EY and Microsoft Expand Alliance To Reach Net Zero Goals
The EY organization and Microsoft announced a deepened strategic relationship to develop ESG data management offerings more to support clients in achieving operational decarbonization and net-zero goals.
The two companies will address a host of sustainability needs through technology, including improving carbon tracking and reporting, facilitating value chain traceability of carbon, and developing enterprise carbon management solutions that support carbon capture businesses.
“Climate change is no longer a risk event on the horizon, it is happening here and now,” said Dr. Matt Bell, EY Global Climate Change and Sustainability Services Leader, in a statement. “Many organizations set ambitious targets to get to net zero by 2050, or earlier but face significant challenges to get there. Leveraging leading-edge digital technology platforms (including Cloud for Sustainability) and the engineering prowess of Microsoft, this deepened relationship is well-positioned to assist some of the world’s largest companies in tackling their biggest sustainability hurdles.”
“The inherent flexibility of the Microsoft Cloud combined with deep EY sustainability experience and development of business applications will allow clients to rapidly adapt and implement solutions that help them to meet their sustainability goals,” said Elisabeth Brinton, CVP, Sustainability at Microsoft. “This modular solution approach provides a highly scalable platform that utilizes artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analysis.”
