Google’s sustainability commitments include making 100% of shipments to or from customers carbon neutral by 2020 and including recycled materials in 100% of Made by Google products starting in 2022.

The final commitment is a more-general statement that Google “will make technology that puts people first and expands access to the benefits of technology.”
