Microsoft Commits To Carbon Neutrality

Microsoft has recommitted itself to working in greener pastures by promising carbon neutrality by July 1st, the start of fiscal 2013. The software giant announced this week "that it wants to make its data centers, software development labs, air travel, and office buildings carbon neutral."

Microsoft, who has been made substantial efforts in the past to account for it's impact on the environment,will introduce an accountability model that will hold regional divisions responsible for their carbon output and even reward those that reduce environmental impact.

Previously we have seen carbon neutrality efforts in the airline industry with some carriers in Europe, we hope this trend continues on to other industries as well.


  1. Can you get rewarded for planting trees?

  2. On campus, probably not. But I'm sure they'll take into account their shuttle program which has always been popular, and since the 520 toll came into effect, is probably being used a lot more.
