Cognizant to expedite sustainability transformation with Microsoft 


Cognizant to expedite sustainability transformation with Microsoft 

Cognizant is expanding its collaboration with Microsoft to accelerate both digital and sustainability transformations through a new solution – the Cognizant® Sustainability Accelerator, powered by the Microsoft Cloud and Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability. This innovative solution combines both Cognizant's deep experience in IoT and data analytics with Microsoft's industry-leading cloud capabilities. - Cognizant

Cognizant and Microsoft are showcasing this robust solution together at COP27, taking place this week in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. 

Corporate sustainability is more than a nice-to-have, optional initiative for companies in today's economy. To grow, thrive, and manage risk, companies must incorporate sustainability into their strategies, operations, and cultures.

Investors, regulators, employees, and consumers all expect companies to radically reduce or even eliminate their negative impacts while finding ways to provide value and improve outcomes for people and the planet. And stakeholders expect robust reporting to hold companies accountable to their stated goals.  

The Cognizant® Sustainability Accelerator, built on the Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability, is designed to significantly accelerate the implementation of sustainability data acquisition and visualization. This, coupled with Cognizant's sustainability advisory expertise, will help clients identify, prioritize, automate, optimize and report on sustainability actions.

Accurate data and digital capabilities sit at the center of helping companies determine the appropriate actions and demonstrate accountability.

We are focused on accelerating progress to realize a more sustainable future, and our collaboration with Cognizant's Sustainability practice, to bring the innovative Cognizant® Sustainability Accelerator to market will provide customers with data driven insights so they can make decisions and implement the digital solutions that will help them accurately measure and report on their sustainability goals and progress. 

Elisabeth Brinton, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Sustainability

The Cognizant® Sustainability Accelerator automates the collection of data and provides valuable analytics that allows clients to track and take action on their sustainability goals. Utilizing Microsoft Sustainability Manager, Cognizant delivers end-to-end capabilities required to automate the collection, analysis, and reporting of sustainability efforts.
