Microsoft's mission is to become carbon negative in the next decade, and CNBC's Jim Cramer believes the ambitious plan has a lot to offer.

"I think they can because of being a powerful force – perhaps the most powerful, especially when it comes to data centers, from almost every company on earth," said Mad Money's host about the new imitation. "So I think they can have an impact. I think that's real. It's not a green wash."

Science is aware that environmental sustainability must take a company's growth plans into account, or that the US capitalist and economic system is "fundamentally in danger," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told CNBC.

"The company's goal is to find profitable solutions to the problems of people and planets," he said in an interview with Cramer, quoting Colin Mayer, Oxford University author and professor of economics. "& # 39; Profitable" is the key word, but "Problems" is the other key word for humans and planets. "

The comments came after Microsoft, the world's largest software company, announced an ambitious environmental plan aimed at reducing its carbon footprint and reducing the amount of CO2 it has emitted over the decades.

According to Justin Gover, CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals, preliminary sales of the first cannabis-based drug in the US are available and tell a bullish story.

Epidiolex, which contains cannabidiol for the treatment of severe forms of epilepsy, had net sales of $ 104 million in the fourth quarter and total sales of $ 296 million worldwide in 2019.

"It's been an incredible launch year for every drug [that] I think this is proof that this type of medicine really makes a difference for patients, "Gover said in an interview with Cramer for another great year for us in 2020."
