Namely, both companies will expand their existing technology collaboration to create and deliver new solutions that help customers, suppliers and other businesses lower emissions.
We are building on our work with Shell by establishing a deeper alliance to further accelerate innovation in support of decarbonization and energy industry transition. Cross-industry collaborations like this are fundamental to help society reach net-zero emissions by 2050, and digital transformation is key to tackling this important issue, within the energy sector and beyond.
….said Judson Althoff, executive vice president of Microsoft’s Worldwide Commercial Business.
Through their collaboration, Shell will supply Microsoft with renewable energy, helping Microsoft to meet its commitment to having a 100% supply of renewable energy by 2025.
At the same time, the two companies will continue working together on artificial intelligence (AI), which has already driven transformation across Shell’s operations through access to real-time data insights, contributing to worker and onsite safety, and delivering efficiencies that have helped reduce Shell’s carbon emissions;
The alliance will deepen the co-operation that has existed between the two companies for more than three decades. It will enable Microsoft and Shell to accelerate the progress they are making on reducing carbon emissions.
…the companies stated.
What is more, the companies will focus on new digital tools so Shell can offer its suppliers and customers effective support in reducing their carbon footprints, while they will explore the use of sustainable aviation fuels.
We are proud to play our role in a sustainable future, and we know that a successful energy transition depends on strong technology partnerships anchored in co-innovation and development with leaders in the energy sector.
…Judson Althoff concluded.
