As Seen On

Google Cloud’s Sustainable Initiatives

Sustainability is gradually taking center stage in the corporate world, seeping steadily into companies’ mission statements and core objectives. In an era already defined by seismic technological shifts, it comes as no surprise that sustainability converges with tech solutions for creating greener and more eco-conscious business practices.

One particular beacon leading the way for sustainable solutions comes in the form of Google Cloud. A true proponent of the potential housed within AI and the boundless capabilities of Information Technology, Google Cloud is wielding these tools to steer the world towards sustainable practices across the board.

Spotlight on Google’s Green Initiatives

A testament to their dedication to this green cause, Google Cloud recently announced four key initiatives designed to assist customers in transforming their operations into more eco-friendly powerhouses.

  • Environment APIs on the Google Maps Platform: The first in this list of initiatives is the introduction of Environment APIs to the Google Maps Platform. These include Solar, Pollen, and Air Quality APIs. By employing a sophisticated combination of AI, machine learning, and other elements, the platform can provide real-time environmental information spanning diverse geographic locations. A sparkling example of its utility comes in the form of the Solar API, which solar installers can utilize for optimized panel layouts.

  • BigQuery Connector to Google Earth Engine: Moving forward, another milestone is the BigQuery connector to Google’s Earth Engine. This addition facilitates interoperability between these platforms, empowering partners, such as Woza, to assist businesses in monitoring and mitigating the environmental impacts of farming and other industrial practices.

  • Quantifying Google Workspace’s Carbon Footprint: The veil has been lifted over Google Workspace’s carbon footprint, providing another valuable resource for companies. Now, businesses can track and breakdown their carbon emissions derived from the services they use, such as Gmail and Google Drive, thanks to the Google Cloud Carbon Footprint tool.

  • Collaborative Sustainability Solutions with Deloitte: Last but certainly not least is Google’s collaboration with Deloitte—demonstrating the effectiveness of sustainability solutions through practical applications. Highlighted efforts include devising fleet solutions for electrified vehicles and leading financial service companies to comprehend climate and nature impacts better. Deloitte also solidifies its commitment to sustainability by taking part in Google Cloud’s Ready – Sustainability partner program.

Empowering Sustainable Actions Globally

These AI-powered tools, in their essence, provide businesses with the insightful data needed to enact greener changes. By leveraging data and technology, Google Cloud enables businesses around the world to measure, understand, and manage their environmental impact more accurately.

Google’s Green Commitments

These meaningful strides taken by Google Cloud exemplify Google’s broader commitment to addressing climate change. The tech giant has laid down ambitious standards for itself, gunning for the goal of operating its entire business solely on carbon-free energy.

As an industry leader, Google Cloud’s persistent drive and pioneering initiatives perfectly illustrate how technology can be wielded to create a more sustainable future. With their AI-driven approach, Google Cloud continues to encourage businesses worldwide to harness technology in pursuit of their sustainability targets.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
