Microsoft and the united nations sustainable development goals.


 The WMO Open Consultative Platform (OCP) "Partnership and Innovation for the Next Generation of Weather and Climate Intelligence" is a place for sharing information and knowledge between the public and private sector, and for promoting collaboration in addressing global societal challenges. We are pleased to announce an Innovation Webinar with the kind support from Microsoft on the theme: "Microsoft and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – A deep dive into digital technologies and innovations to accelerate climate, water and weather goals." 


The Global Goals are consistent with our company’s mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We believe technology is a positive force in transforming our world and people’s lives when it is developed and used in trusted, responsible, and inclusive ways. Advancing our mission means contributing to a future that empowers everyone. That is why we are putting technology in the hands of those who are addressing our most pressing societal challenges—so they can have a greater impact. We believe technology is a powerful force for good, and all of us here at Microsoft are working together to foster a sustainable future where everyone has access to the benefits it provides and the opportunities it creates. Read more about how Microsoft is contributing to each of the SDGs.
