Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is stepping down from the company’s board to spend more time on philanthropic activities, BBC said.

According to the report he now would focus on global health and development, education and tackling climate change.

One of the world’s richest men, Gates, 65, has also left the board of Warren Buffett’s massive holding company, Berkshire Hathaway.

Announcing his latest move, Gates said the company would “always be an important part of my life’s work” and he would continue to be engaged with its leadership.

Forbes has listed Gates as the world’s second richest man after Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and is worth $103.6 billion.
