Parker, VP and Director of Diversity, and many others. The event takes place online and has a hub with sessions and the full schedule of presentations.
Google is expected to address a number of issues posed by transformations in recent years. The most recent deals with the covid-19 pandemic and new working models, as well as for safer collaborative work. In terms of sustainability, Google presents Carbon Footprint, which should bring new metrics on carbon emissions.
By 2030, the company expects to operate with carbon-free energy in all data centers and facilities. With Carbon Footprint, available starting today for customers in the Cloud Console, the measurement will show data associated with using the Google Cloud Platform. The idea is to bring consumption metrics, help with monitoring and show reports with sustainability goals.
Google will also identify, based on Machine Learning, “projects that are likely to be abandoned.” The idea is to bring the metrics to organizations to decide whether to exclude them, “reducing their carbon emissions, saving money and mitigating security risks.”
