We Are Still In: How Microsoft is Supporting the Global Effort to Combat Climate Change at COP23 & Beyond – Microsoft Green Blog

This week and next, private companies and sub-nationals are joining governments from around the world in Bonn, Germany for the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP23. At the event, participants aim to solidify plans to help achieve the collective carbon-reduction targets outlined in Paris two years ago.

Microsoft is proud to be participating in the event. During this past week, Microsoft representatives have joined in discussions to share our experiences and insights as to how technology can be deployed to help reduce energy demands, curb emissions and accelerate climate solutions. As COP23 enters the second week, we look forward to hosting demos at our booth and participating in panel discussions with world leaders.

We believe that technology can and must play a role in addressing climate change and advancing resiliency, and to that end, Microsoft is excited to share that our technology is helping achieve these aims by powering COP23 itself. We will be providing Skype and Skype Broadcast services throughout the conference that will enable international delegations, who are unable to travel to this important global event, to use our technology to participate in the various activities at COP23.

And, in addition, Microsoft is a sponsor of the Hack4Climate hackathon, the world’s first blockchain hackathon to fight climate change. The hackathon will be powered by Blockchain as a Service on Microsoft Azure. Our commitment to advancing and accelerating the global dialogue on sustainability is also taking shape at this week’s GreenBuild International Conference and Expo in Boston, where we announced a commitment to pursue LEED Gold certification for our entire portfolio of owned datacenters under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED volume program. This builds on Microsoft’s ongoing work to green our own datacenters and creates a standardized set of design and performance criteria to serve as a “blueprint” to certify greener, more efficient datacenters industry wide.

At an event this week in Lisbon, at Planet:Tech, I shared our view on how AI can be applied to areas of biodiversity, climate change, agriculture and water. I was also fortunate enough to spend time meeting with both startups and large multi-national corporations, who are investing to create new approaches to managing the planet’s resources in a more sustainable way.

As we approach the two-year anniversary of the Paris climate accord, it is exciting to see progress happening on sustainability. The pace of innovation and investment continues to accelerate, and I can’t help but be optimistic about the opportunities that lie ahead. From Boston to Lisbon to Bonn, startups, governments, NGO’s and corporations are working together to address some of the critical environmental challenges we all face.

If you are attending COP23 this year, I invite you to stop by our digital transformation booth inside the U.N. delegation hall to learn more about how Microsoft’s technology and services can help people and organizations achieve their own environmental goals. In addition, a listing of Microsoft’s public panel engagements in Bonn is provided below, and you can follow us on Twitter @Microsoft_Green for daily updates throughout the conference.

Preparing Yourself for Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is launching next week, ushering in a brand-new era of 4K console gaming. In the video above, Major Nelson shares several great new features that you can take advantage of right now to help you get up and running as quickly as possible with the games, content, and settings you want on Xbox One X. We’re here to break each of those features down.

Pre-downloading 4K assets

You can pre-download 4K assets for many Xbox One X Enhanced games ahead of launch. After-all, on November 7 you’re going to want to soak in the Xbox One X Enhanced glory with zero delay.

Simply go to Settings, then System, and finally choose Backup and transfer.

You’ll see an option for Download 4K game content right here. Simply tap A to check the box. You can also go to Settings, System, then Updates and check the box for Keep my games and apps up to date. That way the 4K content will download on its own as it becomes available.

Backing Up Your Settings

Head back up to the Backup and Transfer settings. Here you’ll see Back Up My Settings. This will allow you to transfer your account and key system settings, such as notification preferences, over to your new Xbox One X. If you enable this feature, your settings will be copied to a hard drive. Simply have that hard drive connected when you fire up your Xbox One X for the first time and you’ll be able to import your settings.

Transferring Using Network Transfer

Also under Backup and transfer is the network transfer option. This feature allows you to copy games and apps from your current console to your new console using your home network. You’ll just need to be sure both consoles are connected to the network. And don’t worry, because the feature uses your local area network, it won’t use any of your internet bandwidth.

Transferring with an External Hard Drive

If you have a supported external hard drive, though, we recommend that you use that to transfer games over to your Xbox One X. After all, if they’re on a hard drive, you can just plug it in and away you go to far off lands of Xbox One X Enhanced splendor—no waiting required.

Luckily, the team has enabled bulk transfer across storage devices. Simply go to Settings, System, and then choose Storage. From here, you can choose which drive you want to manage. In this case, we’ll choose the Internal drive. From here, you can manually select what you want to move or copy, or even better, you can choose Select all.

Once you’ve selected the games and apps you want to manage, you can choose to Copy or Move them to the supported external drive of your choice.

By using these great features, you can help ensure the quickest possible path to enjoying Xbox One X with the games, apps, and settings you want.

Finding Your Xbox One X Enhanced Games

Once you’re up and running, you’re going to want to know which games are already Xbox One X Enhanced! You can always go to xbox.com/enhanced for an official look at which games have shipped their Xbox One X Enhanced update.

On your console, you can use the Xbox One X Enhanced filter under My Games & Apps to see which games have an update. Again, be sure to enable automatic updates in Settings, System, and then Updates. That way you don’t have to manually download updates when they’re available.

If prefer not to use automatic updates, you can always check the Updates section of My Games & Apps to see which games have an update available.

Of course, you can always check that your game is running the latest version by simply launching it. If it launches, you have the latest version—it’s as simple as that!
