In an attempt to reduce its environmental impact and integrate sustainability into its products, Google let the world now through a blog post on Monday by Anna Meegan, head of sustainability for consumer hardware, that Google has added recycled material into its hardware like Pixel phones, Google Home speakers, Chromecast, and accessories like phone cases and charging stands.
Meegan went on to outline Google’s sustainability commitments as follows:
1 All shipments going to or from customers will be carbon neutral by 2020
2 In 2022, 100-per-cent of “Made by Google” products will include recycled materials with a drive to maximize recycled content wherever possible.
3 Google will make technology that puts people first and expands access to the benefits of technology.
She added that from 2017 to 2018, carbon emissions from Google product shipments decreased by 40 per cent.
Google also has launched the Power Project, which they believe bring one million energy- and money-saving Nest thermostats to families in need by 2023. Much of the Nest product portfolio is built with post-consumer recycled plastic.
