From slashing carbon emissions to renewable energy investments and responsible water usage, here’s what five IT leaders are doing right now to combat climate change.

Getting Greener

Tech companies are notoriously heavy users of electricity and water to power their operations, from large campuses and manufacturing plants, to data center facilities. But many of these same companies that are consuming a sizable amount of resources are stepping up their green games with commitments to help combat climate change and give back what they’ve taken.

Some of the largest IT leaders in the world, including Cisco Systems and Google, are pledging to reduce their carbon footprints by investing in sustainable tech strategies, and even helping their technology and supply chain partners do the same. The two biggest telecom companies in the U.S. – AT&T and Verizon – have also made recent investments in renewable energy sources to cut down on their own contributions of greenhouse gases.

From carbon-neutral pledges to renewable energy and responsible water usage, here’s five recent announcements from technology leaders that are working on being part of the climate change solution right now.
