Microsoft has been a fairly progressive company for many years now when it comes to the environment. Since 2012, the tech giant has been completely carbon neutral, and they often assist or create programs relating to conservation and wildlife protection as seen in their recent efforts at Woodland Park Zoo.
To better showcase all of their environmental policies and efforts around the world, Microsoft has started a new website named, Microsoft Environment. This new site, in addition to promoting the latest eco-related projects, also contains detailed information on the lifecycle of Microsoft products.
Microsoft’s Rob Bernard says of the system, “We manage the complexity of the return and recycle phase by partnering with recycling organizations, joining forces with collection schemes, and working with retail stores and other partners to facilitate the return and recycle process for consumers. Our Refurbished PC Program, for example, helps reduce e-waste by encouraging the purchase of certified used products through a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher. It’s an economic and environmentally-friendly solution that we’re proud to offer for our customers and the planet, and it now offers Windows 10 devices.”
