Engineering sustainable enterprises 

In the contemporary global landscape, sustainability has become a cornerstone for both nations and businesses, underscored by compelling data. One hundred and ninety-three countries have adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), making them a universal agenda. There’s a paradigm shift underway in the corporate world, with a surge in businesses aligning their strategies with the SDGs. The shift is evident in the significant increase in sustainability reporting.

In the evolving landscape of business strategy, sustainability has transitioned from a peripheral consideration to a central focus. Organizations are actively incorporating it into their business strategies, no longer questioning its importance. Virtusa is well-equipped to guide them through this transformation with our tailored approach, assisting companies at various maturity levels in aligning with ESG and net-zero targets. We bridge the gap between disruptive technology and business outcomes to connect multiple ecosystems to enhance your sustainability initiatives, ensuring they drive innovation and efficiency, not just compliance.

Key challenges faced by organizations

Navigating the sustainability landscape presents organizations with a myriad of challenges, encompassing regulatory complexities and the imperative for robust data and transparency.

In the pursuit of sustainable practices, organizations can proactively address the following challenges:

  • Lack of knowledge and understanding of changing regulations: Incomplete understanding of evolving sustainability regulations, hindering compliance efforts
  • Lack of awareness of products and strategies: Limited awareness regarding sustainable products and strategies, impeding effective implementation
  • Lack of robust data, consistency, and quality: Insufficiently robust, consistent, and high-quality sustainability data hampering informed decision-making.
  • Lack of transparency and traceability leading to greenwashing: Lack of transparency and traceability exposes organizations to the risk of inadvertently promoting misleading green credentials
  • Complexity in reporting, inconsistent ratings, and lack of standardization: Dealing with the intricacies of reporting, inconsistent ratings, and a lack of standardization, posing hurdles in demonstrating sustainable practices accurately
  • Lack of digitization and analytic tools for ESG reporting and tracking: Inadequate digitization and analytic tools for comprehensive ESG reporting and tracking, limiting the efficiency of monitoring and improvement initiatives

It is crucial for organizations to overcome these obstacles, authentically embrace sustainability, and contribute meaningfully to a more environmentally conscious future.
