The company is developing the Salesforce Sustainability Cloud, to help track a company’s sustainability efforts. The tool should look familiar to Salesforce customers, but instead of tracking customers or sales, this tool tracks carbon emissions, renewable energy usage and how well a company is meeting its sustainability goals.
The tool works with internal data and third-party data as needed, and is subject to both an internal audit by the Sustainability team and third-party organizations to be sure that Salesforce (and Sustainability Cloud customers) are meeting their goals.
Salesforce has been using this product internally to measure its own footprint across all sorts of different aspects of operations from data centers, public cloud, and real estate.
The product is in beta now and is expected to be ready next year. Currently, the company has not planned how much to charge for this service.
