Microsoft hits its “Stride” with Climate Counts

  • Comments 0

Climate Counts, a non-profit created to raise consumer and corporate awareness of climate impact and corporate responsibility, today announced that Microsoft has achieved their highest category of rating. Climate Counts scores the world's largest companies on their climate impact to spur corporate climate responsibility with a goal of empowering consumers to support companies that take climate change seriously and avoid those that don't. This year, Microsoft jumped from Starting to Striding, and moved up 23 points to earn a score of 61.  In their review Climate Counts notes “Microsoft has established goals and made efforts towards energy efficiency, reducing the company’s impact on global warming (i.e., its greenhouse gas emissions or climate footprint). The company has also worked to foster climate awareness among consumers, employees, and other businesses.”

Climate Counts is one the key external benchmarks we consider in evaluating our progress to address climate change and we appreciate the work they do to provide the marketplace with a framework for assessing companies’ actions to address the pressing issue of climate change.
