Google Maps hopes to help reduce carbon emissions
Google has announced that it hopes to help reduce carbon emissions with Google Maps and artificial intelligence.
The company is using Google Maps in a number of ways to help reduce emissions, it is working with cities and governments to reduce emissions with their map data, and it is expanding to more cities.
In an effort to help more cities take action on climate change, we will make EIA transport information available to more than 20,000 cities and regional governments by the end of the year, which will make it one of the largest collections ever of high quality and globally consistent environmental information. information source. This expansion will double the number of geographic areas represented in EIA, accounting for the majority of global transport emissions.
As the window continues to narrow for implementing policies and plans to reduce emissions, we unite around one mission: fostering sustainability at scale. To help you, we are working in partnership with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a network of mega-cities committed to the fight against climate change. Our work with C40 will help us better meet the needs of cities while making data accessible to urban projects working on climate solutions. Together, we can provide better quality transportation activity data to measure and track GHG emissions globally, while giving state and local governments the resources to better understand what works at the local level.
We’ve also heard previously that Google has added the lowest carbon routes to Google Maps in an effort to help cut emissions.
