Deloitte has announced a global collaboration with IBM that will leverage the two companies’ sustainability solutions to help clients accelerate emissions reduction strategies and make sustainability programs an embedded part of their organization’s core business.

Through this collaboration, clients can leverage multiple IBM solutions and integrate data from the IBM Envizi ESG Suite with Deloitte’s GreenLight Solution.

Deloitte’s GreenLight solution helps to provide sustainability performance improvements, including analysis on global credits, incentives and prioritized abatement strategies as well as tools for planning, managing and optimizing the economics of net-zero goals and roadmaps.

IBM Envizi helps companies capture and consolidate ESG data into a single system of record, conduct greenhouse gas emissions calculations, support ESG reporting and provide data-driven insights to aid decarbonization projects.

The new integration with IBM Envizi seeks to streamline capabilities for clients in two important dimensions of sustainable transformation – data-driven insights and strategic action. Both Deloitte and IBM aim to help organizations accelerate their sustainability transformation.

Christina Shim, global head of product management/strategy and sustainability software, IBM, said: “IBM is committed to helping our customers around the world accelerate their journey in optimizing their business operations and achieving emissions commitments. That’s why we have added natural language processing into our sustainability offerings – to improve and help accelerate decision-making when it comes to activities that can affect the future of the planet, especially for Scope 3 emissions.

“This expanded collaboration with Deloitte builds on our ongoing relationship, making it easier for our mutual clients to apply a strategic lens to their sustainability efforts, enabled by Deloitte’s deep experience and capabilities in sustainable business transformation.”

Marcus Goetz, partner and global sustainability and climate technology marketplace leader, Deloitte, said: “The climate crisis requires urgent action, yet organizations are struggling to get data-driven insights that would enable them to think more strategically and make the right decisions.

“Through integration of IBM’s Envizi with Deloitte’s GreenLight Solution, organizations can leverage their existing investments in IBM solutions to rapidly access the data needed, enhance insights and better understand their options for accelerated action toward their climate and sustainability goals.”
