Shell and Microsoft have jointly announced a strategic energy and technology alliance to support each other in achieving net-zero targets.
Through this alliance shell will supply renewable energy to Microsoft. A spokesperson for the technology company says this will help it achieve its target of using 100% renewable generation by 2025, becoming carbon negative by 2050.
Shell downstream director Huibert Vigeveno said: “Microsoft and Shell both have rich histories of innovation and bold ambitions to decarbonise.
“Our strategic alliance will enable us to push the boundaries of what can be achieved. We believe we can unlock tremendous progress for Shell, Microsoft, our customers and beyond.”
The two companies will also work on artificial intelligence for creating new tools to aid the carbon reduction process. Shell will then deliver this to its suppliers and clients.
Both companies are also current members of the Race to Zero campaign, you can find more information on their climate actions here.
