Salesforce has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the State Government, to enable the businesses in South Australia to reach their goal of net zero emissions sooner. The agreement is the first collaboration of its kind globally for Salesforce Net Zero Cloud.
Pertaining to the MOU, Salesforce, along with the partners will add 100 more jobs over the regions. This will create more tech-focused job opportunities for the people in the area.
A Government Statement reads that Salesforce Net Zero Cloud combined with artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities from the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) and Green Industries SA (GISA) will be piloted to deliver the sophisticated tools and data sources required by companies to reduce their carbon emissions and take climate action.
Commenting on the MOU, Premier Marshall said, “South Australia has the fastest growing economy in the country, the lowest unemployment rate in our history and is now a beacon in attracting global hi-tech companies to Adelaide, with the likes of Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Accenture committing to operations in South Australia.” Further adding to the potential of South Australia in terms of creating jobs, he noted that the region has a green economy which can create “thousands of jobs that will help companies and communities all around the globe transition to a net-zero carbon future – and I couldn’t be more excited to embark on this pilot with Salesforce.”
“The transition to net-zero is going to require innovation, it is going to take a better understanding of logistics chains using data, technology adoption and upskilling of companies in AI, data management, analysis and reporting, and Salesforce is committed to growing these skills right here in the heart of Adelaide,” Minister Patterson said.
