      What we do

      Empowering clients to confidently adapt to the evolving regulatory landscape and implement and monitor their ESG KPIs, guided by Capgemini’s strong data management and governance.

      As regulatory requirements progress towards sustainability data mastery, Capgemini’s data and AI portfolio provides expert guidance and a suite of solutions to meet mandatory compliance needs across operations.

      This includes:

      • ESG monitoring and reporting
        “The reporting requirements of regulations across the EU, US, and APAC region are pressing organizations to be in control of their ESG data. By leveraging Capgemini’s data management and governance, and ESG data discovery with generative AI, enterprises can drive fundamental changes to align with all necessary requirements. Our Sustainability Data Hub empowers organizations to master their ESG data by ensuring data audibility and lineage while reducing costs. With Capgemini’s data and AI, companies can future-proof their sustainability efforts avoiding greenwashing and stay ahead of evolving regulatory mandates.
      • Supply Chain compliance and performance
        A true net-zero position without understanding the full end-to-end lifecycle costs of your business is impossible to drive. Moreover, being able to proactively evaluate your supplier, ESG or climate risks, quantify your Scope 3 emissions; or comply with growing number of  regulations such as Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDD), EU Digital Product Passport (DPP) regulation, Environmental labeling under AGEC, EU Regulation on deforestation-free products, the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD), or Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) will be a differentiating factor.
      • Capgemini’s data and AI expertise helps clients accurately estimate, track, report and manage these risks by:
        • Designing and implementing a supplier risk management data platform by Collaborating with ESG data providers
        • Mapping and monitoring the extended supply chain
        • Applying advanced analytics to model emissions impacts
        • Leveraging AI/machine-learning (ML) for predictive insights and optimization, fill the data gaps or automating the creation of alert and score risk

      Through specific solutions such as the Sustainability Data Hub, ESG lens and ESG data readiness, combining regulatory expertise, data-driven insights, and cutting-edge AI and GenAI capabilities, we enable clients to ensure compliance and traceability of their supply chain drive impactful transformations, and future-proof their ESG reports

      Leveraging data and AI to drive ESG initiatives towards sustainable transformation across the business value chain, from finance and procurement, supply chain, R&D and operations to marketing and sales.

      Achieving true environmental and social impact will happen with major transformation programs throughout an organization’s entire value chain and stakeholders’ ecosystem. Data and AI serve as the linchpin to deliver business value enabling organizations better manage their suppliers and products, lead their decarbonization and energy transition, accelerate their operational efficiency, and increase transparency in diversity or workplaces conditions:

      • Optimizing resource usage, reducing waste, water and energy, and ensuring ethical sourcing practices.
      • Product design and manufacturing: Analytics inform design choices, minimize environmental impact during production, and improve resource efficiency.
      • Customer engagement: Leveraging customer insights to better understand Sustainability business opportunities.
      • Leveraging GenAI in specific areas such as risk management to analyze data to predict potential climate and social risks associated with operations, enabling organizations to take proactive mitigation measures.

      Our approach goes beyond just carbon accounting and ESG reporting and disclosures. Capgemini first helps clients gain a comprehensive understanding of their current sustainability data and AI maturity level. Data and AI empowers businesses to identify hotspots, evaluate the risks, anticipate future scenarios, collaborate with partners, and implement targeted reduction strategies across their value chain.

      With this baseline established, Capgemini can then tailor solutions to meet each client’s specific needs, enabling them to master data to unlock AI and GenAI sustainability business cases, advance their sustainability goals while analyzing and minimizing their overall footprint. This holistic approach drives comprehensive transformation by embedding sustainable practices into the core of the client’s business operations and decision-making processes, ensuring lasting positive impact across all facets of the organization

      Through an unwavering commitment to sustainability, powered by data and AI, our community is driving change within our clients while transforming and upskilling themselves to ensure environmental efforts and foster a culture of diversity and inclusion across the organization.

Data and AI are a foundation to drive change and create positive impact for the planet and people, and our community of more than 30,000 people is committed to serving the planet and fostering transformation within our clients as well as in Capgemini. As the technology is evolving incredibly fast, we are continuously upskilling to ensure it is used in a responsible and sustainable manner. Key examples of this include:
