Global climate strikes continue from today to next week, with participants protesting in more than 150 countries around the world. Technology companies seem to be fully supporting the campaign, Amazon is investing heavily in renewable energy, and today Google announced the largest renewable energy purchase plan in history. "Sustainable development has always been one of Google's core values," said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google. Over the years, we have been trying to reduce the carbon footprint of operations, build products based on people and the planet, and drive changes in the size of Google's supply chain. "
The record-breaking renewable energy purchase program, including 18 energy deals, will add nearly 1600 megawatts of electricity to Google's renewable energy portfolio, including solar and wind projects, with power generation facilities in the Americas, South America and Europe.
