At Microsoft, we understand how quickly information technology impacts society. This video with chief environmental strategist Rob Bernard addresses how the cloud is at the forefront of transforming society—and why that’s good news for the environment.
As both the global population and the number of people with access to technology continue to grow, we realize that we cannot continue to use resources at our current rate and expect the future to be sustainable. For Microsoft, we not only focus on IT and the role our own industry plays, but also on other sectors like buildings, transportation and energy that are being transformed by information and technology. The Microsoft campus in Redmond is a great laboratory for us—it functions as a small city where the company can test innovative ideas in sustainability.
Check out the video, which can also be found on the Microsoft Green YouTube channel, for a look into how the cloud changes everything.
