Facebook Announces Plans to Become “Water Positive”
Facebook is the latest company to pledge to return more water to the environment than they consume.
The company plans to become water positive by 2030. They aim to achieve this by planting trees and recharging storage in rivers that are on historic lows.
According to the Green Wire, Facebook also aims to ensure their centers are using water responsibly.
Facebook also plans to invest in water restoration projects, which include upgrading the agricultural irrigation infrastructure. This will allow the water amount extracted from endangered sources to be reduced.
The goal is to enable rivers to have fresh water during the dry seasons.
The good news is, Facebook isn’t the only company that plans to do this. Microsoft, Pepsi, and BP PLC have all announced they plan to become water positive by 2035.
