Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability

Time to take action

New requirements from the ISSB (International Sustainability Standards Board), recently revealed its intentions to incorporate Scope 3 emissions into compulsory reporting criteria. Companies will be facing detailed sustainability reporting requirements from the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive in 2024 making the access to real-time, accurate data absolutely crucial.

Microsoft's Cloud for Sustainability includes solutions that are built on the capabilities of Microsoft Sustainability Manager, Common Data Model, Microsoft 365, Azure, Surface, Windows 11, Teams, and Microsoft Power Platform. 

With the Sustainability Manager specifically including the capability to store activity data and calculate all scope 3 emissions, the Microsoft's Cloud for Sustainability is the ideal solution to help you navigate your ESG journey.
