Reports say that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is launching a new green energy initiative.

According to the new move all of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s direct operations, including data centers, software development labs, air travel, and office buildings will go carbon neutral.

The program will begin in July, at the start of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s 2013 fiscal year, and includes a company-wide carbon fee, whereby various divisions will be held accountable for their own energy usage.

Kevin Turner, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Chief Operating Officer, said that, “Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) recognizes that we are not the first company to commit to carbon neutrality. But we are hopeful that our decision will encourage other companies large and small to look at what they can do to address this important issue. The goal is to make our business divisions responsible for the cost of offsetting their own carbon emissions. It’s the right thing to do. Working on the issues of energy use and environmental change provides another opportunity to make a difference in the world”.

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) stocks were at 30.50 at the end of the last day’s trading. There’s been a 0.5% movement in the stock price over the past 3 months.
