To achieve the goal of zero waste, Microsoft is planning to set up “Circular Centres”. This will allow the company to recycle and reuse 90% of its daily waste. E-waste is a growing problem these days. Therefore to reduce this massive e-waste, Microsoft is planning to set up Circular Centres. The centers will be set up in all the primary data center regions and campuses. However, the already existing data centers will be an addition to this.

The company will use machine learning to achieve its goal. It will process hardware and servers that are being withdrawn on the site. Microsoft determines itself to sort all the items that can be reused or repurposed by their customers or by themselves. But, they will also look into the pieces that can be further sold. Circular Centres intends to extend the lifespan of the servers. And it also intends to reduce the waste that is being sent to the landfills. The company commits itself to achieve this goal by 2025.

Every year we produce at least 300 million metric tons of daily use plastics. 50% of the plastic production is fit for one-time use only. Besides, 50% of the generated plastic waste is through packaging. This is a grave problem, and it is increasing day by day. Plastic waste is destroying our environment and ecosystem. They are having an intense impact on our waterways, oceans, and lands.

The situation demands immediate and bold action. This is why Microsoft determines itself to eliminate single-use plastics from its packaging. Besides, they are planning to achieve this goal by 2025. When they say eliminate, they mean that all IT asset packaging and product packaging will be included. However, they will also stop the use of plastic films. They are trying to find a more sustainable alternative to plastic packaging.
