What It Really Means When Google and Apple Say They Run on 100% Renewable Energy

Article | March 6, 2020

Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft — the five companies that arguably make up “big tech” — say they are either already powered by 100% renewable energy or are close to getting there.
