Forbes Cloud 100 Honoree
How does an organization leverage sustainability to improve efficiency?
A Commitment to Sustainability
A Forbes Cloud 100 Honoree* with nearly 1,000 employees was looking to scale its commitment to sustainability for improved efficiency. The company is trusted by more than 3,500 of the world's top brands and fastest-growing innovators and is purpose-built to reduce power consumption through optimization and automation. This Forbes Cloud 100 Honoree knows from experience the cost of carbon: a single server can take nearly 8000 kWh of power per year, which is the equivalent of nearly six metric tons of carbon dioxide.
The company was previously working with internal teams and external consultants to manually track carbon, which was a time-intensive and tedious process. It engaged Persefoni to continue scaling its sustainability commitment by focusing on increasing visibility at an organizational level through automation. In conjunction with expanding its own internal sustainability team, it integrated sustainability cross-departmentally and accelerated its effort to quantify its full impact.
Scope of the Initial Work
The Forbes Cloud 100 Honoree company has deployed Persefoni to identify its full Scope 1-3 carbon footprint. This involved engaging with multiple stakeholders across the breadth of their cross-functional sustainability team, which leveraged Persefoni templates to gather data from individual contributors, teams, and workspaces worldwide. The company went further, deploying an in-depth survey to collect information on how behaviors have shifted to reflect the new remote workplace; this data will be used to improve granularity and potentially identify future decarbonization strategies.
Not Standing Still
Next steps for this Forbes Cloud 100 Honoree company include leveraging Persefoni for reporting, exploring offsetting opportunities via Persefoni’s partnership with Patch, and using real-time data to begin identifying intelligent, strategic decarbonization strategies. Climate Impact Benchmarking and Climate Trajectory Modeling are two Persefoni modules that will drive additional value to the Persefoni investment.

Decarbonization: Definition, Examples, and Why It’s Needed
Decarbonization is the process of reducing or completely eliminating carbon emissions. In this case, we refer to decarbonization when talking about the efforts to lower carbon emissions on a global scale.
Decarbonization is crucial for the global race towards net zero as outlined in The Paris Agreement. Current action is not enough, with global average atmospheric carbon dioxide hitting a new high in 2021, The world continues to produce carbon much faster than nature can absorb it, resulting in an excess of the greenhouse effect rapidly warming the earth.
