Internet giant Google announced on Wednesday that in 2022 it will invest 9,500 million dollars in offices and data centers in the United Stateswhich he hopes will help create 12,000 new jobs full time.

In an entry on the corporate blog, the CEO of Google and its parent company, Alphabet, Sundar Pichai, also assured that in addition to the 12,000 jobs with Google, the investments will also create thousands of jobs among its suppliers and partners.

In its press release, the company states that they are working so that by 2030 its offices and data centers will operate on carbon-free energy 24/7, as they seek to set new standards for green building design.

In the last five years, Google invested more than USD 37 billion in the US in offices and data centers distributed in 26 statescreating more than 40,000 full-time jobs. That’s on top of the more than $40 billion in research and development invested in the country between 2020 and 2021.

Also released in today’s report was a 2021 economic impact report on Google’s broader contribution to the economy. It reflects a contribution of USD 617 billion in economic activity for millions of American companies, non-profit organizations, creators, developers and publishers last year.
