Microsoft + Occidental.

Microsoft will buy 500,000 carbon credits over six years from oil major Occidental Petroleum for an undisclosed sum, Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

To deliver, Occidental will remove carbon emissions with its first commercial-scale direct air capture facility, Stratos, currently under construction in West Texas, and store the CO2 underground.
