A few weeks after announcing plans to become carbon negative by 2030, Microsoft has now pledged to also become "water positive" by 2030, meaning it will replenish more water than it consumes. "We'll do this by putting back more water in stressed basins than our global water consumption across all basins," said the company in a blog post. Specifically, Microsoft intends to invest in projects such as wetland restoration and the removal of impervious surfaces like asphalt, adding that it will focus on around 40 highly stressed basins close to its operations.
