Since 2009, Microsoft has made and met a series of commitments to reduce the company’s carbon footprint. While we’ve made progress toward our goal of cutting our operational carbon emissions by 75 percent by 2030, the magnitude and speed of the world’s environmental changes have made it increasingly clear that we must do more. And we are taking new steps to do just that.
Today, I’d like to share new steps we’re taking in four areas:
Building sustainable campuses and data centers
Accelerating research through data science
Helping our customers build sustainable solutions
Advocating for environmental policy change
