Tesla's Climate Change Impact: F
Tesla currently does not power their corporate building using 100% green renewable energy. This means the electricity used contains a mix of electricity generated by non-renewable means. This may include fossil fuels, such as coal. Today there are many different electricity providers offering green generated renewable electricity.
Tesla's company website currently isn't hosted by an industry recognised green host. This means they power their data centre using 100% renewable energy. Switching to a web hosting provider that operates this way will help the internet, and Tesla becoming a green company.
Becoming carbon-free is one of many ways to become an eco company.
If Tesla was to become a carbon-negative company will not only cover its outgoing carbon dioxide production, but remove more than its total output.
It is estimated that globally we are required to invest around USD 60 trillion to decarbonise. If every company, including Tesla was able to fund (in part) something towards climate change as we must reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide.
Tesla has not committed to using 100% green renewable energy.
Tesla has not pledged to be a carbon neutral company. It is important that every company takes climate action seriously to help tackle climate change.
From the outset, Tesla has made and is making a difference to ensure sustainability is a core value of the company. Having a sustainable approach means that all operations, products, features, technology, and everything else in between, make environmental factors a first priority (or at least high up in the pecking order), thus achieving and maintain a climate-neutrality business. This approach is much easier and cheaper than retrofitting a product or service to become sustainable from a previously non-sustainable operation.
Sadly, we do not know a lot about what Tesla is doing when it comes to climate change. A combination of either providing little to no climate action goals or have provided information but have not specified when they will achieve such goals.
