Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

Google is carbon neutral today, but aiming higher: their goal is to run on carbon-free energy, 24/7, at all of our data centers by 2030. Plus, they are sharing technology, methods, and funding to enable organizations around the world to transition to more carbon-free and sustainable systems. A Google data center is twice as energy efficient as a typical enterprise data center, and now delivers six times as much computing power for the same amount of electrical power, compared with five years ago. Google are sharing performance data to move the entire industry forward, and help businesses get greener.
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

Google provided a lot of features for free during the COVID-19 lockdown so that businesses could collaborate and communicate remotely.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

Google's circular principles affect how we design products, buildings, and infrastructure, helping them make smarter use of the Earth’s resources. Google design out waste and pollution, keep materials in use, and promote more sustainable supply chains.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Google is committed to continuing to make diversity, equity, and inclusion part of everything they do—from how they build their products to how they build their workforce. Google is growing to fulfill that vision. In the past few years, they’ve doubled in size—today, they have more than 100,000 employees in 170 cities spanning nearly 60 countries. Operating at this scale brings an elevated level of responsibility to everything they do—including a workforce that's more representative of their users, and a workplace that creates a sense of belonging for everyone. View the diversity report via the link below:


As technology becomes more and more integral to everything we do, it can sometimes distract us from the things that matter most to us. Google believes technology should improve life, not distract from it. They’re committed to giving everyone the tools they need to develop their own sense of digital wellbeing. So that life, not the technology in it, stays front and center.
