Google eliminates carbon footprint, targets carbon-free energy by 2030

Monday 14 September 2020 | 15:55 CET | News
Google has announced the elimination of its entire carbon footprint thanks to an investment in "high-quality carbon offsets". In a statement, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the company first became carbon-neutral in 2007 and has now compensated for all of the carbon it created up to that point. "We're pleased to be the first major company to get this done, today," said Pichai.
