Doing our part to green the grid

Accelerating clean energy in our operations and beyond.

Transitioning to zero-carbon energy

Microsoft believes buying more clean energy, especially near our operations, helps us operate more sustainably and makes good business sense. We have ambitious goals to increase our use of clean energy over the next decade, and now have projects in three continents – North America, Europe and Asia – providing approximately 1.2 gigawatts of energy. We are committed to driving change beyond our operations by creating new models and investing in new energy technologies that can bring the benefit of renewable energy to companies and communities of all sizes.
