The world is asking for change

Sustainability is the most pressing issue of our time for the environment, employees and consumers, society and providers of capital.

It will take everyone working together to solve this puzzle. At EY, we believe this starts by business putting sustainability at their core, creating value for business, society and the planet. We call this value-led sustainability, and we believe it’s is bigger than any one business. It’s everybody’s business.

We also have the convening power to bring everyone along for the journey: where everyone has a role to play in realizing new solutions that work beyond business to society as a whole.

Held annually, the EY Open Science Data Challenge produces new IP that drives more intelligent, information-driven and better decisions in mitigating global sustainability issues, such as climate change. EY makes this IP available to NGOs, governments and scientists for non-commercial purposes.

Working together, we can scale our impact through data, AI and technology to collectively build a sustainable future for society and the planet.
