What is Net Zero?
There is a lot of buzz around the term “net zero.” Governments, businesses, and leaders are making pledges and commitments, and Salesforce even made a splash when it launched Net Zero Cloud (née Sustainability Cloud) in 2019. But what does net zero mean, and is it more than a buzzword?
Yes, net zero is real, and it is changing how we do business. Simply put, net zero means the amount of greenhouse gases produced and released into the atmosphere equals the amount removed.
Reaching net zero is a journey. And while this journey is one in which everyone plays a role, organizations are particularly well-positioned to drive significant and systemic change toward a more sustainable future.
There are several reasons why moving toward a net zero future benefits us all. However, the benefits for businesses are equally advantageous. By implementing sustainable practices and innovative solutions now, your business will be positioned to operate profitably as we enter an uncertain economic landscape.
