Reducing environmental impact with the cleanest cloud in the industry.
Our most ambitious decade yet
Google is carbon neutral for our operations today, but aiming higher: our goal is to run on carbon-free energy, 24/7, at all of our data centers by 2030. Plus, we’re sharing technology, methods, and funding to enable organizations around the world to transition to more carbon-free and sustainable systems.
Introducing the Carbon Sense suite
We've built a collection of tools to help you accurately report the carbon emissions associated with your Google Cloud usage and take action to reduce your carbon footprint. The Carbon Sense suite brings together features from multiple Google Cloud products, like Active Assist and Carbon Footprint, to help users everywhere make progress towards ensuring a healthier planet.
Smarter, more efficient data centers
On average, a Google data center is twice as energy efficient as a typical enterprise data center, and we now deliver five times as much computing power for the same amount of electrical power, compared with five years ago—but we know we can do more. We're sharing performance data to move the entire industry forward, and help businesses get greener.
Solving for a healthier supply chain
Our circular principles affect how we design products, buildings, and infrastructure, helping us make smarter use of the Earth’s resources. We design out waste and pollution, keep materials in use, and promote more sustainable supply chains.
Restoring our planet, together
Our partners are already using Google AI and ML to drive important climate and conservation efforts, including restoring our oceans, forests, and wildlife.
Technology that helps you do more for the planet
We meet the challenges posed by climate change and the need for resource efficiency by working to empower everyone—businesses, governments, nonprofit organizations, communities, and individuals—to use Google technology to create a more sustainable world.
