Making a global impact
Through our direct efforts and partnerships, Microsoft Devices sustainability performance progressed in FY20 in the areas of human rights, environment, environmental health and safety, and ethics.
Devices is committed to increasing the sustainability of products and supply chain. Our mission is to empower every person and every organization to create technologies that unlock potential for people and the planet.
The sustainability of our products begins with their design, with as much emphasis on what our devices are made of, and how they are made, as on what they can do for our customers.
We focus our efforts on ensuring people who make our products are treated with dignity by improving working conditions, advancing health and well-being, and protecting the environment.
Our goal during the use phase is to increase the energy efficiency of our devices and extend their usable life through product quality, reliability, and repairability.
Climate and environment
A healthy society requires a healthy planet. Our Healthy Planet strategy addresses two of the most pervasive challenges society faces: climate change and waste.
