Operations

We’ve stayed carbon neutral since 2012 and we’re actively reducing our footprint by evolving the way we operate. We’re one of the largest purchasers of renewable energy and our Puget Sound campus has been zero waste certified since 2016. Our goal is to minimize our impact and maximize a positive return for the planet.

Products, services, and devices

The investments we make in sustainability carry through to our products, services, and devices. We design our devices, from Surface to Xbox, with an emphasis on eco-friendly materials. Our cloud and AI services help businesses cut energy consumption, reduce physical footprints, and design sustainable products themselves.

Customers and partners

Using AI, Azure, and Azure IoT Hub, customers can manage their businesses in a way that protects communities, biodiversity, and the planet. We are investing $50 million in AI for Earth to accelerate innovation by putting AI in the hands of those working to directly address sustainability challenges.
