Microsoft has announced plans to reduce its carbon emissions by 75% by 2030.

It has pledged to increase investment in renewable energy as well as focus on energy efficiency projects to achieve the goal.

That is expected to help avoid more than 10 million metric tons of emissions.

Its cloud-based programme to cut resource consumption has already reduced energy use at its main campus in Redmond, Washington by nearly 20%, reducing emissions and energy bills.

The company said: “As we expand our global cloud infrastructure, we will increasingly turn to renewable energy because it is a clean power source and gives us better financial predictability. It’s good for our environment, our customers and our business.”
