Microsoft Australia: Advancing Environmental Sustainability through Software

  • Comments 0


Environmental sustainability is an important issue at Microsoft Australia. From developing online resources that share environmental news and information to recognizing innovative environmental software solutions by partners, Microsoft Australia is helping to advance environmental sustainability through software.


The Green Generation channel on ninemsn provides Australian consumers with news and information that helps promote a greener lifestyle. The channel also provides a number of valuable environmental tools to visitors, including an eco-footprint calculator that enables users to calculate their personal environmental footprints.

Microsoft Australia Partner Conference

At the 2008 annual Microsoft Australian Partner Conference, Microsoft Australia awarded the first Australian Partner Award for “Environment and Sustainability Solution of the Year.”

According to Nick Mayhew, Microsoft Partner Strategy Lead for Australia, the strength of the entries in the inaugural year of the environmental solution category demonstrated that partners throughout Australia are committed to helping customers realize the potential of Microsoft technology to help solve global environmental issues. “We were truly delighted with the quantity and quality of the entries and it was great to see partners genuinely making a difference using leading edge Microsoft technologies, and growing their businesses at the same time.”

In the end, Prima Consulting was selected the winner from a group of finalists from around Australia – with Fujitsu Australia Limited and DSC-IT recognized as fellow finalists in the competition.
