TCS, University of Auckland Business School develop ‘world first’ APAC Digital Sustainability Index


Indian outsourcing company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the Centre of Digital Enterprise (CODE) at the University of Auckland Business School to develop a claimed “world-first” APAC Digital Sustainability Index.

TCS says the new index will track the adoption and leverage of digital technologies by enterprises for their growth and transformation, and for discharging their social and environmental responsibilities, to create longer term value for all stakeholders - with the main goal of the Index to raise awareness of the role that technology is playing in transforming companies, governments and communities.

“The APAC-focused Digital Sustainability Index will evaluate current sustainability efforts undertaken by companies and governments, identify digital sustainability market leaders in the region, and uncover the factors critical to the development of sustainable digital solutions,” says TCS.

TCS said on Monday that a research report will uncover deep insights into key digital sustainability efforts around the region and rank these via the Index.

“The findings will be launched in mid-2021 and will highlight best practices, key challenges and opportunities for businesses and executives across the region. Subsequently, CODE and TCS expect to publish the index on an annual basis.”

“The University of Auckland Business School and the Centre of Digital Enterprise are very excited to be working with TCS and to be launching this index, which will help us better understand how technology impacts business performance, and how our world continues to evolve with the advent of new technologies,” said Ilan Oshri, Professor of Technology and Globalisation, Graduate School of Management, The University of Auckland Business School.

“Never has the impact of technology on the community and sustainable innovation been more relevant and more necessary,” Oshri added.

"TCS is thrilled to be partnering with the Centre of Digital Enterprise at the University of Auckland Business School, to launch the Digital Sustainability Index for the APAC region,” said Girish Ramachandran, President TCS Asia Pacific.

“Digital technologies are not only enabling innovative business models but are also leading to new pathways for enterprises and governments to support and empower local communities. By creating a clear evaluation framework for digital sustainability, we will be able to help businesses, communities and governments find new opportunities and celebrate the successes of their sustainability activities."
