As per ESG Today, the collaboration will allow Deloitte customers use IBM technologies, such as IBM Envizi ESG Suite, in combination with Deloitte's GreenLight Solution to be able to reduce carbon emissions in less time, while also streamlining sustainable transformation.

Christina Shim, Global Head of Product Management/Strategy, Sustainability Software at IBM, said that "this expanded collaboration with Deloitte builds on our ongoing relationship, making it easier for our mutual clients to apply a strategic lens to their sustainability efforts, enabled by Deloitte’s deep experience and capabilities in sustainable business transformation."

To deliver better and more accurate ESG data powered by AI, IBM acquired environmental performance data and analytics software provider Envizi back in 2022. IBM's environmental platform allows company customers, among other things, to assess the performance of decarbonization projects.

At the same time, Deloitte's GreenLight Solution, launched in 2023, helps other companies set out emissions-reduction plans with the power of AI, helping them achieve carbon neutrality without a hit in the economic performance.

Marcus Goetz, Partner and Global Sustainability and Climate Technology Marketplace Leader at Deloitte, said that "through integration of IBM’s Envizi with Deloitte’s GreenLight Solution, organizations can leverage their existing investments in IBM solutions to rapidly access the data needed, enhance insights and better understand their options for accelerated action toward their climate and sustainability goals."
