Sustainability, Data, and Being Relevant

Our colleague JD Capuano wrote an excellent piece for Triple Pundit called Why Sustainability is Missing the Data Party in which he describes the disconnect between sustainability teams and data-driven, business-critical solutions.

While data and sustainability are somewhat linked, there is a gap between the quality, quantity, and significance of sustainability data when compared to business-critical data.

Are sustainability professionals doomed to life at the kids table? Without better integration of data-driven strategies, yes. The good news: with some effort, data skills, and expertise, sustainability can turn from a nice-to-have into a critical business function.

As JD points out: there is hope:

Companies putting an internal price on carbon, setting science-based goals, and mapping supply chains represent some of the most detailed uses of sustainability data today. Data-driven sustainability insights can transform how executives think in this age of disruption. And that deserves a seat at the table.
