How Google is More Green Than You

How Google is More Green than You

Like many companies, Google has made an effort to reduce its carbon footprint and to avoid negative impacts on the environment. The efforts of Google have made it one of the greenest companies around.

Google’s Green Side

In 2007, Google reached its goal of becoming carbon neutral. To sustain this ongoing effort, they have installed enough solar panels to power approximately 1,000 average homes, which offsets 30 percent of peak electricity use for the facilities. Google shuttles are used by 1,470 employees. Google’s shuttles are fueled by B-20 biodiesel to get employees to work each day. These Bay Area shuttles take an estimated 660 cars off the road each year.

However, on their current “No Line On The Horizon” tour, they have been accused of hypocrisy by environmental groups as they transport their masses of equipment around the world.
