Facebook’s electricity use has increased in recent years as newer data centers have come online. In 2019, the company's electricity usage reached 5.1 terawatt hours, a significant increase from the previous year. 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.

Facebook renewable energy commitments

Facebook is also moving towards using more renewable energy with a goal of reaching 100 percent renewable energy to support facilities by 2020. As Facebook builds new data centers, the company strives to add renewable energy to the electric grid and the facilities. This establishment of renewables also allows other nearby businesses to have the option to use renewable energy. Facebook is one of the largest corporate purchasers of renewable energy worldwide.
