C-Suite Series: Alcumus’ Commitment to a Healthy Planet, People, and Business
We have recently announced our organizational ESG commitment (using Science Based Targets), as we do our part to help the world reach net zero by 2050. We will use our cloud-based solutions to track our ESG score, continually holding ourselves accountable both internally and with our investors.
ESG criteria are a set of standards for a company’s operations, and socially conscious investors are using ESG criteria to screen potential investments. The considerations include: how a company impacts the health of the natural world and ecosystem (Environmental), how a company cares for your staff, customers, suppliers, and communities (Social), and how a company deals with leadership, corporate accountability, audits, and controls (Governance).
How an organization cares for its employees, including their daily health and safety, has been at the core of Alcumus’ mission and goal in North America since inception. We eliminated 1 million workplace incidents in organizations across North America and reduced our customers’ use of paper through the digitization of forms, checklists, and countless documents, with the help of our suite of digital safety solutions. In our next phase, we provide a broader reach of tools and resources to further measure an organization’s ESG stewardship.
Businesses, local authorities, the non-profit sector, and many other organizations recognize doing well and doing good go hand in hand. Increasingly, organizations turn to technology to deliver on their potential, recognizing data visibility is the key to intelligent analysis and timely, accurate decision-making. Information flows which rely on spreadsheets, notebooks, and pen and paper are susceptible to gaps, mistakes, and inconsistencies – all of which can undermine responsible business.
Alcumus helps to connect sustainably-minded companies with responsible contractors and suppliers, using sustainability as the ‘golden thread’ which builds ‘mutual partnerships’ as the bedrock of better business. Through these partnerships, which drive data visibility and coherence, we strive to drive deeper understanding of sustainability’s risks and opportunities – leading directly to actions and progress that inspire organizations to do even more, with clear returns for their stakeholders and their people.
We invite you to read more about our commitment to environmental social governance, and to follow along on our journey. If you are considering how you can tackle this for your own organization, we’d love to talk to you about how Alcumus can help.
