Friday 17 January 2020 | 09:13 CET | News
Microsoft has announced a new goal, that it will be carbon negative by 2030. Looking further still, the company also pledges to remove from the environment all the carbon it has ever emitted since its 1975 foundation, either directly or by electrical consumption, by 2050. Microsoft added that it will also help suppliers and customers worldwide reduce their footprints. And to help in this goal, it has set up a new USD 1 billion climate innovation fund to accelerate the development of carbon reduction, capture and removal technologies.
