Microsoft’s Carbon Fee Saves $10 Million Plus Annually

Microsoft carbon feeMicrosoft’s internal carbon fee has reduced the company’s emissions by 7.5 million metric tons of CO2e, since it was established three years ago, and saved more than $10 million per year.

According to a report on the program, the money collected through this fee has purchased more than 10 billion kWh of renewable power.

In late 2013, the company published a carbon fee playbook, an overview on how Microsoft implemented its internal carbon price and fee that includes a five-step process to guide other companies on how to put it into action at their own businesses.

One thought on “Microsoft’s Carbon Fee Saves $10 Million Plus Annually

  1. Granted, $10 million is just a drop in a huge, huge bucket for Microsoft but it still acts as a powerful incentive to other large companies to implement a similar “internal carbon fee”.

    In the spirit of sustainability, maybe Microsoft can implement and “internal water fee” so that the company can save 10,000,000 gallons of fresh water as well.
