Facebook commits to clean energy future

Greenpeace and Facebook announced on December 15, 2011 that they will collaborate on the promotion of renewable energy, encourage major utilities to develop renewable energy generation, and develop programmes that will enable Facebook users to save energy and engage their communities in clean energy decisions.

The news comes two years after Greenpeace launched its global Unfriend Coal Campaign, enlisting 700,000 online activists to call on Facebook to power its datacentres with clean energy instead of coal. Facebook's goal, announced on December 15, 2011, is to power its operations, including its data centres, using clean and renewable energy. The company will build on its leadership in energy efficiency through the Open Compute Project to encourage other IT companies to power its operations with clean, renewable energy.
