At Facebook, sharing and collaborating is in our DNA — and we know by working in the open and collaborating with others, we can advance sustainable practices globally. We’re proud to play a role in bringing together the industry to pursue ambitious goals in order to protect the environment – including our commitments to the We Are Still In coalition to achieve 100% renewable energy and reduce GHG emissions 75% by 2020.
In 2011, we helped found the Open Compute Project (OCP), a community of engineers around the world whose mission is to foster more openness, more innovation, and a greater focus on energy efficiency in computing technologies.
Through OCP, we’ve shared the full physical layers of our data center stack with the community including the building, cooling, power, battery, open rack, networking, compute, and storage. By open sourcing our hyper-efficient designs, we enable companies of all sizes to use energy more efficiently and drive efficiency improvements across the industry. Today, there are nearly 200 OCP members.
