We're committed to reducing our greenhouse gas footprint by 75% and reaching 100% renewable energy in 2020

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.

We believe sustainability is about more than operating responsibly. It’s an opportunity to support the communities we’re a part of and make a positive impact on the world. That’s why we’re working to minimize our energy, emissions and water impact, protect workers and the environment in our supply chain, and partner with others to develop and share solutions for a more sustainable world beyond our operations.

“Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement is bad for the environment, bad for the economy and it puts our children's future at risk. For our part, we've committed that every new data center we build will be supported by 100 percent renewable energy. Stopping climate change is something we can only do as a global community, and we have to act together before it's too late.”
Mark Zuckerberg
CEO, Facebook

Our data centers are among the most efficient facilities in the world. In 2018, our operations achieved 75% renewable energy and a 44% reduction in GHG emissions from 2017 levels. We also work with others to increase access to renewable energy and create green tariffs as part of our effort to make a positive impact on the world.

Innovation for our world

We’re proud to collaborate on sustainability solutions that bring the world closer together. Our partnerships with companies, nonprofits, and coalitions are helping to drive hardware innovation, improve access to electricity, and catalyze climate action across the globe.

Collaboration for good

We’re scaling our positive impact by tracking metrics that matter. Focusing on areas where we can have the biggest positive impact on both our own operations and on the communities around us is a priority for Facebook.

Sustainability in numbers
