Actual, the first-of-its-kind ESG Transformation Platform, today announced its recognition as Business Intelligence Group's' Sustainability Product of the Year in the 2022 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
“Companies want to make good on their ESG pledges, but without a plan in place, they risk falling behind.,” said Actual co-founder and President, Karthik Balakrishnan. “We are honored to receive this recognition alongside other groundbreaking sustainability initiatives and companies, and look forward to continuing to provide a platform that allows companies to implement longevity and action into their ESG plans.”
In the wake of COP26, over 90% of global GDP is covered by a net-zero mandate. Currently, 136 countries have made net-zero commitments, which account for about 83% of global emissions, and many of these emissions are due to the activities of private enterprise. Yet today, most enterprises are limited by a singular focus on carbon accounting and reporting, and lack a plan to actually achieve net zero. Actual enables enterprises and governments to bridge the chasm between the mandates and pledges they are bound by and the action that they need to take. Actual's ESG Transformation Platform allows leaders to build, evaluate, and execute on sustainability plans which can be updated in real-time and evolve as lessons are learned, new technologies become available, and costs change. At its core is a collaborative model which allows all stakeholders, from executives and experts to regulators, community members, and investors to come together and evaluate the plan in a single system of record. Actual's model-first approach is specifically designed to help companies break through analysis paralysis and build momentum towards embedding sustainability into their business models and meeting net-zero and corporate pledges.
“We are proud to reward and recognize Actual for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
