“…As part of our growing commitment to renewable energy and sustainability, we also announce that Microsoft will become a signatory to the Buyers’ Principles, an initiative led by the World Resources Institute and World Wildlife Fund aimed at making renewable energy more affordable and accessible.
These initiatives are aligned with Microsoft’s commitments to carbon neutrality and to powering our operations with renewable energy. In 2012, we made an ongoing companywide commitment to carbon neutrality. To help achieve that goal, we established an internal carbon fee to hold our business groups financially responsible for the cost of reducing and compensating for their carbon emissions.”
