Intertrust and Plan A Partner to Support Companies with Trusted ESG and Climate Data Solutions
Plan A’s decarbonization and ESG optimization platform and Intertrust’s governed data fabric enable accurate, seamless and automated reporting of carbon emissions and ESG performance for large enterprises that stakeholders can rely on to make informed decisions
Berlin and San Francisco, July 12, 2022 – Most enterprises perform ESG assessments manually with tremendous efforts going into data collection and understanding the variety of reporting standards. Results are prone to errors, inaccurate and costly, and hard to compare with other results, undermining confidence and trust in the reports. Emissions Management and ESG reporting are highly amenable to data-driven AI technology, yet the data sets required are often inaccessible due to enterprise confidentiality policies and other regulations such as privacy laws.
In order to remedy this situation, Plan A, an award-winning corporate decarbonization and ESG optimization solutions provider, and Intertrust, the world’s leading data rights management provider, have partnered to provide credible, secure and accurate emissions and ESG management and reporting services at high scale. Under the terms of the partnership, Intertrust will offer Plan A’s decarbonization and ESG software as a part of its Intertrust Platform climate partner program, delivering the best-in-class AI and business analytics solutions, combined with extensive trusted data capabilities driven by Intertrust Platform. Enterprises using the Plan A/Intertrust stack can automatically generate accurate, compliant and comparable ESG reports by analyzing data sets spread across and between enterprises. This makes ESG reporting highly scalable, time efficient and cost effective, but also provides secure, trusted and auditable results that provide investors with confidence needed for trading in this domain.
