that lie ahead of us. 

Using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we aim to create long-term positive returns.

Our environmental impact

In 2019, we compensated for all greenhouse gases emitted in our operations since starting Adyen in 2006. We did this by purchasing credits from third-party verified emissions reduction projects - also known as “carbon offsets”. These projects focus on reforestation, generating solar energy and the capturing of methane gases from landfills so they don’t enter the atmosphere. This is just the first step. Like the meaning of our name in Surinamese, we’re starting over.

To move forward, we looked at the footprint we left behind

Adyen Impact: leveraging our technology to do good

People want to do good. They want to give to good causes. That's the central assumption behind Adyen Giving. We want to make it easy for our merchants to accept charitable donations from their shoppers. To do so, Adyen Giving lets merchants accept donations in the checkout process.

Our philosophy of making impact by leveraging our technology can be applied very widely — Adyen Giving is just the start.

Local initiatives

Recognizing the entrepreneurial spirit of our employees, we encourage our people to set up grassroots initiatives. All Local Initiatives are employee-led and touch upon at least one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
