A Guide to How Salesforce Sustainability Efforts Support COP28 Objectives

As the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) gets underway in Dubai, Salesforce is detailing its journey and plans in support of the planet.

Salesforce has been on a sustainability journey for over a decade, and has long been committed to setting ambitious climate targets and supporting initiatives to increase meaningful climate action. 

“At COP28 and beyond, Salesforce is proud to stand alongside our partners in our unified effort to save our planet, protect vulnerable communities through climate justice initiatives, and create a more sustainable world for all,” said Tim Christophersen, VP of Climate Action, Salesforce.

As part of Salesforce’s engagements at COP28, the company continues to advocate for the conference’s key objectives — adaptation, finance, renewable energy, and net zero — with learnings gleaned from its own sustainability journey:

Adaptation: 

Climate Finance:

Renewable Energy:

  • In 2021, Salesforce reached a major milestone by sourcing 100% renewable energy worldwide. The company reached this goal by procuring renewable energy or claims to renewable energy equivalent to the electricity used globally on an annual basis. 
  • This year, Salesforce signed an agreement to purchase 280,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy certificates over the next eight years. These will come from small, distributed energy projects that deliver access and advance an inclusive transition to clean energy in regions highly dependent on fossil fuels.
  • Salesforce also supports ZEROGrid, a critical new effort to accelerate the transition to a reliable and affordable zero-emissions electric grid.
