To help organizations make sustainability progress, we’ve built the Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability, a growing set of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) capabilities. As a company, we’re also accelerating progress toward a more sustainable future by reducing our own environmental footprint, accelerating research, and advocating for policies that benefit the environment.

Microsoft is committed to being carbon negative by 2030, and by 2050, will remove from the environment all the carbon the company has emitted either directly or by electrical consumption since it was founded in 1975. To learn more about our progress to become a carbon negative, water positive, zero waste company by 2030 and to protect ecosystems by building a Planetary Computer, please read the 2022 Environmental Sustainability Report | Microsoft CSR.
