Here at Microsoft, we’re passionate about building a sustainable future–
and we’re doing so one tree at a time. I was so proud to hear that Microsoft Advertising had officially announced its new sustainability mission
, which is to achieve a goal of planting 250,000 trees by July 2020, as well as reducing swag for internal and external events and activities.
This provided us with the perfect opportunity to give back, be active and do something positive for our communities… And you can be sure the Continental Europe team didn't need to be asked twice! In October 2019, we used a planned get-together in Madrid to do our bit for the environment. As a result, instead of just bringing along our tablets, laptops and mobile phones–we brought our shovels and gardening gloves too!
A total of 65 teammates from all over the continent took time out of the office to plant around 150 trees in the Spanish capital. It was so much fun to make new memories as a group by doing something so positive for the environment. This is just one small way Microsoft is contributing to a more sustainable future.
