META SUSTAINABILITY

For a better reality

We believe sustainability is about more than operating responsibly. It is an opportunity to support the communities we are a part of and have a positive impact on the world.

Sustainability Report

We are scaling our positive impact by tracking metrics that matter. We prioritize areas where Meta can have the biggest impact on both our own operations and on the communities around us. Download our latest Sustainability Report to learn more.

Leading the way on climate change

We are in the business of building better realities—and not just virtual ones.

We envision a just and equitable transition to a zero-carbon economy, and we are working with others to scale inclusive solutions that help create a healthier planet for all, ensuring that no one is left behind.

We will not realize this vision on our own. We see our role as protecting people and the planet through responsible operations—minimizing our energy, emissions and water impact, while protecting workers and the environment in our supply chain.

At the same time, we collaborate with community members, climate action leaders and scientists to innovate beyond what is possible today. We are leveraging our core products and services to enable access to climate science information and to accelerate action-oriented resources for tomorrow.

The possibilities our technology will unlock for people only matter if we have a safe and thriving planet.

Our approach

Our strategy is anchored by three components — how we operate, what we create and how we collaborate — to help drive change across the many communities in which we operate.

Technology vs. Trees: What The Debate Over Carbon Removal Is Missing

If you pay attention to voluntary carbon markets, particularly if you’ve been working with them for more than a few years like I have, you may have found the past year of seemingly constant media coverage and debate to be rather dizzying.
