Google has been carbon neutral since 2007 and, in 2017, became the first company of its size to achieve 100% annual renewable energy matching. 100% renewable energy matching for four consecutive years has helped Google significantly reduce its operational carbon emissions. To achieve full decarbonization, Google is aiming for 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030. That means sourcing local clean energy for every hour of operations, everywhere. Google is actively collaborating across industries to accelerate innovation in three areas: electricity purchasing and consumption; carbon-free energy technologies; and policy advancements that drive clean energy access and adoption.
