Case study:
Google’s goal to operate on 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030

Google became operationally carbon neutral in 2007 and, in 2017, the first company of its size to match 100% of its global, annual electricity consumption with renewable energy. Google is now on a path to decarbonize its electricity supply completely to operate on 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy, everywhere, by 2030 and, alongside SEforALL, launched the 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy Compact in 2021.
