A core part of our sustainability strategy is addressing and adapting to the impacts of climate. This will require innovative solutions that build on the world’s understanding of how it affects businesses and local communities. Leveraging the capabilities of our platform, we are accelerating our work to advance sustainability solutions that drive climate action through our core products.
Climate Science Center
In 2020, we launched the Climate Science Center (CSC) to increase access to science-based and dynamic climate information to drive awareness and inspire more people to take action.
Last year, we expanded the CSC reach to more than 100 countries, attracted more than 3.8 million followers, and served more than 100,000 daily visitors.
Tackling Climate Misinformation
We partnered with experts from Monash, Yale and Cambridge Universities to directly address climate myths. The Facts About Climate Change section from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication includes misconceptions about the existence and causes of global warming, as well as the impact it has on humans and other life on Earth.
Building the Metaverse
At Connect 2021, our CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Meta, which brings together our apps and technologies under one new company brand. The metaverse is an immersive, embodied successor to the mobile internet.
We are developing exciting new technologies that will help people connect and explore in the metaverse, including our Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Wearable hardware technologies and devices. Our net zero commitment is inclusive of these products, and we are committed to building the metaverse sustainably.
