Offering helps build digital framework for Sustainability for Manufacturing & Consumer enterprises and covers data collection, governance and reporting aspects of Emissions, Energy , Waste & Water.
The Issue : As awareness around sustainability mainstreams its way across the world, enterprises need to increasingly be aware of the various regulations & reporting frameworks around extant regulations across regions they operate in . Trusted data is required for external disclosures. The imperatives are abstracted with broad classification into 2 categories – the here-and-now problems & emerging asks. In the first category are issues around manual efforts during data entry, aggregation of data, usage of excel sheets, structure related issues (people do not have access to system where data originates), manual interventions on data even though same exists in some IT system, important aspect around auditability and trust on the data and ability to do basic analytics & visualizations. Enterprise class solutions like MES or IoT based Digital Factory solutions do not have significant capabilities on the Sustainability front. The second category is around emerging needs for the supply chain, capabilities for climate risk assessment and Life cycle assessment. Also, there is a frequency increase in reporting and newer disclosure requirements.
