Partnership adds to Exiger's suite of AI solutions, making most comprehensive and reliable sustainability score available to the market in advance of 2027 Scope 3 deadline
WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Exiger, the SaaS company revolutionizing the way corporations, government agencies and banks manage supply chains, announced today a new partnership with Muir AI, a climate technology firm focused on reducing emissions within supply chains. Responding to the growing need to achieve rapid and substantial reductions in carbon emissions, the partnership tackles the most complex part of corporations' carbon footprints.
Exiger has built the largest risk data network in the world. When combined with this data network and Exiger's advanced supply chain mapping technology, award-winning AI and proprietary data, Muir's emissions data will enhance Exiger's environmental risk offering, empowering corporations to make faster business decisions to achieve net zero commitments with accuracy and confidence.
Businesses are being called to make and report on carbon reductions, but obscured supply chains and a dependency on supplier self-reporting have proved to be stubborn roadblocks. This has pushed many organizations towards ineffective spend-based carbon accounting methods, hampering their ability to effectively evaluate and manage their emissions. The new offering is designed to equip stakeholders across procurement, sourcing, sustainability and the C-suite with the automation and insight necessary to choose the right suppliers.
"With over 80% of carbon emissions coming from the value chains organizations are connected to – rather than the organizations themselves — a company's ability to reduce carbon emissions is entirely dependent on their ability to gain transparency into multi-tier supply chains," said Erika Peters, Exiger's ESG lead and SVP, Head of Innovation and Operations. "This partnership further expands our environmental risk scoring and Scope 3 capabilities ahead of the 2027 deadline, not only providing granular carbon emissions data across products, suppliers and geographies, but also streamlining the data collection process, automating and documenting how emissions are calculated, and surfacing real-time insights into the strategies that will drive the greatest impact."
"We fundamentally believe that every company must consider emissions as part of its suppliers' risk profiles. By partnering with Exiger, we can leverage the data provided within 1Exiger to deploy our analytics, without requiring any additional customer data. This is a huge step forward in terms of scaled sustainability, and it allows us to meet a customer wherever they are on their journey," said Muir CEO Harris Chalat. "We want to make supply chain emissions data more accessible, impactful and truthful; our partnership with Exiger allows us to do just that."
Customers can choose from several Exiger solutions, ranging from a seamless, rapid baseline for supply chain emissions to peer-to-peer emissions comparisons and evaluations, to a comprehensive high-touch offering that supports direct buy programs transitioning to more sustainable suppliers. These solutions offer the most comprehensive and reliable sustainability score in the market as well as a level of visibility, auditability, speed and scalability that is essential for corporations hoping to satisfy a growing number of GHG reduction requirements.
