Governance - Accountable and transparent

We launched our ESG program in May of 2020. We established a simple and strong ESG structure to provide strategic direction for this program, against which we intend to review our progress over the coming years. Our ESG efforts are led by our executive leadership team and are reviewed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of our Board of Directors. We have always committed to be accountable and transparent about our successes and challenges, and will continue to do so in the years ahead. We report annually on our progress in our ESG Fact Sheet.

Okta's material ESG issues

We worked with external experts and internal stakeholders to define the material issues that form the foundation for Okta's ESG program. We organized these issues by our three key stakeholder groups: customers, employees, and communities:

In FY2022, Okta worked with a third-party human rights consultancy to complete Okta’s first corporate-wide, human rights impact assessment (HRIA).

The objective was to identify human rights impacts most salient to employees, customers, suppliers, and communities directly and indirectly impacted by Okta’s business operations, products and services, and relationships. We interviewed internal and external stakeholders to assess Okta’s business against internationally recognized human rights standards and principles, including the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Several key human-rights-related impacts were identified, such as those related to the right to privacy, non-discrimination in the workplace, responsible product use, equitable and accessible products, and excessive working hours.
