    Reducing Scope 3 Emissions: A Microsoft Case Study

    Microsoft is decarbonizing its supply chain, supplying the critical components underpinning the company’s cloud platform by integrating carbon-emission efforts into core decision-making — and delivering results. Microsoft has made significant investments on green products and requires its suppliers to meet its own carbon-reduction program, challenging transportation providers and manufacturers to take the same wholistic approach it chartered in 2020. From vision to nut-and-bolts, Microsoft Cloud executives will share how they have reduced their division’s carbon footprint by 13% within the last year on volume growth of almost 50% increasing carbon efficiency by 30%, and where they still need to go. Handling relatively modest volumes for a technology powerhouse, this Microsoft case study will have implications and takeaways for shippers large and small as they attempt to need to reduce Scope 3 emissions.
