Our progress Circular Centers We have planned five Circular Centers, with Amsterdam open, construction underway in Boydton, Virginia, and three more to be added in Dublin, Chicago, and Singapore in 2022. This has projected savings of $100 million per year once fully scaled and will enable 90 percent reuse by 2025. >1 5 , 2 0 0 metric tons In FY21, we diverted more than 15,200 metric tons of solid waste otherwise headed to landfills and incinerators across our direct operational footprint. Transformed waste accounting We transformed our waste accounting using Microsoft technology, including PowerApps, Dynamics 365, and Power BI, increasing our collection of actual waste data and providing greater visibility into waste types. 18% reduction We reduced single-use plastics in our Microsoft product packaging by 18 percent or from 5.7 percent to 4.7 percent by weight (on average) of plastic per package in FY21. >90% recyclable We achieved a 97 percent recyclable Xbox Series X and S, and a 93 percent recyclable metal Surface Laptop 4, in Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries per the UL methodology ECVP 2789. Recycled waste materials We introduced two new accessories that are made in part from recycled waste materials: several new Xbox Wireless Controllers, built using over 30 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials; and the Ocean Plastic Mouse, which has a plastic shell made with 20 percent recycled ocean plastic. Zero Waste datacenters Four datacenters are Zero Waste certified, with new certifications for the San Antonio, Texas and Quincy, Washington datacenters and renewed certifications for our Boydton, Virginia and Dublin, Ireland locations. Zero Waste campus roadmaps Eleven campuses now have customized roadmaps to achieve zero waste by 2030. Our Puget Sound campus has been Zero Waste certified since 2016. Invested in Rheaply We invested in circular economy startup Rheaply to help companies measure carbon emissions savings from reuse and fuel the circular economy. A year of progress and impact to get to zero waste by 2030. Our approach (continued) 63
