In a statement sent to ZDNet UK, Microsoft director of government affairs, Matt Lambert, said the company was doing its best to improve its environmental standing. “Environmental issues are important to us all and we believe we are making important steps towards reducing the environmental footprint of our products and the hardware on which they run,” Lambert said.

Lambert added that Microsoft is happy to meet with the UK’s Green Party to discuss its environmental record.
