This week, Microsoft released its tenth annual Citizenship Report that details the company’s assessment of its citizenship work over the past fiscal year. An important piece of this report includes an overview of some of the environmental commitments and work of Microsoft. This year’s report focuses on our commitment to carbon neutrality and to reducing the environmental impact of our operations.
In 2011, Microsoft launched its pilot program to install Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) around the Redmond Campus. The move was an effort to create an environment that welcomed increased usage of electric vehicles in the Puget Sound region. Two years later there are now a total of 11 EVSE locations on the Redmond Campus with 18 stations, and adoption has progressed consistently. In the past three months we’ve seen the greatest number of increases per month since the program began. The stations can accommodate both electric cars and scooters, so there are a variety of vehicles that utilize the service.
