THE YEAR BY WHICH MI­CROSOFT HAS PLEDGED TO RE­DUCE ITS CAR­BON EMIS­SIONS BY 75% The latest car­bon emis­sion tar­get set by Mi­crosoft in­volves a pledge to re­duce 75% of op­er­a­tional car­bon emis­sions by 2030, which could osten­si­bly re­move 10 mil­lion met­ric tonnes of car­bon emis­sions in this time­frame. The com­mit­ment is in re­sponse to US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s de­ci­sion to pull out of the Paris Cli­mate Agree­ment, with a Mi­crosoft blog post stat­ing, “it’s our hope that this pledge in­spires oth­ers to join us in set­ting tar­gets, and pro­vides con­fi­dence to gov­ern­ments, com­pa­nies, and in­di­vid­u­als that it’s pos­si­ble.”
