NatWest and Microsoft Join Forces to Help Companies Reduce their Carbon Footprint
(25 March 2021 – United Kingdom) NatWest has partnered with Microsoft to help its business customers reduce their carbon footprints.
Due to be piloted later this year, the initiative will build on Microsoft’s cloud, data and AI platform alongside NatWest Group’s business customer knowledge and client base.
The initial focus will be on supporting a reduction in indirect emissions, such as those in supply chains, and support around a current lack of information and data, and a lack of resource or funding.
Alison Rose, chief executive officer of NatWest, says: “Tackling climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. As the leading bank in the UK for businesses, we have a significant responsibility, and the ability, to encourage, enable and to lead the way in the UK to transition to a net zero carbon economy."
