Microsoft said it would become 'carbon negative' by 2030 as part of a ramped-up effort by the US tech giant to combat climate change

Microsoft said it would become "carbon negative" by 2030 as part of a ramped-up effort by the US tech giant to combat climate change.

Microsoft, one of the world's most valuable companies, said that it has been carbon neutral since 2012 but that "neutral is not enough to address the world's needs" to fight the effects of climate change. UK-based utility Drax said last month it would become the first company in the world to be carbon negative, or removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it creates, by 2030.

The move comes amid growing concerns that climate change is accelerating, and data showing the past decade was the hottest on record.
