ESG & Sustainability Solution

Today, nearly 90 percent of customers expect corporations to live up to a set of values higher than shareholder return alone. Environmental social governance (ESG) is now a business imperative, and the companies leveraging the combination of sustainability and technology are 2.5x more likely to be among tomorrow’s strongest-performing businesses. ESG criteria are a set of standards for a company’s operations that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments. Typical challenges with the current process include:

  • Lack of Transparency and Goal Ambiguity - lack of oversight and accountability when collecting ESG data across siloed data.
  • Non-compliance and Reputational Damage - lack of an audit trail and centralized data leads to costly incurred fines
  • Overwhelming Paperwork - cumbersome, lengthy documents that are difficult to process
  • Extensive Manual Processing - Tedious review process causes the human error and reduced time to value in achieving ESG objectives
  • Lack of Productivity - stifled collaboration between stakeholders to implement effective strategies

Appcino’s ESG Solution, built on the Appian platform, leverages Appcino’s ESG expertise and the Appian low-code platform to create a robust workflow to automate the end-to-end ESG governance process and strategy for organizations. Appcino solves these challenges better by tracking and staying ahead of the constantly evolving regulatory landscape. This is done by ensuring compliance through the use of Artificial Intelligence while still ensuring that goals are tracked and decisions can be made in anticipation of future developments.

The active disclosure and communication of a company’s environmental, social and governmental (ESG) impacts is key to future-proofing your business success. It enables you to take proactive measures and adopt forward-thinking best practices to improve value. Furthermore, reporting ESG data allows stakeholders and investors to gain insight into your business and maximize your positive impact.
