Leveraging AI for Sustainability in SMEs: Introducing Improvability AI’s Sustainability ID Module.

The pursuit of sustainability in the business world is often seen as a complex and daunting task, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Confronted with a maze of inconsistent data, ever-changing regulations, and a multitude of standards, these smaller businesses face significant challenges in aligning their operations with sustainability goals. Unlike larger corporations, SMEs frequently perceive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations as secondary to their primary business objectives, often due to resource constraints and a focus on financial stability.


Understanding the unique position of SMEs in the sustainability landscape, Improvability AI has crafted a solution specifically designed to empower these businesses. The Sustainability ID module, co-designed by our OpenESG expert council, is a groundbreaking tool within our AI-driven platform, which has been meticulously developed to demystify and simplify the complex world of ESG metrics and reporting. Our platform is a result of comprehensive training on the leading sustainability standards and an analysis of sustainability reports from major companies, including those in the S&P 500. This training has enabled us to create a platform that guides SMEs in developing their own sustainability frameworks and policies, allowing them to take meaningful steps in their ESG journey without being overwhelmed by the process.

The Sustainability ID module is particularly noteworthy for its focus on the needs of SMEs. Recognizing the gap in the market for an accessible, cost-effective, and practical sustainability standard for smaller businesses, we crafted this module to provide an entry point into sustainability that is both comprehensive and easy to implement. Our intention is to make sustainability attainable for SMEs, removing the barriers that have traditionally kept these businesses from engaging effectively in ESG practices.

The development of this module was informed by a combination of our founders' deep experience in various relevant sectors and the insights from our Expert Council. This council, comprising independent experts from business, science, academia, and NGOs, has played a crucial role in shaping the scoring methodology of the Sustainability ID. By analyzing and distilling the essence of leading sustainability standards, we have identified the most actionable and impactful metrics. This focus on practicality is particularly beneficial for SMEs, as it shifts the emphasis from elaborate policy and strategy development, which can be resource-intensive, to straightforward, implementable actions.

Another key aspect of the Sustainability ID is its stance against greenwashing. In the current climate, where many companies are criticized for lofty sustainability policies with little substantial action, our module stresses the importance of tangible actions over mere declarations of policy. We guide SMEs in understanding and focusing on fundamental metrics that affect both their financial health and their impact on the environment and surrounding communities. This dual focus on financial and environmental/social impact – known as double-materiality – ensures that the Sustainability ID aligns with the real-world needs and capabilities of SMEs, encouraging progress and improvement rather than perfection.
