Kaltura's Commitment to Sustainability

Kaltura’s remote collaboration products improve sustainability and are carbon-reducing themselves

Our sustainable approach is your sustainable approach

We reduce the need for face-to-face meetings

Transportation and facilities management are the largest contributors to an enterprise’s carbon footprint. The GHG Protocol, used by 92% of Fortune 500 companies in 2016, provides a set of standards, guidance, and tools for organizations to measure their carbon emissions. This protocol teaches us that the carbon footprint from attending in-person events can be substantial.

Kaltura’s virtual meeting and collaboration tools reduce the need for face-to-face meetings, directly reducing the need for long-distance travel as well as routine local commutes.

We minimize your company's carbon footprint

With fewer employees routinely in the office, facilities’ footprints are reduced, thanks to lower energy requirements for heating, cooling, and illumination. The same is true for events such as in-person conferences that require attendees to travel. A recent case study found that conference attendance is responsible for 35% of the carbon footprint and concluded that videoconferencing could significantly reduce emissions by 44%. Another study of an online conference revealed that if it had taken place physically, the travel-induced footprint would have been 7,188 tons of CO2 compared to only 524 tons for electricity and heating.

We utilize sustainable cloud environments

Kaltura’s products and services operate on the AWS cloud, and benefit from Amazon’s commitment to sustainability. AWS is committed to energy efficiency, and 100% renewable energy by 2025.

Kaltura’s business operations utilize Microsoft Azure and Office365. Microsoft is also committed to sustainability and will be using 100% renewable energy sources by 2025.

We continually optimize for energy efficiency

Kaltura’s energy utilization is driven mainly by the computation and storage required to maintain video archives for our clients.  We try to optimize this by evaluating new video formats and CODECS, to reduce computational and storage requirements associated with processing and maintaining the video archive.  We also regularly evaluate the state of the consumer market and improve the transcoding technologies to maintain the minimum amount of video required to reach your audience.  Our content lifecycle management tools automate retention policies that minimize the size of the video archive. In combination, these reduce our computational and storage footprints, and corresponding energy requirements

“At Kaltura, as more of our clients pivot towards virtual events and remote learning options for sustainability reasons among others, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure that our video solutions have a minimal environmental impact. Our Video Experience cloud solution was not only able to support lowering our clients’ carbon footprint during the pandemic but will continue to do so more efficiently moving forward.”
