Microsoft announces its goal to become water positive by 2030

Microsoft announced its goal to be water positive for its direct operations by 2030. According to the announcement, Microsoft intends to reduce water use intensity and to replenish water in roughly 40 water-stressed regions they operate. To do so, Microsoft plans to invest in projects such as wetland restoration and the removal of impervious surfaces, which will help replenish water back into the basins that need it most.
