In a step to reduce its carbon footprint, Google plans to run its offices and data centres on renewable energy by 2030.
Reportedly, the company aims to be carbon-free. Only last year, they bought 1.6 gigawatts of renewable energy which is the biggest purchase for the same.
Google happens to be the first major company to drop its lifetime net carbon footprint to zero by buying high-quality carbon offsets.
Not just that, they plan to fund tree planting, cutting deals with 500 governments all over the world in an attempt to reduce 1 gigaton carbon emissions per year by 2030.
Sundar Pichai, the CEO of the company shared that:
The problem is so immense, many of us need to lead the way and show solutions. We’re one small player in this but we can set an example.
If everyone does their bit, saving the planet will be a lot easier.
