data for sustainability in the public sector

Breathing new life into the public sector

In today’s world, where 68% of the global population grapples with concerns about an uncertain future due to climate change, the importance of immediate action cannot be overstated. The public sector is in a unique position to lead the way towards sustainability, but it faces a critical challenge – a lack of comprehensive, up-to-date data. We help bridge this data gap and provide the insights necessary for effective climate action.

In the global effort to achieve sustainability, the public sector has a pivotal role of both player and referee. But it faces three main data challenges: the absence of baselines of standardized data frameworks, the underutilization of data in decision-making processes, and the lack of coordinated approaches to sustainability.

The public sector’s significance in the race to data for sustainability cannot be overstated. However, despite ambitious goals, government agencies and public organizations are struggling to keep pace with climate action. In this scenario, data emerges as the path for public organizations to a sustainable future. Data equips organizations with the ability to identify trends, make informed policy decisions, allocate resources efficiently, and devise targeted interventions to effectively respond to current and potential challenges, such as those posed by climate change. Yet, when it comes to climate action, leveraging data collection remains a key challenge for both the private and public sectors.

Establishing a robust data infrastructure, complemented by advanced analytics, is essential to empower the public sector to take decisive steps. By harnessing the power of data-driven insights and predictive analysis, government agencies can make informed decisions that not only preserve our environment but also enhance the quality of life for current and future generations.

In the face of climate change’s growing threats, we believe that data-driven solutions can redefine our collective future.

    Data and AI in the public sector

    Public bodies need to aggregate data from multiple systems and ensure it is of good quality.

    Compliance with the shift from voluntary to mandatory reporting demands trusted sustainability data.

      How we can help

      Our Data for Sustainability in the Public Sector offer helps public sector organizations to leverage data in a manner that allows them to define parameters, measure the carbon footprint of public services, and share this information across stakeholder groups to support them on their journey to net zero. The offer includes three pillars:

      • Data collection: We capture necessary information related to sustainability to allow progress and observability.
      • Data monitoring: We use analytics to optimize the usage of sustainability data for tracking and enhancing climate policies.
      • Data collaboration: We create opportunities to share sustainability data across stakeholders to a unified public repository with benefits for all.

      Underpinned by our Capgemini Carbon Sustainability Data Hub, our offer supports public services in monitoring and reporting their net zero goals with reliable sustainability data, accessible in a single secured data platform. It is also a decision-making enhancer by getting the relevant insights where they stand, best master their environmental information from scope 1 to scope 3, and accelerate joint action through data sharing.

      Data empowers public services not only to understand citizen needs but also to meticulously detect emerging trends. By harnessing the power of data analytics, organizations can refine their strategies and adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of public needs and preferences. This data-driven approach enables them to drive meaningful change and make tangible progress towards their sustainable objectives, strategically aligning their efforts with the dynamic demands of the society they serve.

      “AI is not a one-size-fits-all solution, but it does offer vast possibilities. To design the right applications we must understand the organization’s objectives and constraints, put ethical considerations first, and democratize AI and data by empowering people across the organization to work more effectively with them. The goal of AI should always be to enhance the human experience without placing any group at a disadvantage.”
