In order to reduce carbon footprints Square has partnered with Watershed. Basically, Watershed is a company that powers climate programs for leading businesses, to provide ongoing support in measuring and reducing its carbon footprint.

Amrita Ahuja, Square Chief Financial Officer said that “Committing to be a net zero carbon contributor is consistent with our purpose of economic empowerment, as we’ll continue to work for our customers without contributing to longer-term climate issues.”
