As elevated by the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, science shows that the next decade will be the defining period for dramatic emissions reductions to limit the worst impacts of climate change. Facebook is aware of the urgent need to address climate change and has committed to helping with its global efforts. Earlier this year we announced that our global operations are supported by 100% renewable energy and have reached net zero emissions, completing the goal we set for ourselves in 2018. In 2030,, we have already established a new goal to achieve net zero emissions in all of our operations and across our value chain. We recognize that the work is not done and that we have to influence technology and policy that will impact not only our carbon footprint but also that of the entire global community.

Facebook supports the United States’ goal to curb emissions as set out by the Nationally Determined Contribution under the Paris Agreement. This goal can only be achieved if the United States has forward-looking domestic policies that place emphasis on economy-wide climate change and clean electricity solutions. To drive change, both the public and private sectors must take action.

Facebook appreciates the tireless effort by members of Congress to pass meaningful legislation that will enable the US to meet its global commitment. Facebook calls on Congress to pass strong climate and clean-energy provisions, including the ones currently in the budget reconciliation bill. We support legislation that encourages investments in climate and clean energy. This will ensure that the US is able to continue to innovate and set the country up for success over ten years. To fulfill the Paris Agreement, we need federal policy. Future generations will depend on it.
