7. How diverse is Salesforce?

In 2017, Salesforce began publishing diversity data. Then in 2019, the company published four new representation goals to continue to drive transparency and accountability toward our equality efforts. We’ve met two of those goals early, doubling U.S. representation of Black leaders (VP and above) and increasing representation of underrepresented groups to more than half of our U.S. population. Last year, we added an additional representation goal to reach 40% women identifying and non-binary employees globally by the end of 2026.

9. How is Salesforce a sustainable company?

In 2021, Salesforce achieved net zero  residual emissions across its full value chain and reached 100% renewable energy for its global operations*.

Salesforce published its Nature Positive Strategy, outlining specific actions the company will take to accelerate its existing commitment to net zero, nature-positive future. Salesforce has also established sustainability as a core company value and announced AI features for its ESG platform, Net Zero Cloud.

Sustainability priorities to drive toward a 1.5°C future with its Climate Action Plan include: emissions reduction, carbon removal, trillion trees & ecosystem restoration, education & mobilization, innovation, and regulation & policy — offering others a blueprint to accelerate their journey to net zero. In line with our sustainability priorities, Salesforce also co-founded, the global movement to conserve, restore and grow 1 trillion trees by 2030 and launched an Ocean Sustainability Program to help protect our ocean.
