Green Google And Yahoo Green

There have been a couple of articles on TechCrunch and Read/Write Web regarding the green credentials of both Google and Yahoo that are both worth reading.

Yahoo has launched two websites, Be A Better Planet, and Yahoo Green that is a portal for information on climate change, including tools for creating your own action plan for cutting your carbon emissions. Yahoo plans to become carbon neutral by the end of the year.

Google is planning on installing “the largest solar installation on any corporate campus in the U.S.” and have launched their “Summer of Green” to help people travel in a more environmentally friendly way.

True green initiatives or just corporate hype?

  1. They are both very nicely designed websites. With Yahoo and Google being such successful business I’d put my money on corporate hype for sure. Not that it matters, in my opinion, it’s still getting people excited about making a difference. Yahoo and Google are able to reach a wider audience as well so I think it’s a win-win situation.
