Salesforce.com’s New Sustainability Report
Cross posted from salesforce.com
Today, we’re pleased to share salesforce.com’s latest Sustainability Report, which details the progress we’ve made in our commitment to sustainability over the last two years. For us, sustainability—environmental, social, and economic—means using the power of our technology, people, and resources for good throughout our business and in communities around the world.
Here are some key highlights:
1. Renewable Energy
We committed to steadily increase the amount of renewable energy we use in our data center operations, with a goal to eventually be 100% powered by renewable energy.
2. Green Building
The percentage of our offices built to LEED green building standards grew to 38% in FY14, up from 21% in FY13.
3. Carbon Footprint
As our overall business has grown, so has our carbon footprint. However, we’ve kept the average amount of carbon produced per transaction, such as updating a contract record, steady at .07 grams CO2e, demonstrating the efficiency of our platform.
