Software giant adopts internal carbon offsetting system

Microsoft will set an internal carbon price to help drive greener business decisions across its spawning global operations, in a pioneering policy yet to be adopted by many companies of its size.

The software giant is also looking at buying wind farms or other clean power sources as part of a commitment to become carbon neutral in the coming financial year.

The undertaking, to be announced today, will include an unusual carbon fee chargeback system that means business units responsible for incurring emissions from data centres, air travel, offices and software laboratories will be charged internal fees related to their emissions.
