Microsoft has achieved a level of certification that represents a new commitment to minimizing the environmental footprint of its hardware and packaging.
As the Microsoft Green Blog reports, Microsoft’s supply chain for hardware and packaging (Manufacturing, Supply Chain and Information Services) achieved ISO 14001 certification.
