It’s been fun in 2023 writing a blog post in ChatGPT,  marketing copy on Writer.com or dreaming up a new image on Midjourney - but how can AI really save me considerable time (and money) in my daily workflows


And most importantly…can I trust the data in the answers?


This is particularly relevant for professionals in sustainability, climate, ESG, and supply chain fields, where the demands of compliance, regulation, and the pursuit of innovative solutions for challenges like decarbonization are ever-growing.

Build your private secure AI knowledge library and then use prompts to supercharge your work

With Improvability you can build your own AI knowledge library, that the AI will query first. Add files - PDFs, Docs, CSVs etc. What’s different with us is that library doesn’t disappear after 30 days or when you logout; you can download docs you’ve uploaded to the database; and files can be up to 1Gb in size. 


Also like Scale.com, we focus on removing hallucinations from data, so you can trust in the results. A great example of this is in this video where we ask the system to return exact waste management data for a company - and compare it with other platforms. And while our models are trained specifically on sustainability, ESG and Climate data - you can use the platform in a wider context as well - for example with all your supply chain data.


And because we are Generative AI native. Improvability doesn’t suffer from the legacy software issues and complexity that existed before Generative AI. Even though legacy software is trying to bolt it onto their complicated User Interfaces, it doesn’t really work - you have to native from the ground up to be cost effective and fast with Generative AI.


If you're an existing customer, who has been building a knowledge library with us, you can use these prompts to help on reporting, discover new solutions, analyze your supply chain and so much more. If you're not a customer yet - well why not join us right now


Without further ado, let's dive into the list of the top 30 AI prompts from Improvability AI, each carefully curated to maximize your professional impact in the realm of sustainability.

This is where Improvability AI excels. We’ve had so many sustainability professionals that have saved so much time and cost with the Reporting and Compliance features we offer, because we remove hallucinations, enable trust in the data with our Pro features, and our sustainability models are trained on S&P 500 company and SME data and research.

Prompts:

1. write a detailed report about [MY COMPANY] [SUBJECT] strategy with latest data


This is where we shine. You will be surprised at just how accurate AI can be with Improvability. We built a database of public data at certain companies which enables us to accurately deliver answers to such a detailed question, which showcases what you can do with your data and AI knowledge library.


So for example you can ask:


> Write a detailed report about my company decarbonization strategy with the latest Scope data from my private AI knowledge library


You can change out “decarbonization” for anything else like biodiversity, water usage etc - provided you have uploaded data or information -  and you can work from your knowledge library with documentation about your company or a company you are working with, or just use our verified public database.


Check out this video for an example on a Scope 3 reporting prompt, comparing data results from Perplexity and ChatGPT, to see how we are ahead on this.




Additional Prompts:


2. Suggest what [COMPANY] can do to improve our [SUBJECT], by suggesting some solutions and improvements

Improvability AI is a great tool for sales and marketing teams looking to identify and craft strategies for new customers. That’s because Improvability AI has a database of primarily S&P 500 public companies with verified sustainability and climate data, which gives you much more targeted results that the general information that non specialist tools like ChatGPT and others will return. You can see the difference in the video below for one of the prompts. This also showcases what you can do with your data and AI knowledge library.

In the example above, we uploaded a public document which is an overview of Climeworks product offering. We then created a prompt about developing an email copy that highlights the unique advantages of my product Climeworks, and provides a clear call to action for the Chief Sustainability Officers to take advantage of the offer. You’ll see the result in the video!


Note: You can request more companies to be added and verified to our database - just email us at support@improvability.ai the list companies you’d like us to add, so you can analyse them using our AI platform. This saves you uploading and searching for companies yourself. 


Sales and Marketing Prompts for Sustainability Companies and Teams


So this is where we can really help you. Upload your data from any supplier management tool that you have for tracking and assessing supplier performance. While our models are specifically trained on sustainability/ESG and climate data, they can also work with any supplier data. So for example if you have Ecovadis or other data just upload it.

Note: if you are having trouble getting supplier data, especially Tier 2 or 3 suppliers, or find Ecovadis to be too expensive or slow - you can use our Sustainability ID module to get the data. It’s brand new, a dynamic transparent and free way to source the data, and suppliers can get badges and web pages to showcase their progress. We only charge to verify the data, but not to collect it.
