Microsoft’s latest eco-push: recycling data centre servers with the help of AI

Microsoft’s “green summer” just got even greener after the tech giant launched yet another ambitious environmental goal and a roadmap about how it plans to achieve it.

The 45-year-old tech company’s latest pledge is to eliminate waste for direct operations, products and packaging by 2030.

In a blog post, Microsoft President Brad Smith said the company recognised “the urgent need to protect the world’s ecosystems and reduce the carbon emissions that come from the creation, distribution and disposal of waste”.
