Facebook is committed to fighting climate change and has set a science-based target to reduce its greenhouse gas footprint by 75% and reach 100% renewable energy for all of its operations in 2020. Facebook designs, builds, and maintains facilities that are positive contributors to local communities.
They approach sustainability from the ground up—from design and construction to energy sources, water stewardship, and hardware design. Facebook’s data center in Luleå is 80 percent more water efficient than the average data center in the world. This is possible thanks to the cold climate and smart cooling solutions Facebook tried out here in the North of Sweden, and that they hope to implement around the world.
