Our commitment to
sustainability

Since the inception of YY Ventures, we have been mindful of how our operations affect our environment, and have taken a very active role in ensuring sustainability practices every day at our office, and the events we host. For example, we use organic, local, and seasonal products at all our events. Any leftover food is recovered or used to produce vermicompost fertilizer. Additionally, we serve coffee and tea produced by responsible producers where the farmers and workers get a fair market price.

Every day at YY Ventures, we ensure that there are no single-use plastic products such as plastic bottles, banners, badges, etc. and we focus on using organic or recyclable products carefully sourced from trusted producers.

We are on a daily quest to explore and refine our ways to make life at YY better, and strive to build a workplace that is more connected, collaborative, transparent, flexible, and inclusive for people to work in.

Since the start of your journey with YY Ventures, you will have the opportunity to drive our mission to create a world of three zeros alongside your dynamic team. If you are passionate about doing your best work with joYY, we would love for you to join our ever-growing family!
