One of the pillars of our company culture is transparency. As such, we provide an annual report to evaluate our performance on environmental, social and governance issues. Our reporting is framed by the well-recognized SASB standards. Below are selected highlights from our ESG report.View our ESG Report →
Great stories are universal: they can come from anywhere and be loved everywhere. Which is why we’re investing in productions from many different countries, including Spain (La Casa de Papel and Elite), India (Sacred Games), Korea (Kingdom), United Kingdom (Sex Education), Taiwan (Nowhere Man), France (Family Business), Germany (Dark), Mexico (La Casa de las Flores), Thailand (The Stranded), Turkey (The Protector), Brazil (Sintonia) and Denmark (The Rain).
To effectively serve our members, who come from all around the world, we strive for a diverse workforce where employees - whatever their background - can do the best work of their careers. We’ve made progress over the last few years to increase the diversity of our workforce. As of 2019, 49% of our global employees are women and 49% of our management are women.
We’re investing in renewable energy projects (and carbon offsets) all around the world to reduce our impact on the environment. These projects span 15 U.S. states and 20 countries. In 2019, 100 percent of our estimated direct and indirect non-renewable power use was matched with renewable energy certificates and carbon offsets.
Inclusion & Diversity
At Netflix, we believe that great storytelling not only entertains but can also challenge prejudice and increase empathy and understanding. We work with a wide range of creators to help increase the diversity of our content and to ensure more members have the opportunity to see their experiences on screen. A recent study by the University of Southern California Annenberg Inclusion Initiative (“Inclusion in the Director’s Chair”) found that 20 percent of Netflix’s original US scripted films in 2019 were directed by women, nearly double the rest of the industry.
