ESG Today writes that the carbon credits will be delivered through forest management projects in the US carried by 2001-founded Anew Climate, a company that provides climate solutions that help firms lower their carbon footprint. Additionally, through its projects, the team of experts at the company aims to preserve and restore nature's ecosystems.

Brian Marrs, Senior Director of Energy and Carbon Removal at Microsoft, said that "carbon removal credits provide a financial incentive for traditional institutional landowners and managers to shift to sustainable forestry and land management practices. We are pleased to collaborate with Anew Climate to help increase the carbon stocks of forests across the United States."

The carbon credits will be delivered through reforestation projects carried by Anew experts at the company's forested lands.

This agreement marks the latest effort in Microsoft's sustainability roadmap to become a carbon-negative company by 2030 and it also established a nature-based carbon removal market for 20 million tons of CO2 emissions with Google, Meta and Salesforce.
