Our Approach Ambitious Expectations 1 In 2019, Salesforce made a commitment that suppliers representing 60% of our upstream value chain GHG emissions will set science-based targets (SBTs) by 2024. We expect all of our suppliers to strive toward setting and achieving SBTs. Climate action isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition, and SBTs provide a well- recognized global framework for each company to chart their own path toward the same goal. By setting an expectation that our suppliers set SBTs, we’re starting a dialogue about what it means to set an emissions reduction goal. For some, this sets them on a new path to climate action. For those who are already climate leaders, it creates opportunities to collaborate and move even faster, together. What is a SBT? Science-based targets, or SBTs, are corporate climate goals to reduce GHG emissions in line with what the latest science tells us is needed to limit global warming to 1.5° Celsius. In 2021, we integrated our full set of sustainability expectations, including our requirement that suppliers develop SBTs, directly into supplier agreements through our Sustainability Exhibit. In our Sustainability Exhibit we also ask suppliers to deliver carbon neutral products and services, implement continuous improvement plans for sustainability, and measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions. We offer flexibility in how these expectations are met since we know successful decarbonization strategies will look different depending on each company’s size, sector, and the maturity of its sustainability strategy. We are asking suppliers to join us on this journey to protect our planet and prioritize sustainability by committing to the principles laid out in our Sustainability Exhibit, including setting science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Craig Cuffie, EVP & Chief Procurement Officer, Salesforce In order to provide clear information about our expectations, we’ve made our Sustainability for Salesforce Suppliers guide publicly available on Trailhead, Salesforce’s free online learning platform. Any company interested in doing business with us can access a comprehensive overview of our expectations and a better understanding of the Exhibit, as well as a detailed explanation of how we embed sustainability throughout our procurement processes. 4 | Salesforce.com/sustainability
