Facebook's use of electricity 2011-2018 Facebook’s electricity consumption has gradually increased over the last years, reaching 3.43 terawatt hours in 2018. Facebook has set goals to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent in 2020. In recent years, the company was able to separate growth in the business from increased emissions, reducing their greenhouse gases from the previous year. The technology company is also aware of its water consumption and has committed to a circular system that allows for the reuse of water consumed. By analyzing their value chain and implementing changes into the supply chain, Facebook has been able to mitigate emissions from their operations.
