Our most ambitious decade yet

Google is carbon neutral 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.

Measure your cloud carbon footprint

With the launch of Carbon Footprint reporting for Google Cloud, users can measure, track, and report on the carbon emissions associated with cloud. Companies everywhere can now track their progress towards ensuring a healthier planet. 

Smarter, more efficient data centers

Google data centers are twice as energy efficient as a typical data center, and we now deliver seven times more computing power for the same amount of electrical power than we did six years ago—but we know we can do more. We’re now 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.

The Right point says refurbish-slash-remanufacture. The bottom point says reuse-slash-redistribute. The left point says recycle.

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.
