Google has a long-standing commitment to the environment and energy efficiency. It used ISO 50001 as a framework to establish a more structured and formalized energy management system and achieve recognition for its efforts. Bolstered by the programmeʼs success, the company continues to reduce its energy use and emissions through improved efficiency – leveraging new tools like machine learning – as well as by purchasing renewable power.
Googleʼs data centres are the engines of the Internet – they power all of our products and services and represent the vast majority of our energy consumption. When you use Google products like Search, Gmail and YouTube, the servers in their data centres do the work for you – around the clock and around the world. They work hard to minimize the environmental impact of their services, so that when you use their products, youʼre also using less energy.
For over a decade, Googleʼs been designing and building data centres that use 50 % of the energy of a typical data centre, and theyʼre always looking for ways to reduce their energy use even further. Theyʼve built our own super-efficient servers, invented more efficient ways to cool their data centres and are committed to powering 100 % of our operations with clean energy. Theyʼve signed contracts to purchase nearly 2.5 GW of renewable energy so far, making them the largest non-utility renewable energy purchaser in the world.
