The company now provides a carbon neutral cloud for all customers
San Francisco, CA /PRNewswire/ - Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the world's fastest growing top five enterprise software company and the #1 CRM provider globally, has achieved net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and is now providing a carbon neutral cloud for all customers—two critical milestones in the company's ongoing sustainability journey.
Salesforce is committed to harnessing the company's culture of innovation to improve the state of the world and drive toward equality for all. Every individual, company, city and nation experiences the effects of climate change, which disproportionately impact many of the world's poorest regions and amplify global inequality.
Since its founding, Salesforce set out to deliver value to customers in a new way—through the cloud. Salesforce's multi-tenant architecture is 50 times more energy- and carbon-efficient than traditional on-premise software, enabling Salesforce and its customers to avoid significant emissions over time—two million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2016.
Salesforce has achieved net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by building on longstanding efforts to drive efficiency in the company's operations, executing two 12-year renewable energy agreements announced last year and supporting sustainable development projects through the purchase of high-quality carbon credits.
