Having a sustainable business plan for climate change is now essential

Sustainability strategies are no longer just a corporate social responsibility. They are a business imperative. Liabilities related to climate change threaten the operating models of organizations across all sectors, and businesses need a way to assess the environmental impact of business practices and benchmark the performance of sustainability initiatives.

The IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite uses proprietary and third-party geospatial and weather data to offer deep insights into carbon emissions metrics, supply chain sustainability and progress on sustainable development goals. With analytics, alerts and dashboard visualizations, you can make better informed decisions as you put your sustainability strategy into practice.

What you can do
Monitor physical climate risk

The suite uses geospatial data to present climate-related risks and opportunities over the short and long term, quantify potential threats, and help decision-making to protect stakeholder interests. 

Streamline and operationalize carbon accounting

Carbon accounting APIs help you measure stationary, fugitive and mobile emissions, location-based and market-based emissions, and transport and distribution emissions to return Scope 1 and 2 outputs.

Optimize renewable energy sourcing

Historical energy generation data, weather data and geospatial-temporal data generate high-accuracy energy forecasts for wind and solar assets so users can proactively monitor renewable energy trends.

Above all, becoming more sustainable is an opportunity to innovate. — Kareem Yusuf, Ph.D., General Manager of IBM Sustainability Software Read the sustainability guidebook
