Our Product

MongoDB views sustainability as an important design principle and an essential part of the software development lifecycle. We offer a number of features that can be used to minimize our customers' carbon footprint.Explore MongoDB Atlas

MongoDB Atlas Serverless

MongoDB Atlas Serverless instances are optimized to scale the underlying infrastructure as needed, reducing operational overhead, energy use, and time to market.


Green Leaf Icon

To provide transparency and encourage eco-friendly setups, we have added a green leaf icon to indicate which of our 80+ cloud regions are renewable-powered.

Our Operations

We are working to make sustainability a core component of how we operate, and have begun to integrate it into our overall business strategy. We believe that environmentally responsible operating practices will serve to benefit our stockholders, partners, customers, and employees alike.

Responsible purchasing

We have instituted a supplier code of conduct, and limited the purchase of single-use products within our offices.



We encourage employees to choose green options when traveling, and have instituted a localized event strategy to limit both employee and customer footprint for our events.


Energy conservation

We exclusively procure LED lights and limit energy consumption from Zoom screens and laptops when not in use.
