Opposing racism

Patrick Collison Leadership

Racism is antithetical to Stripe’s mission. Our founding purpose is the broader, fairer distribution of opportunity—opportunity accessible to and inclusive of everyone, everywhere. While no person’s or company’s statement will change society by itself, that limitation shouldn’t paralyze. Social change requires coordinated, broad participation.

Stripe’s first carbon removal purchases

Ryan Orbuch Climate

To mitigate the threat of climate change, the majority of climate models agree that the world will need to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere on the scale of approximately 6 gigatons of CO2 per year by 2050. That’s roughly the equivalent of the United States’ annual emissions.

Last year, Stripe announced our Negative Emissions Commitment, pledging at least $1M per year to pay, at any price, for the direct removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its sequestration in secure long-term storage. We’ve since built a small team within Stripe to focus on creating a market for carbon removal by being an early customer for promising carbon removal technologies.

Decrement carbon: Stripe's negative emissions commitment

As part of Stripe’s environmental program, we fully offset our greenhouse gas emissions by purchasing verified carbon offsets. Starting this year, we’re going a step further. In addition to our offset program, we are committing to pay, at any available price, for the direct removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its sequestration in secure, long-term storage. We’re announcing this commitment to solicit technology partners and to urge other companies to follow suit.

Stripe Sessions

One of our favorite things about working at Stripe is that we serve some of the most demanding customers: high-growth, technology businesses, rapidly expanding around the world, inventing new business models along the way. In some ways, that makes our job harder—it’s tough to stay ahead! But in other ways it makes things a lot simpler. As we think about the next few years of Stripe’s development, we don’t have to overcomplicate things. We can set our roadmap directly based on what we hear from our users.

Stripe Home

At Stripe, we’ve always been intentional about how we communicate, share information, and stay connected. Back when Stripe was smaller, it was easy for this to happen automatically. But by the time we hit around 150 people, it became hard to know everyone’s name. So at a company hackathon, a few Stripes created People, a directory to help Stripes meet and get to really know each other.

Introducing Increment

Will Larson Engineering

As software becomes more important in the world, the practice and art of software is becoming more important too. A lot has been written about how individual engineers can be more effective. We've noticed that much less has been written about how software engineering teams can be more effective.

Why some businesses aren’t allowed

Danika Lyon Payment Acceptance

We’re building business infrastructure. As with other kinds of infrastructure (like hosting or electricity), we'd like to make it available to as broad a set of users as possible. While we may personally like some businesses on Stripe and disapprove of others, we want to make as few judgements as possible as a company. The world doesn’t need more gatekeepers.

Network Neutrality

Stripe works with businesses of every size. Among them are thousands of startups: companies that challenge legacy business models and upend incumbents. The FCC plans to vote tomorrow on whether to approve FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s plan to divide the internet into fast lanes for toll-paying incumbents and slower channels for everyone else. This plan would make it harder for new businesses to succeed.
