“Microsoft doubles carbon fee as it doubles down on ambition”

“For the past seven years, Microsoft has held business units accountable for their carbon footprints by charging an internal fee on emissions that it has used to fund climate change mitigation efforts — anything from offsets to energy efficiency projects to renewables investments. On Tuesday, the cloud computing giant revealed plans to boost that fee to $15 per metric ton — almost double the previous rate. It also joined the Climate Leadership Council, one of several organizations advocating actively for policies that would create a national price on carbon.”
