The TaskUs executive team and Board of Directors is deeply committed to showing progress in the areas of Environmental, Social and Governance.
Sustainability has historically been and continues to be a key consideration to company operations at TaskUs. We began as a fully cloud-based organization, allowing for an asset-light approach to working with clients. We focus on achieving efficiency in our facilities by managing for improved seat utilization across our footprint. We have various programs in facilities to encourage recycling, efficient energy usage, and water conservation as well as policies to limit the presence of single-use plastics in our sites. More recently, primarily due to the global pandemic, we have operated with approximately 90% of our teammates working remotely, reducing emissions associated with commuting for our teammates. We expect to utilize a partial work-from-home model moving forward, which should allow us to grow our team faster than we grow our footprint over time.
Diversity, equity and inclusion is deeply rooted in our culture and values. We aim to drive innovation and a higher business performance by: sourcing talent from diverse backgrounds, ensuring our practices and processes enable leaders to make inclusive decisions, nurturing an inclusive environment where we celebrate uniqueness and authenticity, and positively impacting the communities in which we operate. TaskUs encourages individuals of all walks of life regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, or social standing to join our team and add to the richness of our diverse culture.
The Board of Directors of TaskUs (the "Company") sets high standards for the Company's employees, officers and directors. Implicit in this philosophy is the importance of sound corporate governance. It is the duty of the Board of Directors to serve as a prudent fiduciary for shareholders and to oversee the management of the Company's business. To fulfill its responsibilities and to discharge its duty, the Board of Directors follows the procedures and standards that are set forth in guidelines, which are available for download on the Governance page of our website.
