One thing that can be said of Salesforce is that they are always fighting to make things better. Whether it’s addressing the gender pay gap or, most recently, fighting climate change, they are always at the forefront of the conversation.
Indeed, during the recent Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in San Francisco, Salesforce announced the launch of the Step Up Declaration to help combat climate change. This is hardly a surprising move, considering that Salesforce is committed to achieving 100 per cent renewable energy by 2022, and is also working alongside its suppliers to set their own emissions reduction targets by 2025.
The declaration itself will be “a new alliance dedicated to harnessing the power of emerging technologies and the fourth industrial revolution to help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all economic sectors and ensure a climate turning point by 2020.”
With a current total of 21 companies signed on to be part of the declaration, fellow signees currently include HP, Autodesk, Bloomberg, Uber, WeWork.
It’s great to see Salesforce taking such a prominent stance on some global issues, and using the incredible reach and power of their ecosystem to get the ball rolling on some important changes!
