Before looking forward, let’s recap the things on our front burners in 2021.
The intensity of global sustainability efforts has placed its lack of useful professional tools into stark relief. Companies, already struggling with capacity, deserve a complete set of timesaving, flexible, interactive tools.
Valutus added several such arrows to our quiver over the last year, designed to cut weeks or months of difficult work from tasks like performing materiality analyses, setting carbon targets, determining how to make commitments more credible, and aligning a corporation’s promises with its purpose and performance.
We also enhanced the ability to quantify customer preference for sustainable products and companies using Customer Science™, and put hard dollar values on that preference via the InVEST™ model.
And we crafted the most useful and up-to-date way to stay on top of what stakeholders expect (Stakeholder Science™), what issues are accelerating toward us (VIEWS™ and E3Evolution™), and how seeing over the horizon can help craft more robust scenarios and strategies (Scenario Science™).
Plus, we revisited and updated our analysis of emerging risks and coined the term “Total Carbon Ownership” for the increasing tendency of regulators, customers, and the legal system to hold organizations accountable for their contributions to the climate crisis.
