- Ensuring that underprivileged people and developing economies gain from climate solutions is known as “climate equity.”
- Direct carbon removal, digital optimization, cutting-edge energy systems, sophisticated industrial materials, circular economy, water technologies, sustainable agriculture, and business plans for nature-based markets will all be areas of emphasis.
The Microsoft Climate Innovation Fund’s main objectives are to:
- Invest in new climate technology products that are gaining early momentum in the marketplace and require funding to expand.
- Finance projects to expand the use of current climate solutions.
- Direct company investments offer the chance to:
