Salesforce has formally introduced sustainability as a core business value, joining the company’s other core values of trust, customer success, innovation, and equal opportunity. Salesforce has now made Net Zero Cloud 2.0 (a system that measures greenhouse gas emissions) available to businesses all over the world to help them achieve net-zero emissions.
What is Net Zero Cloud?
Sustainability Cloud will be renamed Net Zero Cloud this spring to better reflect our commitment to carbon neutrality. Net Zero Cloud is now available as a Salesforce app, which is built on the Salesforce Lightning platform and allows you to improve collaboration, project management, and reporting.
You can get accurate and useful information about your carbon footprint by using Net Zero Cloud’s greenhouse gas emissions calculator, which uses global emission factors to calculate greenhouse gas emissions.
Net Zero Cloud helps you collect, categorise, and analyse data on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions across the entire scope of your organization’s business operations.

Everything You Need to Know About Net Zero Cloud 2.0
Net Zero Cloud 2.0 has been completely redesigned to provide enterprises with reliable reporting, deeper insights, and supplier management, allowing them to achieve net-zero status quickly. Net Zero Cloud 2.0 empowers businesses to gain sustainability information through sophisticated Tableau CRM dashboards, allowing them to meet their climate goals and take action by implementing the following:
- Carbon Footprint Forecast: Organizations can use ‘what-if’ analysis to visualise progress and alignment with their climate action commitments to find the quickest path to net-zero carbon emissions.
- Science-Based Objectives:Setting goals that are consistent with scientific objectives and monitoring progress toward those goals.
- Supplier Management: Track scope 3 emissions throughout the full value chain and assist suppliers and distributors in reducing emissions.
- Data Management: In one location, organisations can upload and track hazardous and non-hazardous waste management data, as well as treatment methods such as landfilling, composting, or combustion.
How Can Businesses Benefit From Net-zero Cloud 2.0?
It is widely acknowledged that moving to the cloud can help organisations reduce the carbon footprint of their information technology infrastructure and achieve net-zero goals more quickly.
In today’s rapidly changing world, incorporating sustainability into core company strategic planning is no longer an option; it is a requirement for survival. In a world where customers are increasingly looking beyond simple transactional interactions and insisting on ethical and sustainable company operations as a matter of course, the concept of sustainability is quickly becoming the new business reality.
Every day, businesses must incorporate sustainability into their operations. Businesses are looking to their partners and, of course, technology to drive this transformation as a result of this awareness.
Making environmental sustainability a priority!
The COVID-19 epidemic had a significant impact on people’s expectations of business as a social transformation vehicle. According to a Mercer survey, the most important goal for their organisation over the next three years is “creating a sustainable and responsible corporation.”
Climate reporting will become mandatory in the near future
Organizations may soon be required to report on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, and several governments have already declared their financial risks and opportunities related to climate change. Several state legislatures and regulatory bodies in the United States are also considering disclosure rules.
You can achieve carbon neutrality using Net-Zero Analytics.
Take the time to examine your scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 emissions data, and then take steps to reduce your carbon footprint. Net Zero Analytics dashboards can be used to gain insight into the emissions produced by your organization’s travel, procurement, cars, and stationary assets.
These data-driven insights can help you develop a strategy to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The Audit dashboard should be used to gain an overview of your emissions, check the quality of your emissions data, and confirm that your organization’s emission reduction strategies are successful.
1. Reduce Emission
Net Zero Cloud 2.0 gathers scope 3 emissions, which are sometimes ignored, and incorporates sustainability plans while accounting for 70-90 percent of a company’s carbon footprint. This reduces a challenging reporting process that can take as long as six months to as little as six weeks.
2. Embedded Net Zero Goals
Bring data-driven insights into your business from every angle. Show your commitment to environmentally friendly and environmentally sustainable practises to customers, employees, and investors. Give regulatory organisations a complete picture of your energy usage patterns. You can monitor your energy use and carbon emissions with cutting-edge analytics.
3. Weekly Tackle Carbon Accounting Audit
The objectives of Sustainability Cloud include taking action, tracking customers, and reducing emissions. It offers an in-depth analysis of a company’s environmental impact in addition to data of the highest quality for customised ESG reporting.
This information is necessary for financial files, third-party audits, business reputation, and the growth of trust. Customers including Clif Bar & Company, ISDI, MillerKnoll, Uhuru, and XERO have already started using Sustainability Cloud to measure and reduce their carbon emissions, along with other businesses.
4. Executive-Ready dashboard data empower the administrator
Even though more than 70% of people believe that corporate operations should take emissions reduction into account, calculating a company’s overall value chain emissions is a difficult and time-consuming task. Salesforce used Sustainability Cloud to shorten their carbon accounting process, which had previously taken more than six months, to just six weeks.

Why Do Companies Need Net Cloud 2.0 Now?
By 2021, Salesforce hopes to use only renewable energy, having purchased enough of it to offset all of the power used by the company globally.
In order to achieve a future in which renewable energy is continuously used to power the entire globe, Salesforce, a company founded in 2013, is committed to expediting the worldwide transition to clean and renewable sources of electricity.
In order to tackle climate change, businesses must cut their carbon emissions while also increasing carbon sequestration.
Salesforce is working to scale technologically driven carbon removal solutions as rapidly as possible in addition to incorporating natural carbon removal tools like trees and the ocean. Accelerating the shift to a low-carbon economy requires innovation at all scales, from small businesses to major companies.
If you’ve ever attempted to measure emissions, you are aware of how difficult and time-consuming the process can be. But addressing climate change and sustainability involves much more than just controlling emissions.
Monitoring and regulating emissions have become so routine as to be a hygiene issue, and the more standardised and easily accessible the procedure is, the more likely it is that Net Zero targets will be achieved.
By collaborating with reputable Salesforce Development Companies to establish a net-zero supply chain, businesses may boost their environmental impact, lower emissions, and accelerate climate action.
