Google to Use Recycled Materials in All Hardware by 2022

Google to use recycled materials in all its devices by 2022 Google pledges to use recycled materials in all of its hardware products

Google hasn't yet committed to making products entirely out of recycled parts, which is a goal Apple said it was pursing in 2017 - but which, admittedly, still seems to be many years from being achievable. Devices can not clear the second checkpoint in the company's design process unless they show that sustainable packaging and materials and ease of fix have been considered.

"This is how we will achieve our ambition to leave people, the planet, and our communities better than we found them", wrote Meegan. That includes the Pixel phones, Pixelbooks, its smart speakers, and accessories.

Anna Meegan, head of sustainability for Google's devices and services unit, said in an interview that the company's transport-related carbon emissions per unit fell 40% a year ago compared to 2017 by relying more on ships instead of planes to move phones, speakers, laptops and other gadgets from factories to customers across the world.

Three out of nine Google products for which the company has detailed disclosures online contain recycled plastic, ranging from 20% to 42% in the casings for its Google Home speakers and Chromecast streaming dongles.

So Google is sharing a set of hardware and services sustainability commitments. "Anna Meegan, the company's head of sustainability, consumer hardware, used a blog post to state that "[by] 2020, 100 percent of all shipments going to or from customers will be carbon neutral".

And they will make technology that puts people first and expands access to the benefits of technology. In 2018, we began publishing our product environmental reports, which help everyone understand exactly what our products are made of, how they're built and how they get shipped to you. The commitment means the company will work to offset its net release of carbon dioxide by working with shipping partners to reduce emissions and investing in "carbon offset" projects. "But today we're laying the foundation for what we believe will be a way of doing business that commits to building better products better".
