Our Environmental, Social and Governance Commitments
In a time like no other – with communities around the world tested by extraordinary social, environmental, economic, and public health challenges – the employees of Activision Blizzard have served the global community by keeping people connected safely and using our powerful global platform to comfort, inspire, and draw communities together. Our mission – connecting and engaging the world through epic entertainment – has never been more important.
With that backdrop, we are pleased to present Activision Blizzard’s first annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report. Our culture values humility. Celebrating accomplishment for that which we consider our collective responsibility is not something we do easily. We will highlight our achievements in the service of our mission and our commitments to champion our people and players, advance more diverse and inclusive communities, and protect the planet.
While the report is new, our commitment to these practices is not. I could not be prouder of the people and partners of Activision Blizzard who have risen to the occasion over the last year to support each other, our communities, and our planet.
Please find featured stories of our commitments through this website and explore the full scope of our programs and practices in our ESG Report.

Championing Our People
Executive Vice President of Development
“It’s important across any industry, and at any level, to have representation and diversity.
We have long known that our people are what make Activision Blizzard special, and that inspired innovation is only possible when our employees can be their most authentic selves. We strive to provide the opportunities and resources to unlock their potential, engage, grow and give back across the entirety of the employee lifecycle, from candidates to alumni. We are committed to providing opportunities and resources to unlock our employees’ potential through our employee engagement efforts, our benefits programs, and our approach to diversity and inclusion.

Advancing More Diverse and Inclusive Communities
Our games can responsibly influence popular culture, eliminate stereotypes, celebrate differences, and encourage players to embrace tolerance and understanding. Inclusive game and content design are central to who we are. We commit to crafting the wonderfully diverse and accepting world we hope to see and to protecting the privacy and safety of our players, including by eliminating disruptive player behavior from our platforms.
The flagship of our corporate social engagement efforts is the Call of Duty Endowment (The Endowment), which helps veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value vets bring to the workforce. The Endowment is well on its way to hitting the goal of getting 100,000 veterans into high paying jobs by 2024.
The Endowment is just one example of the ways we seek to Advance More Inclusive and Diverse Communities.
Protecting the Planet
We understand that our business impacts our global and local environment and that we have an obligation to operate sustainably. We commit to the well-being of our planet by taking steps to reduce our own environmental footprint and to promote sustainable behaviors throughout our supply chain.
Our ongoing conversion to a more digital business is enabling us to set and achieve important sustainability goals.
This year, we will establish baselines and set quantitative targets to measure our future progress to protect the planet.
We have already reduced plastic packaging by 5.5 million pounds over the past 5 years, and we commit to bringing our greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.
