Sustainability Features Investment
“We announced new ways we are helping 1 billion people make more sustainable choices. When it comes to enterprises, one of the most important sustainability choices is where to run your technology,” Pichai said. “IDC (International Data Corp.) predicts cloud migrations over the next four years could reduce carbon emissions by over 1 billion metric tons -- or the equivalent of removing 200 million cars off the road for a year.”
“We are proud that Google Cloud is the cleanest cloud in the industry,” he continued. “Earlier this year, we introduced a way for customers to choose the cleanest regions to run their workloads.”
At Next, Google also unveiled a new partnership initiative with independent software vendors, bringing more than 50 petabytes of satellite imagery, demographics, mobility and telematics data to the cloud for BigQuery and Earth Engine users. ISVs already working with Google Cloud on this include Carto, Climate Engine and Geotab, according to the company.
