Google is jumping on the sustainable bandwagon and pledging to use recycled materials in all of it’s hardware by 2022 and by 2020 for it’s deliveries to be carbon neutral. A tech giant of such caliber taking a stand against emissions and pollution are solid steps in the right direction.
Google will be using recycled plastics and metals in their many hardware products in the future. This includes Pixel smartphones, Google Home devices and even Chromebooks. The materials will come from plastic bottles and other sources.
The commitment to become carbon neutral in deliveries doesn’t mean that they won’t generate carbon. Instead it likely means that they will be taking advantage of some of the many offset programs available to cancel out the emissions they do generate. Although if the company creates a delivery system that does not cause emissions at all, that would be even better but they’ll probably need more time than just a year and some change to do it.
