“One of the things that we realized as we started our discussion before our strategy refresh this year was “Were we doing enough?” and I think for us, as a data and technology company, it was pretty easy to see the climate evidence that nobody is doing quite enough and that really caused us to think not only about what we were doing, but how we were doing it as a company and a lot of companies, ourselves included, were thinking really about risk mitigation and managing our footprint which are necessary but wholly insufficient to actually unlock the full potential of our power.”

Pete May, president of GreenBiz, interviewed Michelle Lancaster, director of sustainability engagement & partnerships at Microsoft during the VERGE 20 virtual event (October 26-30, 2020). View archived videos from the conference here:
