Sustainable cloud positions companies to deliver on new commitments: carbon reduction and responsible innovation. Companies have historically driven financial, security, and agility benefits through cloud, but sustainability is becoming an imperative. Migrations to the public cloud can reduce CO2 emissions by 59 million tons per year, which equates to taking 22 million cars off the road. Cloud migrations also unlock new opportunities, such as clean energy transitions enabled by cloud-based geographic analyses, material waste reductions from better data insights, and targeted medical R&D, as a result of faster analytics platforms.
