Google Cloud has has a new feature that will help people tracking their environmental impact: it has been named “The Carbon Footprint”. It shows the gross carbon emissions linked to the electricity consumption of user’s Cloud Platform use, displaying emissions over time. The initiative was designed with HSBC, Atos, Salesforce and L’Oreal. According to the cybersecurity experts, companies will be able to roll this information into their own emissions data for internal audits and making carbon disclosures. The company will also flag applications that are not in use, as well as their carbon emissions. Google suggests that deleting apps identified by the Unattended Project Recommender will help companies mitigate security risks, lower costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
