11892RE: [hreg] Microsoft's recent move
- Aug 22 8:52 AM
If we all selected our business partners—or our friends, for that matter—on the basis of single issues, what kind of world would we live in?
I was a die hard Microsoft user until outside forces switched me to an iMac last year. Had I known, however, that Microsoft lobbied against renewables I would've let go much sooner.
What took Microsoft so long to make this decision??
Have a great day!

Microsoft Quits Anti-Renewables Lobbying Group
Microsoft has cut its ties to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), an anti-renewables lobbying group, Electa Blog reports.
The Sustainability Group, a socially responsible investment advocacy group, and portfolio management firm Walden Asset Management has been encouraging the IT giant to end its relationship with ALEC, according to the blog, and on Tuesday issued a statement saying Microsoft is no longer a member of ALEC.
The statement quotes emails from Microsoft confirming this: “we are no longer members of ALEC and do not provide the organization with financial support of any kind.”
