At Google, we've worked hard to minimize the environmental impact of our services. For instance, to provide users with nonstop YouTube for three weeks, Google uses less energy than it takes to do a single load of laundry. If you add in our renewable energy and offsets, our footprint is zero. And we continue to find new ways to reduce our impact even further.

Sustainable Industries is an independent media company producing this web site, an award-winning bimonthly magazine, industry newsletters, Webinar series, and the Sustainable Industries Economic Forums. Our mission is to create a new B2B media experience – informing, inspiring and connecting sustainable business leaders.
Our mission is to enhance homes (and the lives of people in them) with beautiful design, smart construction, resource conservation, energy efficiency, water savings, healthy air, green technology, and renewable energy.
We are not like other green energy providers. We challenge the idea that ‘being green’ is all about making a big commitment, about making an extra effort, and paying extra costs.
Indeed, companies often talk about green energy as an 'alternative'. On the contrary, green energy makes sense for everyone, and we want to make it mainstream.
So, our prices are competitive not only within the green market, but also the entire utilities industry. By minimising the cost and effort it takes to switch, we aim to remove all obstacles to going green.
And because we want to give you even more reason to switch, we allow our customers to become shareholders for free.
Put simply: we do care about the environment, but we are not idealists with our heads in the clouds. We are down to earth, in every sense.
