Google CEO Sundar Pichai Promise to Carbon-free Energy by 2030

Today Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet state that, “The world must act now if we’re going to avert the worst consequences of climate change.” In 2007, Google was the first leading-edge large technology company to become completely neutral, and Google was the first company to operate 100 percent renewable energy in 2017.

Google wants to run 24/7 carbon-free energy to all its data centers and campuses around the world. Google data centers power to its products and services, that services today we’ve relied on. This will mean every email you send through Gmail, every question you ask Google Search, every YouTube video you watch, and every route you take using Google Maps, is supplied by clean energy every hour of every day.

Google claims to help create a carbon-free future for the third decade of climate action.

  • We’re eliminating our entire carbon legacy, effective today.
  • We are the first major company to make a commitment to operate on 24/7 carbon-free energy in all our data centers and campuses worldwide. This is far more challenging than the traditional approach of matching energy usage with renewable energy, but we’re working to get this done by 2030.
  • We’re investing in technologies to help our partners and people all over the world make sustainable choices. For example, we are investing in manufacturing regions to enable 5 GW of new carbon-free energy, helping 500 cities reduce their carbon emissions and finding new ways to empower 1 billion people through our products.
  • We estimate that the commitments we’re making today will directly generate more than 20,000 new jobs in clean energy and associated industries, in America and around the world, by 2025.

Google will use 5 GW of new carbon-free energy across the regions by 2030 through investment. Google is investing more than $5 billion in clean energy investments, avoid the number of emissions equal to taking more than 1 million cars off the road every year, and create more than 8,000 clean energy jobs. That will help more than 500 cities to reduce 1 gigaton of carbon emission annually by 2030.

Cities were created 70 percent of the world’s emissions, Google Environmental Insights Explorer will help more than 100 cities to track and reduce their building and transportation carbon emission and maximize their renewable energy use, by informing them of their solar potential. So Google expanding this tool to 3,000 cities worldwide from today. Google also committing to help more than 500 cities and local governments globally reduce a total of 1 gigaton of carbon emissions annually by 2030.

“A few years ago flooding devastated Chennai, where I grew up. Seeing the images of the city—which had experienced extreme drought for so many years of my life—covered in flood waters, really made the impacts of climate change feel much closer to home,” said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet. “Last week, many of us woke up to orange skies in Northern California as wildfires continue to rage up and down the West Coast. I know others in Australia and Brazil have recently experienced similar events, and sadly they won’t be the last,” he added.
