IBM ESG Calculator
Environmental, social and governance factors are no longer merely set by regulators. They are increasingly becoming important for consumers and investors. To stay relevant, companies need to act now and get clear about their as-is situation.
The Cognitive ESG Calculator Engine helps to find out how sustainable companies are – not only from an environmental but also social and governance perspective. The automated and AI-enabled ESG scoring tool simply needs a company’s sustainability report to calculate a score.
The pressure to be compliant to environment, social and governance factors is rising. Regulators and consumers as well as investors are increasingly more passionate about ESG. Sustainability is no longer a cost factor. In fact, it has turned into a competitive advantage. If companies want to stay relevant in future markets, it’s not sufficient for them to solely comply to the minimum standards in ESG. Instead, they need to get clear about their impact on ESG factors.

IBM Carbon Footprint Transformation Advisor
Once the data is captured, integrated, structured and validated, next best actions are proposed and can be simulated, e.g. for a data center.
Within data centers we do have a huge emission saving potential. AI-supported automation functions can be used to optimize IT and business processes. By optimizing processes alone, CO2 emissions can be reduced by more than half. With the use of algorithms that do, with weightable performance indicators, not only take into account classic cost factors when organizing workloads, but also the availability of sustainable energy and a prediction of the carbon intensity, CO2 emissions can even be reduced up to 90%.
At IBM, we are passionate about the digital transformation of our clients. However, we want them to be sustainable as well. That’s why we provide them with our long-built expertise. Check out three of our successful achievements in sustainability.
