Microsoft's Climate Change Impact: A
Microsoft's company website currently isn't hosted by an industry recognised green host. This means they power their data centre using 100% renewable energy. Switching to a web hosting provider that operates this way will help the internet, and Microsoft becoming a green company.
Microsoft has pledged to use 100% green renewable energy by 2025. In line with the Paris Agreement, globally we need to cut the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
Microsoft has pledged to be a carbon neutral company by 2030. Publically stating you are a carbon neutral company, which is a great step towards a positive climate action approach, is what every company should strive for way beyond the Paris Agreement's 2050 deadline.
Microsoft has pledged to be a carbon negative company by 2030. Achieving this in any industry is amazing and means that Microsoft is removing more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere than they produce annually. If every company could archive carbon negative status, then the global warming temperate rise limit of 1.5c by 2050 can be achieved.
It is great to see Microsoft is doing what it takes to tackle climate change.
Yes, Microsoft is an official Principal Partner of COP26 held in Glasgow, Scotland on 31st October – 12th November 2021. Microsoft is one of eleven companies that have been chosen for their key role in climate action, helping to reach net zero emission targets.
