US-based multinational technology giant Microsoft joined RE100 in November 2015, partnering with like-minded businesses from around the world to take action against climate change.

Microsoft has been 100% powered by renewable electricity since 2014, by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) and investing in renewable electricity generation projects such as wind turbines and onsite solar panels at its data centers.

Rob Bernard, Chief Environmental Strategist at Microsoft, said: “Investments in renewable energy are a foundation of Microsoft’s overall sustainability strategy, and we are proud to join RE100 to demonstrate our support of this effort. We are committed to increasing our purchase of green power and making long-term purchase agreements to power our facilities with local renewable energy. Microsoft has been 100% powered by renewable energy since 2014, and this year alone, we have purchased more than 3.2 billion kilowatt hours of renewable energy.”
