Microsoft has announced that Cloud for Sustainability, a dedicated cloud service for customers and partners to advance their strategies and achieve sustainable digitization, will be available to all users on June 1.
This service comes months after the first preview of its features, which took place last October. However, in the past seven months, the tech company has incorporated new capabilities that promise organizations a faster and more complete transformation in their journey toward sustainability.
With Cloud for Sustainability, Microsoft provides a tool for entities to access centralized and accessible data intelligence that allows them to make decisions and address issues related to business standards such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
This new tool allows for the unification of data intelligence, i.e. the collection and association of IoT data from devices using sensors (along with “cloud” and “edge” services), while providing companies with the foundation to monitor and measure their activities.
In this sense, Microsoft’s sustainability management software will allow companies to more easily record, report, and reduce their environmental impact through data communications, which provide valuable decision-making information.
This scalable Microsoft solution also centralizes previously disparate data in a common format. In this way, it provides organizations with an increasingly complete view of the impact of the emissions of all their operations and value chain.
On the other hand, Microsoft Sustainability allows you to create more sustainable IT infrastructures, promote more efficient activities, and move workloads to the cloud.
In this sense, it is complemented by the Emissions Impact Dashboard application, which provides Microsoft customers with transparency into the emissions generated by the use of its cloud services.
Cloof for Sustainability also makes it possible to reduce the environmental impact of operations. With Microsoft’s digital solutions and ecosystem of partners, organizations can improve the efficiency of their production and assets, while reducing the environmental impact of their buildings and spaces, and enhancing their transition to clean energy.
On the other hand, it encourages the creation of more sustainable value chains. Digital technologies also help organizations facilitate greater transparency and accountability throughout their value chain, from raw materials to product creation and distribution.
