Microsoft in your community

Understanding our datacenter community pledge

Essential for modern technology, datacenters power everything from online grocery shopping, online banking, and remote work to scheduling medical appointments and staying connected with family and friends. Datacenters also support businesses, hospitals, schools, and governments.

Datacenter buildings house thousands of computer servers and data storage devices connected to the internet. ​Microsoft operates more than 300 datacenters in over 34 countries.

We believe that companies that can do more, should. That’s why we remain focused on key areas in which technology can and must benefit the future of humanity and our planet.

Aligned with Microsoft’s global commitments, our datacenter community pledge is to build and operate digital infrastructure that addresses societal challenges and creates benefits for communities in which we operate and where our employees live and work.

We will contribute to a sustainable future, advance community prosperity and well-being, and operate responsibly as a good neighbor.
