Microsoft's sustainable goals

The Redmond company is making progress in the consolidation of its sustainable projects for the coming decades.

Microsoft has been actively involved in a multitude of solidarity campaigns in different areas. In this sense, it has also shown its commitment to the climate challenge with different initiatives that seek, on the one hand, to promote a transition in the habits of the company itself, its suppliers and partners and, on the other hand, to provide customers with tools that facilitate their own transitions to more sustainable models. Here is a summary of some of Microsoft's sustainable objectives and the projects promoted for their development:

2030. Carbon negative.

In January 2020, the company's CEO, Satya Nadella, announced an ambitious project that seeks to build a sustainable model. It encompasses different actions related to the use of carbon, water, waste and biodiversity. It was also announced that Microsoft will be carbon negative by 2030. This goal is a huge challenge for the company and is part of a large project with other multinational companies: Transform to Net Zero. A coalition of companies that will work towards this sustainable transition.

Microsoft has committed to eliminating diesel dependence by 2030. Cloud providers often rely on diesel generators as a backup method. The search for a sustainable alternative is a huge challenge. The company works closely with its suppliers and has updated its Supplier Code of Conduct.

Microsoft Sustainability Calulator

As we said, the transition to cleaner energy is one of Microsoft's main sustainability goals. Recently it has announced the preview of a new product: Microsoft Sustainability Calculator. This Microsoft Sustainability Calculator will help cloud customers by providing greater transparency into the total carbon emissions of cloud usage.

Through artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, Microsoft Sustainability Calculator provides relevant information to reduce and predict emissions. It also simplifies carbon reporting. How does it do that? It quantifies the environmental footprint of using cloud services through systematic and accurate carbon measurement.

Climate equity and environmental justice

It is a fact that climate issues do not affect everyone in the same way. In this sense, Microsoft has partnered with Sol Systems for 500 MW of renewable energy. The goal is to develop renewable energy with investments in communities affected by the climate challenge.
