If you’re a Google Workspace admin, you can now track the carbon footprint and gross emissions of using Google Workspace. This means you can track the emissions impact of tools such as Google Meet, Gmail, Google Docs, and more.
Why it matters
Google have heard from their customers that it would be helpful to understand their organisation’s carbon emissions from Google Workspace product usage.
For many customers, sustainability has become an increasingly important factor for IT-related decision making and resource allocation.
Google are making this information easily accessible to our customers in the Admin console.
Using the Carbon Footprint reporting tool, you can:
- View aggregated emission data for your organisation over time, broken down by service. You’ll be able to sort this information, month over month as well.
- You can break down emission data by service, such as Gmail or Drive .
