Enabling a more sustainable future
We take a holistic approach to carbon and work to reduce carbon emissions in every part of our business.
Energy consumption is the single biggest contributor to our carbon footprint. With help from the carbon fund, we’ve neutralized these emissions through purchasing green power equal to our global electricity consumption.
Carbon offset projects
We invest in carbon offsets for emissions related to air travel. These investments support projects around the globe that offset carbon while improving access to clean energy, education, and healthcare - all in alignment with the UN SDGs.
Energy efficiency projects
These internal efficiency grants support innovative projects that have avoided 56,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions. We’re now focusing on catalyzing energy and technology innovation, both within Microsoft and around the world.
Track and report
We believe in transparency, and that means tracking and reporting emissions and energy across 1,200 facilities in 110 countries.
