In Latest News, Newsletter3

Salesforce has announced that it has achieved net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. This sees them honour a pledge that they intended to meet by 2050. For customers, this is a significant benefit as it ensures that the cloud services provided by Salesforce are done so with a carbon neutral cloud. These are two critical milestone on the Salesforce carbon reduction road map for renewable energy usage.

To achieve the carbon neutral level Salesforce has signed two virtual power purchase agreements (VPPA) in the last two years. This included the 40 megawatt agreement with the West Virginia Creek wind farm that was due to online in December last year.

Salesforce follows a three step iterative process to meet its carbon reduction commitments.

The first step is “Avoid”.

The second step is “Reduce”.

The third and final step is to “Mitigate”.

Salesforce is making great strides in its commitment to achieving 100 per cent renewable energy across its organisation. It is, however, constrained by what the power companies are investing in.
