Previously, I’ve talked about Microsoft’s #BuildFor2030 campaign. As partner to the United Nations, Microsoft has pledged to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a set of 17 initiatives adopted by member states in 2015 focused on creating a more inclusive, sustainable, and equitable world by 2030. Inspired by the UN SDGs, through the #BuildFor2030 campaign, we’re featuring Microsoft partners building solutions that enable a more inclusive economy.


This milestone of the campaign launched on Earth Day on April 22. With this milestone we are supporting climate action and sustainability by recognizing partner innovation for sustainability. Currently, on our homepages of Microsoft AppSource and Azure Marketplace you can find Microsoft partner solutions in our “featured apps” section that are innovating to build a more resilient and sustainable future.

 

Learn more about how Microsoft partners are helping customers leverage technology to better our environment and create a more sustainable society by reading this blog post by Nick Parker, CVP, Global Partner Solutions.


If you have a solution that supports a more inclusive, sustainable, and equitable future, we’d love to celebrate your impact. Upcoming campaign themes this year include enabling nonprofits and empowering communities. Learn more about #BuildFor2030 and how you can participate. Don’t miss out on your chance to be featured! Nominate your solution today.
