Facebook, in an attempt to combat climate change, has announced that it is deducting its greenhouse gas emission by 75 per cent and is working on making its operations run on 100 per cent renewable energy by the end of 2020.
According to The Verge, the company began the efforts in 2013 and has signed contracts for more than 3 giga watts of new solar and wind energy ever since. In a blog post released in 2013 the company wrote, "Our long-term focus on efficiency, smart design, and energy sources mean that over time we expect our emission growth to slow, our energy mix to get cleaner, and our carbon intensity to decrease."
According to the social networking website, they have already met their 2015 goal of running 50 per cent of its facilities using renewable energy by 2018.
