Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2021

As the world marches to ensure a safe and healthy climate for our planet, going green is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for companies to survive in the near future’s business environment.

The latest evidence upholding this phenomenon comes from an announcement made by Google last week, stating that the company intends to spend more than $2 billion in new renewable energy infrastructure across the world. The clean energy deal is believed to be the largest in corporate history and will include 18 separate agreements to supply Google with electricity from wind and solar projects across the US, South America, and Europe.

Following the purchase, the search engine’s green energy portfolio will grow by 40 percent, giving the company access to an extra 1.6 gigawatt of clean energy – the equivalent capacity of a million solar rooftops.

The deals were announced ahead of last Friday’s Global Climate Strike, where millions of voices, including those of thousands of tech workers, resonated worldwide in a call for climate justice.
