Google to replenish 20% more water than it uses by 2030

  • Alphabet Inc’s Google aims to replenish 20% more water than its offices and data centers use by 2030, the company said on Thursday, addressing concerns about water-guzzling tech facilities amid record droughts.
  • Google plans to reach its new target by using less water at its buildings and then helping with conservation in surrounding communities, starting with those where water is especially scarce.
  • Google provided funding for Global Water Watch that provides real-time indicators for current and future water management needs.
