New York, USA, 29th May 2024, ZEX PR WIREPowerledger today announced that it has achieved the Google Cloud Ready – Sustainability designation in the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program. By earning the Sustainability designation, Powerledger has proven their success in building and producing solutions and tools on Google Cloud to help customers achieve their sustainability and Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) goals.  The designation was awarded based on the success of Powerledger’s platforms that are leveraged by over 30 companies for sustainability related use cases like Ekwateur in France that allows their customers to meticulously track and trace their energy, Energie Steiermark in Austria that creates energy communities, to TATA Power in India that enables Peer to Peer Energy Trading.

The new solutions of the Google Cloud Ready – Sustainability partner program will help customers achieve meaningful climate objectives for their businesses. Partners with this designation deliver solutions that reduce carbon emissions, increase the sustainability of value chains, help organizations process ESG or help them identify climate risk for increased resilience.
