Our sustainability strategy

Kyndryl's commitment to environmental sustainability is a fundamental part of our business operations. We recognize the impact we have on the environment and our responsibility to minimize our greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and promote sustainable practices.

Kyndryl’s corporate environmental sustainability policy outlines our commitment and anchors our goal of becoming a sustainability leader across all business activities, products, and services.

The management of Kyndryl’s environmental sustainability program is focused on four strategic priorities. These priorities were established in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Kyndryl’s business imperatives, and our stakeholders’ needs.
