Tech Giants going green
In a recent article published by the Financial Times ‘How tech went big on green energy,’ Leslie Hook and Dave Lee discuss the pledges made by Fortune 100 Tech companies to combat climate change. Tech companies are large consumers of electricity with Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple using more than 45 terawatt-hours of electricity every year, which is about the same amount as the whole of New Zealand. It’s no wonder that they are taking steps to try and reduce their electricity usage, or use greener energy. While the everyday person can make their home more energy efficient by having an electrical inspection carried out by one of the best electrician in West Lake Hills, for example, tech companies have to do a lot more. With Google being the first company to confirm a clean energy deal in 2010, this sparked a competition between Tech companies trying to embrace an industrial concept that promotes sustainable resource productivity.
