Facebook renewable energy statistics: 2019
The world’s largest technology companies, such as Apple, Google and Facebook, are competing in pursuing an environmental strategy as well as products and services. To this end, companies are trying to achieve zero carbon emissions and even generate more energy from renewable sources than they consume.
Facebook set itself quite ambitious in this direction in 2018. When we came to 2021, Facebook stated that it would produce all the energy it needs from renewable sources. In the 2019 statistics announced, it is seen that Facebook is very close to this goal. Facebook announced in 2019 that 86 percent of its operations’ energy needs were met from renewable sources. When we think that this rate was 35 percent in 2015, we can say that Facebook took very ambitious steps.
In addition, greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 59 percent compared to 2017. This means that almost 22 thousand vehicles are completely withdrawn from traffic.
Facebook has received a green building certificate in some data centers.
