The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) presented the 2022 Supply Chain Sustainability Award to the Microsoft at the EDGE 2022 Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition. Microsoft saw the world’s need to decouple growth from the use of natural resources and is now on a mission to be carbon negative, zero waste, and water positive by 2030. A critical piece of achieving Microsoft’s zero-waste goal is managing e-waste related to its datacentres. To meet the growing demand for Microsoft’s cloud services, their datacentre footprint – currently spread across more than 60 datacentreregions and 140 countries – must expand. A growing cloud requires more and more hardware to power it, but Microsoft’s legacy asset disposition methodology resulted in only 77 percent reuse and 23 percent recycling of their cloud computing hardware. Microsoft created Circular Centers to process decommissioned cloud servers and hardware, and intelligently sort and channel the components and equipment to optimize reuse or repurpose. The goal of Circular Centers is to reuse 90 percent of cloud computing hardware assets by 2025. Two years after the launch of their pilot Circular Center in Amsterdam, Microsoft is on track to reach that goal.
