Deloitte Germany Cuts Down on Consultant Travel Emissions Using Salesforce Net Zero Cloud

Deloitte Germany is now using Salesforce Net Zero Cloud to help local offices and clients shrink their carbon footprint. Launched in early 2021, Deloitte’s pilot program provides comprehensive emissions insights — such as the carbon footprint of each client engagement — across the firm. It plans to officially roll out Net Zero Cloud by the end of April.

Deloitte understands that tracking carbon accounting offers a competitive advantage. Though many Deloitte clients already request information about the carbon footprint of their engagements, Net Zero Cloud now allows the firm to proactively offer insight into how it’s reducing and offsetting carbon emissions to differentiate itself from competitors.

Creating a roadmap to impactful change

Deloitte Germany is using the comprehensive insights that Net Zero Cloud reveals to identify the highest impact areas for improvement. Traditionally, the organization has reported its carbon balance sheet annually, with team members spending four to six weeks pulling together and calculating the year’s data. 

With Net Zero Cloud, however, Deloitte Germany can now share emissions data every month and take immediate action when it identifies a problem area. Net Zero Cloud also presents guided improvement actions for each of Deloitte Germany’s engagement managers. And, the company’s carbon footprint is managed and accounted for within the same solution. 

Net Zero Cloud data and insights offer ways to reduce carbon emissions 

Since piloting Net Zero Cloud in 2021, and by monitoring the firm’s travel rules, Deloitte Germany has massively reduced the number of flight emissions by consultants and partners. Using Net Zero Cloud, Deloitte Germany is now able to map its GHG emissions on the individual client engagement level and provide the data to 1,500+ stakeholders and project team members. 

“The impact we have on our internal numbers is little when compared to our impact on the client side,” said Maic Stohr, who drives business development around the Salesforce space for Deloitte Germany, focusing on stakeholder experience. “We do sustainability audits and consulting for clients, and in our organization, sustainability is one of the six strategic offerings we want to deploy at scale in the next five years.”
