The software company is doubling down on its sustainability efforts with its #TeamEarth platform.

Back in February during the Super Bowl, Salesforce tapped A-list actor Matthew McConaughey to front its commercial that urged people to take care of our own planet before attempting to travel to others.

Fast forward to this week and the organization has released ‘New Frontier,’ a 60-second spot that sees the Academy Award-winner double down on the message.

In the spot, the actor says: “Hope and trust are in short supply. As businesses, we can blame and shame or we can make a change, we can make work work for our communities.

“Maybe, just maybe, have a bit more unity. Let’s have less cancelation and more conversation.”

Walking down the street, it’s almost like a chant as the actor claps in time to the rhythm – a possible homage to his role as Mark Hanna in The Wolf of Wall Street.

The ad ends with the slogan: “It’s not goodbye world, it’s hello team Earth.”
