Building products
for the planet.
And for everyone.
From product design to manufacturing to supply chains, we are working to address our environmental and social impact at every step.
Our approach
There are three ways we cultivate sustainability.

Design choices
Lower-impact materials and longer-lasting products.
We’re designing processes that eliminate waste and pollution. While providing better support to give our products a longer life so they don’t have to be replaced often.
Give materials a second life.
Of all plastic waste in the world – amounting to billions of metric tons – only a fraction is recycled. That’s why we’re partnering with our suppliers to develop safe, durable and high-quality recycled plastic while cutting down usage of non‑recycled plastic.
Portfolio-wide commitment
All Made by Google products launched since 2020 are built with recycled materials.
Reusing plastic
We’re committing to using recycled or renewable material in at least 50 percent of all plastic in all our hardware products by 2025, prioritizing recycled plastic everywhere we can.
Packaging goals
By 2025, we’re committing to making our product packaging 100 percent plastic-free and 100 percent recyclable.

Ingredients matter.
A large part of manufacturing waste ends up in landfills. To reduce our carbon footprint and impact, we’re maximizing the use of recycled and renewable materials across our operations, products, and supply chains.
Recycled aluminum
Using recycled aluminum helps us reduce our carbon footprint. The aluminum in the housing of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro is 100% recycled content.
Thoughtfully designed cases
The Pixel phone cases have been redesigned to contain 30-70% recycled plastic.
Refined textiles
The Nest Audio enclosure is made from 70% post-consumer recycled plastic including textile made from recycled water bottles.

Reducing waste.
There is immense strain on our natural resources with an urgent need to balance consumption and consequences. So we’re trying to reduce the waste generated at all levels – from manufacturing to retail.
Simpler construction
The Nest Thermostat is now made with 36% fewer parts for a less complicated design.
Versatility
Our cameras feature flexible designs, making them more versatile so they can continually adapt to people’s evolving preferences.
