We invite other colleagues from a similar professional field to attend regular meetings during which discussions, knowledge sharing, experiences, and advice are talked about. We also organize a series of regular events called Big Tech Energy to discuss the latest technologies, various challenges, and discoveries in our daily work or in the global engineering community.
Oxylabs encourage women to try out IT and engineering careers. We support mentoring programs and spread the word about possibilities for females to change their careers to the IT sector. Eleven women who have participated in the Women Go Tech (WGT) program course received a "Discover Technologies" certificate. After successfully finishing the program, they all got a job at Oxylabs, either in tech or non-tech-related roles.
Each year, OxyCon connects top industry experts from across the globe, providing a platform for them to explore the most pressing issues and advancements in web scraping. Coming from different industries and backgrounds, web scraping experts share their experiences and answer the most pressing questions.
In 2022, Oxylabs launched a global pro bono initiative, "Project 4β", dedicated to solving critical research questions and missions at the scale of global public web data. Through "4β", Oxylabs supplies the know-how, infrastructure, and resources pro bono to academic institutions, researchers, and organizations.
We have collaborated with i2Coalition to establish the Ethical Web Data Collection Initiative (EWDCI) and build public trust on the web.The EWDCI is dedicated to serving as the voice of the industry, collaboratively strengthening public trust in the practice of Data Aggregation, promoting ethical guidelines, and helping businesses make informed data aggregation choices.

The Board comprises leading figures in the machine learning, AI, and data science industries, many of whom have experience working for highly reputable organizations such as NASA, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and UCL.
In order to strengthen the Lithuanian startup ecosystem and to share our experience, motivation, and inspiration, Oxylabs joined the Unicorns of Lithuania. This is a startup community with the mission to mobilize and encourage startups and the public to build the future of Lithuania – a successful modern country based on a high-value-added economy.
In 2022, Oxylabs received one European patent, which was validated and is currently valid in Germany, the UK, Lithuania, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Hong Kong. Also, Oxylabs was granted 27 new patents in the USA. By the end of 2022, Oxylabs, in total, has obtained more than 50 patents.
Scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 emissions should be calculated and reduced in order to achieve real impact on climate change mitigation. This year we have calculated scope 1 and 2 as well as added some emission categories from Scope 3. We intend to calculate other Scope 3 emissions in the future. Our emissions were calculated according to the methodology of the internationally recognised Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard.
Based on the final results we will assess possibilities to set our decarbonization targets to be aligned with the Paris Agreement.
According to our GHG emission numbers, we made our first climate contribution for a total of 800 carbon credits to cover at least our GHG emissions calculated in 2021 and 2022. We believe, however, that the most important goal for the company is to find ways to reduce its own emissions. Before we can enable such decarbonisation plans we invest in nature restoration projects. As carbon removal will play an essential role in reaching global climate targets, we chose to support the nature-based project in Peru as it prevents deforestation in Peru's most biodiverse Amazon rainforests.
We moved our headquarters in Vilnius (Lithuania) to Cyber City, a brand new office building complex that has revitalized an underutilized city district. Now our premises are in the BREEAM and Fitwel certification process, which demonstrate the quality, performance, and sustainability credentials of the buildings.
The Cyber City office is 100% powered by renewable energy and has other various features which help reduce energy consumption and achieve energy efficiency.
