All companies need three core pillars to accelerate their implementation. First is the right systems. The second is the right expertise. And third is the right process.
Oftentimes, the biggest barrier for action is a lack of high-quality decision-making worthy data. Companies are now leveraging technologies that are democratized, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, to create synthetic data to address some of the gaps in their data collection efforts. We see this trend influencing the dynamic trajectory that companies can drive in their ambition and sustainability transformation.
We live in an era of great disruption, with multiple challenges across energy security, the effects of climate change, and an uncertain global economy. These are some of the key insights from Climate Week in New York City. Some of the key trends that we observed were the notion of hope and belief in collective action, and what it can do to help us get on the right track at the right pace and the right scale.
Let's work together to accelerate your sustainability strategy.
