Facebook Launches Climate Science Information Centre

Today Facebook is launching the Climate Science Information Center — a dedicated space that they’ll be highlighting at the top of Facebook with authoritative information from the world’s leading climate organizations.

As we’ve seen the wildfires raging across the west coast of the US and the flooding in South Sudan and South Asia, it’s clear that climate change is real and the need to act is growing more urgent every day.

How it plans to do this;

The Climate Science Information Center will include factual resources from trusted organizations. Most critically, however, it will include actionable steps you can take in your everyday life to combat climate change.

Facebook will meet the Paris Agreement’s temperature goal to limit temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Global emissions will need to be net-zero by 2050. Facebook’s global operations will achieve net-zero emissions in 2020. They plan to reach net-zero emissions across their entire value chain by 2030.

The social media giant will reduce it’s value chain emissions through efficient design, operations, and construction across the life cycle of our offices, data centers, and hardware.

It will further help scale existing technology and the development of new solutions that will reduce GHG emissions. This will also help remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Facebook is committing to the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi). It is joining other companies that have aligned their corporate climate goals with the latest research on what is necessary to transition to a zero-carbon economy.

Mark Zuckerberg meanwhile shared on his Facebook page and said that stopping climate change is something they can only do as a global community. They have to act together before it’s too late. Additionally, he said they will do their part and hope to inspire others to do the same.
