Earlier this week Salesforce announced a major development for its carbon accounting solution Net Zero Cloud, which has received a gold accreditation provider status from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
The CDP is one of the most renowned global non-profits that are focused on supporting organizations on climate risk management and disclosure. Its standard for voluntary reporting is currently used by over 18,000 companies worldwide.
“As regulators, investors, and key stakeholders demand more climate accountability, organizations need solutions to track progress on goals and report their impact in an accurate and timely manner,” said Ari Alexander, GM of Net Zero Cloud, Salesforce. “Net Zero Cloud brings the power of Salesforce’s thriving ecosystem to help organizations of all sizes and across industries reach their climate goals faster and more reliably.”
“The addition of Net Zero Cloud will bring highly valued expertise to companies using CDP to disclose their environmental data, and support them to implement leading actions to reduce their carbon footprint. We are confident that Salesforce’s decade-long leadership in voluntary climate reporting will be valuable to companies responding to CDP,” said Paul Robins, Global Head of Partnerships at CDP.
The award will allow Net Zero Cloud to become available as part of the Carbon Disclosure Project network of partners, expanding the addressable market for the Salesforce product considerably.
Demand for general climate impact disclosure, emissions reporting is set to increase substantially over the coming years, as companies in many of the largest markets brace themselves for new rules and requirements.
