CO2 AI by BCG - Boston Consulting Group

CO2 AI by BCG is an end-to-end, AI-powered disruptive solution that corporations from all industries can deploy immediately to quantify emissions—and find solutions to reduce them at scale. The solution enables exhaustive, accurate, and frequent quantification of emissions, including CO2e, water usage, waste, air pollution and other factors along a company’s full value chain. CO2 AI provides transparency and actionable recommendations to reduce a company’s environmental footprint. It covers all three scopes of emissions and is compliant with emission and accounting standards including GHG Protocol.

Built on the world’s smartest and most comprehensive sustainability database—enriched with proprietary algorithms and machine-learning models, — CO2 AI is not just a scalable web app for the sustainability team. It empowers strategic and operational decision making across an entire business, from product design to procurement to production to distribution.

CO2 AI has been successfully deployed in companies from multiple industries, including Customer Packaged Goods, Pharmaceuticals, Retail, Industrial Goods, among others. By helping companies accurately measure emissions, develop and perform multiple emission-reduction simulations, and optimize operations throughout the supply chain, CO2 AI quickly enabled significant CO2 reductions—and unlocked massive value:


  • Up to 30-40% CO2 emissions reduction
  • 30-50% baselining adjustment verses traditional methods
  • 50% Gap-to-target reduction through initiatives
  • Significant costs savings, for example, a 1% cost reduction with a 10% direct cut in carbon emissions was achieved by a steelmaker through process optimization

    Planful Predict - Planful

    TestHaving accurate financial data – and the ability to quickly consume it – is key to keeping companies, and specifically financial planning & analysis (FP&A) teams, prepared for unforeseen change. The obstacles that come with financial data include manual human error and budget padding, which can cause massive problems in credibility and stock performance, and misrepresenting the company’s financial health. Planful Predict, launched in June 2021, is a suite of AI-driven solutions intended to solve those challenges. Planful Predict currently offers two solutions in its portfolio, Planful Predict: Signals and Planful Predict: Projections. Both tools modernize traditional workflows, reshaping the current methods finance and accounting professionals use in three significant ways: ~ It operates as a high-powered digital assistant that works 24/7 to detect anomalies in data, identifying numbers that need further investigation by FP&A teams with speed and at a scale that humans cannot match. ~ It complements the work of skilled planners and analysts, enhancing their capabilities and freeing them from manual review duties so they can tackle higher-value work to drive better decision-making across the organization. ~ It doesn’t require third-party AI since AI/ML functionality is embedded in the application, which speeds operation, significantly enhances the user experience and eliminates security concerns. Planful Predict: Signals, made available in June 2021, helps solve common FP&A pain points by giving users the ability to detect anomalies in their financial data automatically and at a granular level. The solution gives users the ability to derive insights quickly and efficiently, and validate scenarios more accurately than ever. Predict: Signals, is one of the first solutions of its kind that leverages AI/ML technology to dramatically improve the accuracy of financial reports and plans thus, eliminating the need for detailed and lengthy manual reviews. Predict: Projections, launched in Predict: Signals in September 2021 as the second application in the Planful Predict portfolio, enables the rapid consumption of data, facilitating quicker and more informed judgment calls. It accurately identifies and processes millions of data points, making it suitable for even the most complex planning scenarios. Users, from novice to expert, will be able to auto-generate scenarios or values with confidence, removing up to thousands of hours of manual planning time per year. Predict: Projections learns from each planning cycle, sharpening its recommendations over time to give users confidence that they are building accurate financial plans and forecasts quickly. At its core, Planful Predict checks for errors, identifies patterns, and augments efforts with intelligent forecast recommendations using a native artificial intelligence engine.

  • CARA - StrikeReady

    StrikeReady offers a SaaS product that empowers security analyst(s) with real-time institutional knowledge and worldwide experiences of security analyst for better decision-making and response as they combat threats and transforms their SOC to be leaner, efficient and mature. 1. Cybersecurity Skill Gap: Majority of the security teams struggle with the deep understanding of every cybersecurity vendor's product’s granular capabilities, its strengths and its weaknesses. The excessive tools and massively overlapping features further compound the problem. In addition, the adversary always finds a new way to attack and only post-attack the new technique, tactic or methodology is discovered. 2. Cyber Fatigue – Security practitioners continue to experience burnout as they are bombarded with alerts. They get fatigued over time and occasionally run the risk of missing out on the most critical alerts. The majority of the security leaders struggle to fill open cybersecurity positions, and even if they do, they tend to experience a massive churn due to analyst burnout. 3. Collaboration and Remote Work – Organization tend to have various teams within the cybersecurity department such as SOC team, DFIR team, and others. These are often siloed and there is a lack of free flow of information among themselves, forget about best practices and other information between institutions.
