Latest Salesforce News

Salesforce Sets a High Standard on Sustainability

Salesforce states it right on their website: “we consider the environment to be one of our key stakeholders” – and they take that just as seriously as they do the commitments they make to all their customers and key stakeholders. Two years ago Salesforce set a goal to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions, with a target of meeting that goal by 2050. Salesforce recently announced that they had already met this goal, 33 years ahead of plan. In addition, they are providing a carbon neutral cloud for their customers.

It’s Not Just About the Environment

For Salesforce, this is a much larger issue than just protecting the environment. It goes to heart of one of Salesforce’s core values – equality for all, because the environmental impacts from climate change hit harder in the world’s poorest regions, which amplifies global inequity.

For more details about why Salesforce is so committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, read their press release.
