Salesforce Sustainability Cloud, a carbon accounting product for businesses to drive climate action, is now generally available. With this, businesses now have a trusted sustainability platform that gives them a 360-degree view of their environmental impact and provides data-driven insights that will accelerate the world’s efforts towards carbon neutrality.

Salesforce Sustainability Cloud enables businesses to reduce emissions with trusted analytics from a trusted platform. Analysing carbon emissions from energy usage and company travel can be daunting and time-consuming. But with all our data flowing directly onto one platform, we can efficiently quantify our carbon footprint. We can formulate a climate action plan for our company from a single source of truth, built on our trusted and secure data platform, according to a press release by Salesforce.

We can take action with data-driven insights. We can prove to customers, employees, and potential investors our commitment to carbon-conscious and sustainable practices. Offer regulatory agencies a clear snapshot of our energy usage patterns. We can extrapolate energy consumption and track carbon emissions with cutting-edge analytics — and take action.

We can tackle carbon accounting audits in weeks instead of months. Carbon analysis can be an overwhelming time commitment, even a barrier to action for companies that want to get it right. We can use preloaded datasets from the US EPA, IPCC, and others to accurately assess our carbon accounting. We streamline our data gathering and climate action plan with embedded guides and user flows.

We can empower decision makers with executive-ready dashboard data. We can evaluate corporate environmental impact with rich data visualisation and dashboards. We can also track energy patterns and emission trends, then make the business case to executives. Once an organisation understands its carbon footprint, decision makers can begin to drive sustainability solutions.

“The environment is a key stakeholder for every business and everyone on the planet. Addressing climate change is critical to ensuring our future. The 2018 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report predicts humans have only about a decade to bring global warming under control. As more organisations start using Sustainability Cloud, there will be more peer benchmarking, anonymised data to track progress, communities to share best practices, and ways to input supply chain information,” Patrick Flynn, VP of sustainability at Salesforce said.

“We have always helped our customers meet and address transformations, whether the shift to mobile, social or artificial intelligence. Now with Salesforce Sustainability Cloud, businesses of any size and at any point on their environmental journey can use Salesforce to drive climate action,” Ari Alexander, GM of Salesforce Sustainability Cloud said.
