    An app strikes a blow for environmental transparency.

    Salesforce built a $13 billion business by helping companies track sales metrics; now it’s helping them track green metrics too. An app rolled out this year lets customers measure and analyze the carbon emissions of all sorts of elements of their businesses, including the energy consumed by their data systems and their employees’ business travel. Now in a 10-customer pilot program, the app is part of a broader campaign to persuade corporate peers to transparently report their environmental impact to shareholders—something Salesforce has won plaudits for doing in its own filings.
