Thousands of businesses won't be able to deliver on climate change promises if they don't start training employees on sustainability principles, Microsoft Corporation President Brad Smith told Reuters.

He said general guidance on issues such as carbon accounting has been too fragmented for the roughly 3,900 companies that have pledged to reduce CO2 emissions.

Microsoft sells software for organizations to track their environmental impact. Still, companies need more than technology to fight global warming, Smith said, announcing plans to develop environmental education materials, including on Microsoft-owned LinkedIn.

While Microsoft itself has increased its sustainability workforce to about 250 from about 30 mostly in the past three years, having the right workforce to meet carbon reduction goals remains a challenge, Smith said.
