It’s been a busy three years for Rob Bernard as Microsoft‘s first chief environmental strategist. But being tasked with driving sustainable innovations at the world’s biggest software firm – with unparalleled reach into homes, businesses, and governments – was never going involve much downtime.

At a corporate level, Bernard has worked to make Microsoft more sustainable as a business.
