PROBLEM
STATEMENT SEVEN

Aggregate business operational data and calculate carbon emissions

The Problem

Climate change has brought risks and challenges to all industries including banking. Through three sustainability pillars (Responsible banking, Responsible business practices and Creating social impact), DBS is committed to work towards a lower carbon future to be resilient to climate change. It is important for them to use the universal metric – carbon emission - to understand their climate impact.

 

Currently the data aggregation and carbon emissions calculations are done manually, and the data might come from different sources and departments. There is a need to aggregate different kinds and formats of data automatically in one repository, and then automatically categorize and calculate their carbon emission. The aim is to have a more accurate and holistic view of the carbon emissions caused by daily business operations, so that they can strategically roll out measures to mitigate potential risks.

 

DBS is looking for solutions to help aggregate various daily business operational data and automatically calculate the carbon emissions to provide a holistic view.
