Salesforce.com Foundation Celebrates Earth Day by Bringing Together the Power of Technology, Employees and Nonprofits to Help Combat the Climate Crisis

Salesforce.com Foundation extends its Earthforce commitment to salesforce.com employees, the community and environmental nonprofits

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - April 20, 2007 - Salesforce.com [NYSE: CRM], the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, and the Salesforce.com Foundation, today announced that they are celebrating Earth Day by engaging salesforce.com employees, the community and environmental nonprofits in activities to extend Salesforce.com Foundation's commitment to be "one" with the earth. All of the activities taking place around Earth Day compliment the Salesforce.com Foundation's unique 1/1/1/1 philanthropy model. The Salesforce.com Foundation operates under salesforce.com's 1/1/1/1 Model -- a commitment to deliver 1% Time, 1% Equity and 1% Product to nonprofit organizations and, most recently, to be "one" with the earth.  These activities include the launch of a global team of over 30 salesforce.com employees to help design future salesforce.com environmental programs and practices, the introduction of a biodiesel employee shuttle, technology support for environmental organizations and extensive earth friendly volunteer activities across the globe.

"Since formally announcing our Earthforce initiative in January, the Salesforce.com Foundation is excited to celebrate Earth Day with a number of new projects focused on environmental causes," said Suzanne DiBianca, executive director of the Salesforce.com Foundation. "With the establishment of the Sustainability Council, the Salesforce.com Foundation is tapping into our valuable salesforce.com employees to examine all of our business practices to determine how we can reduce our carbon footprint as a company. Increasing awareness and participation in Earth Day activities is key as we strive to make every day Earth Day in salesforce.com's offices around the world."

Sustainability Council
This week, the Salesforce.com Foundation formally launched the Sustainability Council, a global council of salesforce.com employees focused on making salesforce.com a more environmentally aware business. The Sustainability Council will help the Salesforce.com Foundation define initiatives that salesforce.com can take to reduce its carbon footprint and recycle more materials.  Initiatives include everything from engaging in a formalized recycling program for technology hardware and other equipment to increasing the use of recycled paper and soy-based ink to examining facilities use of lighting after hours.

Biodiesel Shuttle
Since opening the salesforce.com office in San Mateo earlier this year, salesforce.com has been looking for a convenient way to transport employees between the two offices. The Salesforce.com Foundation has made plans for a biodiesel shuttle to provide transportation for employees. Biodiesel is a fuel made from vegetable oil that runs in any unmodified diesel engine, is non toxic and is carbon neutral.

Technology Support for Environmental Organizations
Salesforce.com has donated its application to over 20 global environmental organizations around the world to help them better manage their business including Global Footprint Network and Rare Conservation. The San Francisco Community Power organization, an organization focused on sustainable energy initiatives to help businesses and individuals save money, energy and the environment, has been using Salesforce for more than a year as its lifeline to customers. In addition, ONE/Northwest has been helping environmental organizations for more than a decade to use technology to help advance their mission. For the last year, ONE/Northwest has been using donated Salesforce applications to help those organizations increase their productivity and broaden their outreach.

"Environmental groups bring about change through engaging with key decision makers and the public at large. Salesforce applications allow a group to have a detailed history of its relationships by tracking all aspects of supporter interaction. Using Salesforce with the help of the Salesforce.com Foundation allows environmental groups to be more effective in their engagement, which quickens the pace of positive environmental change," said Steve Andersen of ONE/Northwest.

Global Volunteer Activities
In fiscal year 2007, salesforce.com employees donated over 20,000 volunteer hours, hundreds of which were dedicated to environmental causes. Salesforce.com employees will be volunteering at some of San Francisco's most beloved natural resources in the days leading up to and immediately following Earth Day on April 22nd. These volunteer activities include restoration projects at Crissy Field, the Presidio, Ocean Beach and Alcatraz.

As the Salesforce.com Foundation has a presence across the globe, international salesforce.com employees will also be volunteering with organizations such as the Plant a Tree Foundation in Thailand, Clean-up the Broadmeadow Estuary in Ireland and Conservation Volunteers in the UK.
