Salesforce unveils new carbon accounting product

DUBAI, September 28, 2019

Salesforce, a global leader in Customer Relationship Management (CRM), has announced Salesforce Sustainability Cloud, a carbon accounting product for businesses to drive climate action that will accelerate the world’s efforts towards carbon neutrality. 
With the new product, businesses now have a trusted sustainability platform that gives them a 360-degree view of their environmental impact and provides data-driven insights to make change the planet will notice, said a statement from the company.
The UK-based Salesforce was a headline sponsor of the first-ever UN Youth Climate Summit held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York last week.
The event was aimed at supporting young leaders who are driving climate action as part of a weekend of events leading up to the UN Climate Action Summit and UNGA.
Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges businesses are facing today, and when it comes to protecting the planet, all stakeholders have a key role to play, said the UK-based company. 
Global sustainable investing grew to more than $30 trillion in 2018, a 34 percent increase in two years,1 and this year CEOs cited climate change as the top risk to their organization’s growth, it stated.
Salesforce is committed to delivering a sustainable, low-carbon future and supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which help frame the company’s global strategy and technology innovations, said a top official. 
"At Salesforce, we've always believed business is the greatest platform for change. Addressing climate change with speed and at scale is critical to see a turning point by 2020," remarked Suzanne DiBianca, chief impact officer and EVP of corporate relations at Salesforce. 
“Businesses must work together to be the greatest force for climate transformation the world has ever seen,” she noted.
Since its founding, Salesforce has harnessed the company’s culture of innovation to drive positive social impact through serving the interests of all its stakeholders - including the environment. 
Salesforce’s vision is for customers to use the entire Customer 360 Platform for environmental good, she added.
"We created Salesforce Sustainability Cloud to help our customers easily generate trusted investor-grade data to inform their climate action programs," remarked Patrick Flynn, vice president of sustainability at Salesforce. 
“Climate change is the biggest, most important and most complex challenge humans have ever faced, and we all have a role to play based on our resources to deliver a healthier planet for future generations,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
