dentsu international is the first global advertising agency network to implement Salesforce Net Zero Cloud, an innovative, integrated, real-time data collection and reporting tool to create greater accountability and transparency for its 2030 Social Impact strategy. This follows dentsu’s pioneering role in becoming one of the first companies in the world to have its net zero target approved under the new Science Based Target initiative’s Net Zero Standard.
dentsu is one of the world’s leading sustainable companies committed to and working together to take ambitious action on climate change. Net Zero Cloud will allow dentsu to monitor progress in real-time against goals supporting dentsu’s Net Zero transformation, including energy, building performance, waste management, carbon emissions and ESG KPIs associated with the incentive plan for managers from dentsu are linked. Tailored reports and predictive analytics help identify opportunities to further integrate or accelerate progress, including opportunities to engage suppliers and customers.
Net Zero Cloud will be operational in 10 major dentsu markets in 2022, including the US, UK, Germany, China and India. Over time, dentsu international will integrate other advanced features, including benchmarking for its offices, suppliers, carbon credit management, and dedicated initiative reports and action plans. This initiative helps to accelerate dentsu’s pursuit of a comprehensive decarbonization target of 90% reduction in absolute CO2 emissions across the entire value chain by 2040.
Anna Lungley, Chief Sustainability Officer, dentsu international said: “Business and net zero commitments are becoming increasingly stringent and ambitious. Businesses need to turn their ambition into action – and transform the way they work and what they do. We see Net Zero as an opportunity for collaboration and innovation within and outside our industry, and we are already piloting approaches that can accelerate action on flights, procurement and solutions. It was a critical next step for us to have an integrated, real-time understanding of our position versus our science-based goals, enabling us to collaborate with our employees, customers and suppliers alike.”
Dominic Shine, Chief Technology Officer, dentsu international said: “Sustainable thinking is a fundamental part of dentsu’s technology strategy. As the entire organization comes together to meet our net zero commitments, we enable our customer services and business processes to be supported by modern cloud platforms and infrastructure to minimize our environmental impact. Salesforce’s Net Zero Cloud gives us a comprehensive toolkit to streamline and automate the monitoring of our progress toward net zero goals. We’re proud to be recognized as an early adopter of this capability in the advertising industry, and we’re excited about the potential to share our insights with our clients to help them accelerate their own journey to net-zero transformation. “
Suzanne DiBianca, Chief Impact Officer & EVP, Corporate Relations at Salesforce said: “We are very excited to partner with dentsu international, the first global ad agency network to implement Salesforce Net Zero Cloud to track its carbon footprint. In this new era of climate responsibility, companies need trusted emissions data to accelerate their journey to net-zero emissions. We want to enable best practices and put our technology in the hands of organizations to help them achieve their climate goals.”
The announcement builds on dentsu International’s track record of taking ambitious climate action, becoming the first company in its industry to receive RE100 accreditation for sourcing 100% renewable electricity and a 1.5 degree-focused, science-backed target for reducing CO2 emissions.
In October 2021, dentsu international was one of the first companies worldwide to have its net zero target validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. It includes a new deep decarbonization target to reduce absolute emissions by 90% across the entire value chain by 2040.
