"The environment is a key stakeholder for every business and everyone on the planet," according to Patrick Flynn, VP of sustainability at Salesforce. "Addressing climate change is critical to ensuring our future. The 2018 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report predicts humans have only about a decade to bring global warming under control. As more organizations start using Sustainability Cloud, there will be more peer benchmarking, anonymized data to track progress, communities to share best practices, and ways to input supply chain information.”

Salesforce Sustainability Cloud enables businesses to: 

  • Reduce emissions with trusted analytics from a trusted platform. Analyzing carbon emissions from energy usage and company travel can be daunting and time-consuming. But with all your data flowing directly onto one platform, you can efficiently quantify your carbon footprint. Formulate a climate action plan for your company from a single source of truth, built on our trusted and secure data platform.
  • Take action with data-driven insights. Prove to customers, employees, and potential investors your commitment to carbon-conscious and sustainable practices. Offer regulatory agencies a clear snapshot of your energy usage patterns. Extrapolate energy consumption and track carbon emissions with cutting-edge analytics — and take action.
  • Tackle carbon accounting audits in weeks instead of months. Carbon analysis can be an overwhelming time commitment, even a barrier to action for companies that want to get it right. Use preloaded datasets from the U.S. EPA, IPCC, and others to accurately assess your carbon accounting. Streamline your data gathering and climate action plan with embedded guides and user flows.
  • Empower decision makers with executive-ready dashboard data. Evaluate corporate environmental impact with rich data visualization and dashboards. Track energy patterns and emission trends, then make the business case to executives. Once an organization understands its carbon footprint, decision makers can begin to drive sustainability solutions.

“We have always helped our customers meet and address transformations, whether the shift to mobile, social or artificial intelligence,“ said Ari Alexander, GM of Salesforce Sustainability Cloud. "Now with Salesforce Sustainability Cloud businesses of any size and at any point on their environmental journey can use Salesforce to drive climate action."
