    Modern technological advancements have allowed mankind to achieve great things, from the green revolution to changes in industrial processes. With the introduction of the UNSDG and global initiatives such as the Paris Agreement and Climate 100+, achieving sustainable growth in parallel with existing technologies is arguably the latest and most effective strategy adopted in today’s market.

    New emerging technology highlights a shift in the narrative where technology is used to support moves towards sustainability by helping corporations and businesses optimise existing processes while ensuring sustainable outcomes. Technological innovation is argued to be imperative to achieving frameworks such as the SDGs, allowing organisations to approach sustainability issues from different angles and create new strategies.

    An example of how technology helps companies achieve sustainability is via the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enhance corporate governance levels. AI programs can be used to help track company progress towards SDGs in real-time while creating Roadmaps to identify both short- and long-term sustainability goals and their associated benefits. These digital programs help companies assess their current levels of ESG factors through the use of scorecards and rankings.

    Another example would be the use of data analysis programs to help companies reduce the use of resources and anticipate future changes in regulation, supply and demand. The use of analytics helps companies to gather and manage sustainability information in the form of economic valuations, presenting them with more information to help them make better decisions with higher returns. Other technological systems and tools are used to help companies of all sizes monitor their resource usage and supply chain performance, providing transparency around key material risks.

    It is clear that technology and sustainability are most effective when used in tandem, tools such as AI programs and data analytics help detect opportunities for reducing costs and risks while bolstering sustainability initiatives. Increased operational transparency and reduced risk provide investors and clients with an attractive portfolio fit for future investments while increasing company valuation.
