Google Announces 100 Percent Carbon Neutral Shipping Goals
Date: 07 August 2019
Google has recently shared their set of hardware and services sustainability commitments which consisted off making 100 percent of products made by google to include recycled materials with an aim to drive and maximise recycled content wherever is possible.
The company has also announced that by 2020, 100 percent of all shipments going to or from customers will be carbon neutral.
In a quote from google ‘These commitments will build on the foundation and progress we’ve already made. In 2018, we began publishing our product environmental reports, which help everyone understand exactly what our products are made of, how they’re built and how they get shipped to you. And from 2017 to 2018, our carbon emissions for product shipments decreased by 40 percent. We’ve also launched our Power Project, which will bring one million energy- and money-saving Nest thermostats to families in need by 2023, and built much of our Nest product portfolio with post-consumer recycled plastic.’
