Digital sustainability index

The Centre of Digital Enterprise has partnered with Tata Consultancy Services, a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, to develop a world-first APAC Digital Sustainability Index - a clear evaluation framework helping global enterprises understand the impact of technology on sustainable innovation.

What is the Asia Pacific Digital Sustainability Index?
Defined as the creation and use of digital resources to maximise the value delivered to the community today and in the future, the main goal of the Digital Sustainability Index is to raise awareness of the increasing importance of these efforts for companies, government, and communities.

The Index identifies companies and countries ahead of the digital sustainability curve in Asia Pacific and aims to help remove barriers to sustainable innovation.

Rolled out across the region, this research demonstrates the value of digital sustainability, while also highlighting standout businesses, governments and those making a real difference in Asia Pacific. It also provides strategies for businesses to strengthen their efforts.

Why is this important?
The Asia Pacific Digital Sustainability Index:

  • Helps us better understand how technology impacts business performance, and how our world continues to evolve with the advent of new technologies.
  • Brings digital sustainability to the forefront of conversations, which is often overlooked and misunderstood in wider conversations on sustainability efforts.
  • Creates a clear evaluation framework for digital sustainability to help both businesses and the community to find the opportunities and celebrate the successes of their sustainability activities.
  • Helps us understand the impact of technology on the community and sustainable innovation.

How does it work?
The Index evaluates current sustainability efforts undertaken by companies and governments, identifying digital sustainability market leaders in the Asia Pacific, understanding who is at the forefront and uncovering the key factors critical to the development of sustainable digital solutions.
