AI-assisted sustainability is becoming increasingly important for companies that want to implement a 360-degree approach. ChatGPT, a generative pre-trained transformer, is an AI tool that can accelerate the sustainability transition.

“AI technology can help companies collect, analyze, and make sense of ESG and DEI data, providing valuable insights and recommendations for improvement.”

Transition to sustainable business supported by ChatGPT

The application of generative pre-trained transformers such as ChatGPT and AI-assisted learning is a key tool for companies seeking a successful transition to 360-degree sustainability. ESG and DEI data and related skills and technology play an essential role in this transition. AI technology provides valuable insights and recommendations for improvement to all stakeholders. By incorporating AI tools, companies can streamline their sustainability processes and make better-informed decisions and disclose sustainability information and data about their environmental and social impact more effectively at a lower cost.

Generative pre-trained transformers are a type of AI model that has been trained on large datasets to generate text based on a prompt. Companies like OpenAI enable companies to pre-train a company-specific AI model on their sustainability data and disclosures, often huge amounts of data and documents are collected each year. AI tools can help companies to do this more cost-effectively and achieve more consistent and coherent reporting over prolonged periods. This immediately improves stakeholder relations and enhances the economic benefits of a holistic sustainable business strategy.


Exploit the AI potential on the way to sustainability

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. This can lead to a more sustainable and socially responsible business in a shorter period.
  • Increased Stakeholder Confidence: Stakeholders, such as investors and customers, are becoming 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 potentially their supply chain partners. This can help to align the workforce and the extended 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. This can help companies to meet regulatory requirements and provide business leaders and stakeholders with accurate and up-to-date information about their environmental and social impact.

Typical AI use cases to achieve Sustainability 360

Tools like ChatGPT can be used to automate sustainability-related tasks, such as predicting energy consumption patterns and detecting potential sustainability risks. Additionally, AI-assisted learning can help companies identify areas for improvement in their sustainability practices.

ESG (environmental, social, and governance) and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) data are essential components of 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.
