Google, Microsoft carbon neutral for years

Google and Microsoft have both been carbon neutral for years, proving companies can be profitable while taking full responsibility for their climate impacts.
The company [Google] has been carbon-neutral since 2007, which requires a lot of work to offset its substantial power demands. Google achieves this three ways, according to its most recent Environmental Report: by reducing its demand, by buying renewables to offset its use of non-renewable energy, and with other offsets, like capturing methane gas from animal waste.

 Microsoft created an internal carbon tax to help reduce its emissions. Since implementing it in 2012, the company has been carbon-neutral, and it has pledged to cut its absolute emissions by 75 percent by 2030.
