AI-assisted sustainability management is becoming increasingly important for companies that want to achieve 360-degree sustainability for their business. ChatGPT, which stands for generative pre-trained transformer, is an AI tool that can accelerate the sustainability transition because it saves time and by reducing the cost of sustainability management.
AI technology can help companies collect, analyze, and make sense of ESG and DEI data, providing valuable insights and recommendations for improvement. That is just one of many time and cost-saving AI use-cases for sustainability.
“The use of technologies based on artificial intelligence can have a significant impact on a sustainable economy and society and thus effectively contribute to sustainable development.”
Transition to sustainable business accelerated by ChatGPT
Generative Pre-trained Transformers (GPT) such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and AI-assisted learning are vital tools for companies seeking a successful transition to 360-degree sustainability. ESG and DEI data, related skills, and technology play an essential role in this transition. AI technology provides valuable insights and recommendations for sustainability improvements that benefit all stakeholders. By incorporating AI tools, companies can streamline their sustainability processes, make better-informed decisions, disclose more insightful sustainability information, and provide essential data about their environmental and social impact, helping sustainability teams perform all these necessary tasks more effectively at a lower cost.
Generative pre-trained transformers are a type of AI model trained on large datasets to generate text based on a prompt. Companies like OpenAI develop technology that enables companies to pre-train a company-specific AI model with their sustainability data and disclosures. Over several years, the information from sustainability disclosures and data consists of vast data and documents. AI tools can help companies aggregate and integrate this cost-effectively and achieve more consistency. The result is more coherent reporting over prolonged periods. Cohesive and consistent sustainability reporting immediately improves stakeholder relations and enhances the economic benefits of a 360-degree sustainable business strategy.
Exploit the AI potential on the way to sustainable business
The implementation of company-specific AI-assisted sustainability has the potential to benefit both the company and its stakeholders. Here’s how:
- Improved Sustainability Performance: By using AI to automate sustainability-related tasks and analyze ESG and DEI data, business leaders can make better-informed decisions and identify areas for improvement. AI-assisted sustainability management helps companies make more progress in a shorter period.
- Increased Stakeholder Confidence: Stakeholders, such as investors and customers, are increasingly concerned about a company’s environmental and social impact. By using AI to demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, companies can build trust and increase confidence among their external stakeholders.
- Aligned Workforce: By incorporating AI into the sustainability process, companies can make sustainability goals, targets, and metrics more transparent and accessible to the workforce and their supply chain partners. Transparency of goals, targets, and metrics is essential to align the workforce and the supply chain towards defined goals and increase employee and business partner engagement in sustainability initiatives.
- Efficient Sustainability Reporting: AI can automate the collection and analysis of ESG and DEI data, making sustainability reporting faster and more efficient. Better, more timely sustainability data helps companies to meet regulatory requirements and provide business leaders and stakeholders with accurate and up-to-date information about their environmental and social impact.
AI use-cases to achieve Sustainability 360
ChatGPT can automate sustainability-related tasks, such as predicting energy consumption patterns and detecting potential sustainability risks. AI-assisted learning can help companies identify areas for improvement in their sustainability practices and accelerate skills training.
ESG (environmental, social, and governance) and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) data are essential for a sustainable transition. These data points provide insight into a company’s environmental and social impact and help to inform sustainability strategies. AI technology can help companies collect, analyze, and make sense of ESG and DEI data, providing valuable insights and recommendations for improvement.
