Microsoft Makes Commitment to Manufacturing and Supply Chain Sustainability

By Dan Sytman, senior manager, Citizenship and Public Affairs

In a post today on the Microsoft Green Blog, Director of Environmental Sustainability Josh Henretig reports that Microsoft’s supply chain for hardware and packaging received a certification from the International Organization for Standardization, which “provides practical tools for companies and organizations looking to identify and control their environmental impact and constantly improve their environmental performance.”
