We Love Companies Committed to Using Renewable Energy to Run the Internet

Sad face icon clipartsLots and lots of energy is used to run the internet – more than the UK’s total consumption. We searched high and low in Australia for companies who are moving to using 100% renewable energy to power their internet services. Couldn’t find one! We even spoke to the IT department at Greenpeace to see if we had missed something, but they said they found the same. Let’s get on to it Australia! We are out looking for how to ideas.

We did find a Greenpeace chart which lists international companies dedicated to using renewable energy for their internet services. We love Smiley iconhow Apple is powering ahead in the use of 100% renewable energy to run their internet services. So we circled the ones that we support. They are either doing really well or at least trying to improve. Apple and Facebook are committed to using 100% renewable energy.

We want to encourage the companies with crosses to become part of the solution. They are using dirty energy, which fuels climate change and we want them to take the lead. They have the wealth and resources to help the our planet!
