We're investing in a brighter future for everyone
We’re going far beyond sourcing clean energy for Google’s operations. To foster sustainability at scale, we’re creating tools, developing technologies, and sharing insights that enable everyone to help bring about a carbon-free world.LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW WE’RE SOLVING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The Google Environmental Report
To meet the challenges posed by climate change and the need for resource efficiency, we work to empower everyone — businesses, governments, non-profit organizations, communities, and individuals — to use Google technology to create a more sustainable world. This report is a chance for us to reflect on what we’ve achieved, the lessons we’ve learned along the way, and the opportunities and challenges we see ahead.
The internet is 24/7 – carbon-free energy should be too
Sustainability has been a core value for us since Google was founded two decades ago. We were the first major company to become carbon neutral in 2007. We were the first major company to match our energy use with 100 percent renewable energy in 2017. We operate the cleanest global cloud in the industry, and we’re the world’s largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy. In our third decade of climate action, we are going even further to help build a carbon-free future for everyone.
