Joining the ZEROgrid initiative

We’ve seen the impact corporate renewable energy commitments have had in adding clean energy to the grid, and we’re proud to partner with Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and other leading companies to broaden the scope of that ambition to help create the clean, reliable, and affordable grid of the future. This new effort, the Zero Emissions, Reliability Optimized Grid or ZEROgrid, is focused on building a comprehensive, collaborative new framework to better harness the efforts of the voluntary sustainability market. The initiative is intended to maximize grid reliability and emissions reduction by driving more impactful clean energy procurement, and also increased corporate engagement on policy, investment, R&D and operations.

Since 2020, Meta’s operations have been supported with 100% renewable energy, in part through our efforts to bring new renewable projects to the grid. The ZEROgrid coalition will develop a roadmap and action plan to foster increased corporate climate investments that maximize the potential for moving to​ ​a truly ZERO emissions grid. In addition to our 100% renewable energy target, Meta’s goal is to achieve net zero emissions across our value chain in 2030. ZEROgrid is focused on making corporate purchases of clean energy more impactful, and on growing corporate engagement beyond purchases of clean energy, to include other supporting activities that will help drive further impact.

Every tree counts

The increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and associated climate change has had a dramatic impact on the Earth’s biosphere, ranging from drought and wildfires to the loss of biodiversity. Forests play a central role in the carbon dioxide cycle, pulling carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing the carbon in their biomass.
