Environmental and Social Responsibility
With our commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility, Microsoft works to conduct business in ways that are principled, transparent, and accountable to key stakeholders. We believe doing so generates long-term value. We focus our efforts where we can have the most positive impact on our business and society, including issues related to environmental sustainability, trust, and culture and human capital. For specific information, we invite you to explore the wide range of Microsoft Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) reporting and data available at www.microsoft.com/transparency.
As a reflection of the importance we place on advancing environmental and social progress, we assign oversight responsibility for environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility to the Regulatory and Public Policy Committee of the Board, who works with management to review our policies, programs, and performance.
