In 2015, 10 B Team companies made the commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 – the timeline we need to be on to have the best chance of keeping global warming under 1.5 degrees.
Today one of these companies – Salesforce – reached this milestone well ahead of schedule. It’s a powerful demonstration that not only is net zero possible, but it’s possible on an accelerated timeframe necessary to rapidly bend the curve on global emissions, and limit the worst impacts of climate change.
Leah Seligmann, director of The B Team’s Net Zero by 2050 Initiative, said, “The B Team congratulates Salesforce on achieving net-zero so far ahead of the Net Zero 2050 commitment. Salesforce’s leadership will enable their customers to expand their networks emissions free and inspire other companies around the world.”
