Everyone can agree that going green and living clean is one of the hottest trends of this decade, and rightly so 🌱🌳🌻
CO2 emissions broke another all-time record, with emissions from industrial activities and the burning of fossil fuels pumping an estimated 36.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. And total carbon emissions from all human activities, including agriculture and land use, capping off at about 43.1 billion tons 💀
As one of the leading corporations in the world, Microsoft has just announced THEIR solution to reducing this epidemic in just the next decade with other leaders hopefully following close behind.
Microsoft announced that it’s committing to becoming carbon negative by 2030, eliminating all past carbon emissions by 2050, and the creation of a US$1 billion fund for investment in carbon removal technologies 🙏🏻
The announcement also included some new initiatives the company has planned to help its customers to take similar steps.
“The scientific consensus is clear that the world today is confronted with an urgent carbon crisis. Science tells us the results will be devastating,” said Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO at the press conference. “This is the decade for urgent action to take bold steps forward to address our most pressing challenges.”
Nadella went on to explain that while the company has been carbon neutral since 2012, they recognized that this was not enough and made these commitments with a set of principles in mind and that “technology built without these principles do a lot more harm than good.”
All of us at Signa believe that even a single individual can make a change in the environment and every little bit helps. Because together, we can create a difference that will last 🌎
Let’s make 2020 the greenest year yet!
