Technology and ESG

Integrating technology to meet ESG ambitions

Today’s technology offers unprecedented opportunities to track, store, model and analyse data. Technology provides a solid, fact-based foundation for business decisions, operations, continuous improvement  and ongoing monitoring, measurement and reporting. It is applicable in all ESG-related activities, across the entire value chain, such as:

  • operations: procurement, climate risks, carbon footprint and decarbonisation, emissions, energy and water use, waste management

  • workforce: diversity and inclusion, human rights, demographics, talent and performance, risk and safety, emissions (e.g. commuting), code of conduct compliance, data privacy

  • authorities: monitoring, compliance and reporting

  • customers, end users and stakeholders: life cycle impacts.

Leverage data & technology to embed ESG within your organisation

Data and technology play an essential role to embed ESG within the day-to-day operations of your organisation and address ESG challenges, from understanding the impact of operations on the environment, to ensuring compliance with regulations, to business transformation planning and implementation. In practice, this translates to:

  • capturing the business needs and translating them to technology solution and collaboration,

  • capturing, storing and sharing ESG-related data efficiently,

  • providing usable interfaces and reporting tools to facilitate information sharing, data analysis and business insights,

  • taking action: using technology and digital innovation to improve on ESG dimensions,

  • operationalising ESG initiatives and data requirements to create value.
