What we are solving for

Sustainability is complex.
Our solutions are designed to help your company overcome these barriers.

Increase visibility

o9 helps solve issues around limited visibility. Our solution identifies key environmental impact data within supply chains and presents a roadmap for mitigation initiatives.

Higher fidelity

Companies struggle with fidelity when mapping environmental impact data, relying on assumptions and secondary data. o9 seamlessly acquires, validates, cleanses, and harmonizes ESG data into the EKG model to inform more accurate decision-making.

Link siloed data

Siloed sustainability data is mostly disconnected from core enterprise planning, execution systems, and business strategies. o9 connects sustainability data with core supply chain planning objectives in a single platform.

Adapt to changing regulation

Organizations need the capacity to respond rapidly to changing compliance and regulation. o9 makes companies agile to changing requirements while still meeting operational performance objectives.

processes into supply chain planning

Sustainable operational planning

Boost your supply chain plans by adding environmental metrics to your decision-making. Forecast by understanding the trade-off between cost, service level, and environmental impact

Sustainable strategic planning

Does o9 have a defined set of criteria to measure sustainability?

Yes. International standards define our criteria. We compute a range of sustainability KPIs and track them against set targets. We then balance these with conventional supply chain KPIs.

Can individual companies customize the platform?

Yes. Customization is an essential element of the platform architecture because companies in different industry sectors have varying requirements and use different combinations of standards.

How does the Sustainability Solutions relate to o9’s existing solutions?

Standards-based sustainability measures are seamlessly integrated with the existing digital twin model to optimize sustainability KPIs with traditional performance indicators.

What makes o9 Sustainability Solutions different in the market?

Existing platforms available on the market today can be characterized as point solutions that exist outside of the core enterprise systems that companies use to manage their operations and supply chains.

To fill this gap, we have extended our core supply chain modeling technology including sustainability metrics and KPIs as optimization variables in a single platform.
