Driving Greater Accountability with ESG Measures

Editor’s note: This article was originally published on February 10, 2022 and was updated on June 18, 2024 to reflect the latest information.

Part of what makes Salesforce an amazing company is the belief that business is the greatest platform for change. The company’s commitment to equality and sustainability helps Salesforce be a better company — and foster more inclusive, equitable, and resilient communities.

In order to build greater accountability and accelerate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives, Salesforce includes ESG goals as part of its executive compensation programs. Since 2022, 10% of executive variable pay for Executive Vice President and above is determined by four ESG measures.

Aligned to the company’s core values, the measures focus on equality and sustainability:

  • The equality measures focus on increasing representation of Underrepresented Minorities (Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and multiracial) employees in the U.S., and of women or non-binary employees globally.
  • The sustainability measures focus on reducing air travel emissions, as well as increasing spend with suppliers who have signed Salesforce’s Sustainability Exhibit, a procurement contract with the goal of reducing the company’s collective carbon footprint and helping suppliers set and meet climate targets.
