As Microsoft pursues its mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, there is great opportunity for their customers, partners and company. 

With that opportunity comes a great responsibility to society. That is why Microsoft continuously works to apply the power of technology to empower all people, strengthen communities globally and protect our planet. It is also why their policies and business practices are rooted in a commitment to timeless values such as trust, privacy, inclusion, and transparency.  

This commitment not only guides the products and services they develop, but also how they operate around the world. While progress has been made and they have worked to create an impact addressing important societal issues during fiscal year 2018- they recognize there is much work to be done. Microsoft customers, partners, and stakeholders continue to hold the company to high standards.
