ERM, the world’s largest pure play sustainability consultancy, has announced that the company is establishing a partnership with Salesforce, the global leader in CRM, to help organizations accelerate their decarbonization journeys and deliver on their sustainability goals.

Salesforce and ERM will work together to bring clients decarbonization services and Net Zero Cloud to help organizations establish operational excellence to track and report on ESG goals.

As a global tier one partner, ERM will provide end-to-end decarbonization services across the client lifecycle utilizing Salesforce’s sustainability management solution, Net Zero Cloud.

Businesses across industries use it to simulate scenarios, forecast their emissions and measure progress against net zero goals.

ERM’s services encompass the elements of an organization’s decarbonization journey. This includes planning and target-setting, integrating and implementing decarbonization strategies across operations and value chains and supporting reporting and disclosure requirements.

Matt Klein, Global Corporate Sustainability & Climate Change Co-Head at ERM said: “Businesses today face the urgent challenge of accelerating their decarbonization progress while driving profitable revenue growth.

“By combining Net Zero Cloud’s insight into carbon emissions with ERM’s decarbonization strategy and delivery expertise, our partnership with Salesforce will help organizations implement comprehensive decarbonization plans to support their sustainability goals and harness the opportunities offered by the transition to a net zero economy.”
