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 datacenters and other facilities, helps us operate more sustainably and makes good business sense. We have already purchased more than 500 megawatts of clean energy in the United States — but that’s just the beginning. We have ambitious goals to increase our use of clean energy over the next decade. 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.
