Fulfilling our responsibilities
At Microsoft, how we work is just as important as the products we make and all that we do to support our local communities. Our behavior affects all of our stakeholders - customers, shareholders, employees, communities, suppliers, and partners. We work across our business to be a responsible partner to all of the people who place their trust in us. We think about our work in this area in four ways:
Principled business practices
In meeting our responsibilities as a global corporate citizen, Microsoft seeks to develop principled, pragmatic business approaches to challenging issues.
In our Citizenship Report, we seek to meet key global standards including the Global Reporting Initiative and Carbon Disclosure Project.
We're committed to learning from leaders on the social, economic, and environmental issues. That's why we actively seek out input and maintain dialogue with stakeholders, investors, NGOs, and issue-advocacy organizations.
We work with many of our executives to actively engage the World Economic Forum and the Clinton Global Initiative on issues of importance to our business and people around the world.
