Salesforce was today named a winner of the 2021 SEAL Business Sustainability Awards, earning top honors in the Sustainable Product category for Net Zero Cloud. The SEAL Sustainable Product Award honors innovative products that are “purpose-built” for a sustainable future.
The SEAL Awards celebrate companies that are leading in sustainability efforts and positive environmental impact to treat climate change with the urgency it requires. This marked the second consecutive year SEAL recognized Salesforce for its sustainability efforts — the company also won the SEAL Environmental Initiative Award in 2020.
Salesforce believes that climate change is the most important issue facing our planet and every thing that calls it home, and no issue is more deserving of our collective action and attention.
“It is an honor to receive the SEAL Awards in the Sustainable Product category for our innovation and sustainability efforts, especially at a time when the planet needs urgent solutions to fight the climate emergency,” said Ari Alexander, VP & GM of Net Zero Cloud at Salesforce. “We’re committed to investing in Net Zero Cloud to continue to drive impact and help companies big and small and across all industries to reach Net Zero, faster.”
Salesforce created Net Zero Cloud to help businesses – across all industries and of any size – easily track, analyze, and report reliable environmental data, and get actionable insights to take meaningful climate action. In fact, Net Zero Cloud transforms a complex process of carbon accounting that could take months into one that takes just weeks.
Salesforce is on a mission to drive meaningful climate action at scale. Salesforce achieved Net Zero across its full value chain and reached 100% renewable energy for its global operations in September. And, the company’s Climate Action Plan aligns to a 1.5°C future by focusing on six sustainability priorities, which can be a blueprint for others to accelerate their Net Zero journeys: Emissions Reduction, Carbon Removal, Trillion Trees & Ecosystem Restoration, Education & Mobilization, Innovation, and Regulation & Policy.
