Environmental Sustainability, Social Responsibility & Corporate Governance

We are committed to doing our part to create a more sustainable and equitable world

Environmental Sustainability

We commit to building a more sustainable future with our environmental efforts in all our BlackLine workplaces. We focus on energy, water, and waste efficiencies in our everyday operations. We have high environmental design standards for all construction and interiors.

BlackLine London Office

We create workplace environments with people in mind.

We are dedicated to developing spaces that promote health and fitness for our employees. We provide inclusionary facilities such as all-gender restrooms, wellness rooms for meditation and prayer, and healthy snack and beverage options. BlackLine also offers a hybrid work program where employees can choose to perform their work at home, the workplace, or just about anywhere.

We make workplace site selection decisions with the environment in mind.

When selecting a site for a new workplace, we prioritize community-enriching amenities that are within walking distance of the selected site. We seek building operators that demonstrate their commitment to ESG goals. In addition, we look for buildings that achieve high green building standards such as LEED, BREEAM, WELL, and Green Mark.

Social Responsibility

At BlackLine, we are committed to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. Our connections with one another are what give us purpose. We hold ourselves accountable for diversity, equity, and inclusion—supporting each other as we innovate.

Social Responsibility

We give back to the community.

Giving back to our community is part of our culture. We partner with charities to provide volunteering experiences that bring together BlackLine employees, partners, and clients. BlackLine matches employee donations to human services-focused charities and provides opportunities to give back through virtual and in-person volunteer opportunities.

We give back to the community

We support employee health and wellbeing so our people can thrive.

We take care of BlackLiners with competitive compensation, comprehensive health benefits for BlackLiners and their families, extensive career and personal development training, and a wide range of learning opportunities. We also offer unlimited paid time off, a flexible remote work environment, and dedicated programs to support mental and physical health and wellness.

We support employee health and wellbeing so our people can thrive.

We are proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with our suppliers.

Our procurement program delivers quality and value for our customers, and reflects our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2022, we began a formal supplier diversity program that focuses on creating opportunities for underrepresented vendors who share our values of excellence, service, and social responsibility.

We define underrepresented suppliers as small businesses (as defined by the U.S. Small Business Administration) and businesses that are at least 51% owned and operated by people in one or more of the following communities:

• Disabled
• LGBTQ
• Minority
• Veteran
• Women

Corporate Governance

We believe diverse backgrounds and perspectives enable quality leadership and financial performance. Our board of directors is made up of highly skilled individuals from the technology and business sectors. Women represent 50% of our board of directors, and 40% of our directors are from underrepresented minorities, as defined by Nasdaq Rule 5605(f). In addition, five of the 11 members of our executive leadership team are women.

Corporate Governance

We are committed to protecting customers’ data security and privacy.

BlackLine has a long history of being at the forefront of adoption of cloud security industry standards. We constantly monitor and manage risks from potential technology disruptions. We ensure we have robust infrastructure and policies in place, including partnering with world-class data center and cloud services providers.

“Keeping our clients’ and employees’ confidential information safe and private is our number one priority. Customers can rest assured that BlackLine will always be at the forefront when it comes to protecting and ensuring the security of both their corporate and personal data.”

Marc Huffman

CEO, BlackLine

Our board and leadership team play a key role in shaping our ESG approach.

Our board of directors’ Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees our programs relating to corporate responsibility and sustainability, and our board’s Compensation Committee oversees our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in our workforce.

In 2021, BlackLine formed a standing ESG Committee with executive sponsorship and participation from our Chief Legal and Administrative Officer and Chief People Officer. Working closely with its partners across the company, the ESG Committee is responsible for steering and reporting on BlackLine’s ESG strategy, programs, and targets.

We align our goals and shape our programs using recognized external sustainability initiatives and frameworks. BlackLine aligns its ESG initiatives with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and we use the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s framework to help us identify and prioritize the ESG programs that are most relevant to our business and our stakeholders.
