A sustainable alternative to on-premises systems
Salesforce’s cloud computing model has a much smaller environmental footprint than traditional IT hardware and software. By sharing computing resources among a large number of customers, you gain enormous economies of scale, especially when it comes to carbon and energy consumption. In fact, our core platform is 98% more carbon efficient on average than on-premises software.
In addition, we believe the cloud should be powered by clean energy. That’s why we have committed to eventually source 100% of our electricity from renewable energy across our global operations. We’re making progress by supporting renewable energy projects, advocating for clean energy, and partnering with likeminded organizations.
