Neste partners with Salesforce to run Dreamforce shuttle service on HVO
In the United States (US), Finland-headed oil refiner and renewable products producer Neste Oyj has embarked on a partnership with global software developer salesforce.com, Inc (Salesforce) to help reduce the carbon emissions of its annual Dreamforce conference held in San Francisco November 19–22, 2019.
By using Neste MY Renewable Diesel, a drop-in renewable diesel fuel (aka HVO), in more than 25 of their shuttle buses, Salesforce will be able to reduce the program’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80 percent compared to fossil diesel according to California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) carbon intensity calculation methodology.
Dreamforce is all about getting inspired and discovering the future of technology that will change the world. Therefore we are excited to partner with Salesforce and offer Neste MY Renewable Diesel to help them reduce the event’s carbon footprint. All good technologies and solutions to tackle climate change are needed, and we are proud to show how Neste MY Renewable Diesel reduces emissions without any modifications to existing engines, said Carl Nyberg, Executive Vice President of Renewable Road Transportation at Neste.
Bringing together thought leaders, industry pioneers, and trailblazers, Dreamforce is the world’s largest software conference with more than 171 000 registered attendees and 13 million online viewers in downtown San Francisco.
For Salesforce that is headquartered in San Francisco, Dreamforce is the ultimate expression of Salesforce’s values of trust, customer success, innovation, and equality.
