Back in July, Microsoft launched the AI for Earth program that would focus on using artificial intelligence to advance sustainability around the world.  Even better, this Monday, they announced that they'll be investing an additional $50 million over the next five years into the project. More specifically, the money will go toward providing this AI technology to upcoming companies.

Brad Smith, Microsoft’s President and Chief Legal Officer, made the announcement at the One Climate Summit in Paris. In addition to further investment, they’ll be partnering with corporations as soon as possible. This isn't the only step forward they've made when it comes to the environment lately, either. For example, this news comes one month after stating that they would be cutting down on 75 percent of their own carbon emissions by 2030.
