Late last week the Climate Disclosure Project (CDP) released a report outlining 29 companies, across various industries that have voluntarily incorporated an internal carbon price as a strategic planning tool. This report detailed organizations from oil companies to tech giants, entertainment companies and more that are holding themselves accountable for the carbon pollution released into the environment as a result of daily operations. Today, we are taking our experiences and learnings to the masses and are pleased to release
The following blog post comes from our colleague TJ DiCaprio, who will be participating later today in the Commonwealth Club event titled ‘Forest Wars,’ and who published the article below over on Greenbiz.com.
This evening I’m participating in a discussion at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club with thought leaders from various industries to explore the environmental and economic impacts of deforestation.
Deforestation represents a large environmental issue: it is the source of 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

The impact is economic as well as environmental.
Today Microsoft Research released a video interview with United Kingdom-based researcher Lucas Joppa that discusses the work and progress Microsoft Research Cambridge has made in recent years around computational ecology.
Today almost 16 percent of global energy consumption comes from renewable sources, but the intermittency of renewable energy sources could be a hurdle to continued growth. The good news is there’s been wide ranging innovation to harness natural resources for power and store the energy they produce. Read on to learn more about new geothermal technology and three new technologies that could offer long-term solutions for energy storage.
This evening, Microsoft will receive an award from Washington State University’s “Washington Industrial Energy Leaders” for our work around energy-smart buildings. The awards honor companies in Washington State that are making exceptional progress towards improved energy efficiency.
