Salesforce Starts ‘Green Code’ Initiative For Lower Carbon Footprint

Salesforce launched a new initiative to help lower carbon emissions associated with the software development lifecycle called Green Code. 

Green Code features sustainability best practices that help technologists, including UX designers, software developers, system architects and IT operations managers to reach net zero targets sooner.

The Sustainability Guide for Salesforce Technology provides recommendations for designing apps and writing code to have less of an impact on the environment via design & UX, architecture, development and operations that will use less energy.

Salesforce’s efforts to support sustainable IT practices include the creation of a metric called Carbon to Serve, which measures the emissions of its data centers relative to work performed by its applications. Since establishing the metric in 2020, Salesforce reached a 26% reduction and aims to continue reducing emissions in the future.

For example, Salesforce’s MuleSoft reduced its yearly public cloud infrastructure spending by 14% by optimizing strategies such as identifying and decommissioning underutilized systems and migrating storage to more energy-efficient alternatives.

“Sustainable engineering is good engineering and technologists can play a critical role in the reduction of global carbon emissions,” said Srinivas Tallapragada, President and Chief Engineering Officer at Salesforce in a statement. “With Green Code, we’re hoping to inspire software teams and the entire IT sector to prioritize sustainability, just as they do performance, security, and accessibility.”
