In this News Desk interview moment, Tom Smith speaks with Janina Bauer, Global Director of Sustainability at Celonis, during the company’s Celosphere 2022 conference in Munich. The two discuss the role of partners in building out the company’s sustainability product line to meet customer requirements.
00:33 — Partner and customer input have been a crucial part of the sustainability vision of Celonis. These applications cannot be developed alone; they heavily rely on data, which comes from various partners.
00:55 — Businesses need supplier ratings, carbon emission factors, and risk data — and that comes from partners. In two applications, Accenture has three partnerships.
01:15 — The new procurement application, the spend management app, works with EcoVadis and IntegrityNext data. Both are leading providers of sustainability ratings and many customers use one of them; now Accenture can help them integrate that data into the EMS.
01:35 — For the emissions piece, Celonis has a new strategic partner, Climatiq, which has an API-driven approach to emission factors and can bring carbon emission insights into any business process.
