Microsoft has a stellar track record when it comes to climate emissions. Microsoft rolled out an internal price on carbon in 2012 - something most major companies today have yet to do.

Given these audacious commitments, and the stated aim of this podcast to share successful climate emissions strategies and stories, I reached out to Microsoft to ask if their Chief Environmental Officer Lucas Joppa (@lucasjoppa on Twitter) would come on the podcast to share some of their thinking.
