In the past years, governments and companies have dedicated significant efforts to establishing regulations and standards for sustainability in the domains of environment,social and governance (ESG) and building compliance for internal & external sustainability reporting. Still, there is the need to more deeply embed sustainability targets and actions in day-to-day operations along the entire value and supply chain. While methodology around sustainability is evolving, use cases for digital technologies (e.g., blockchain) are not exhaustively applied, yet. What are the best IT tools, software, and systems to embed sustainability in business? How to choose the right tool for which ESG initiative? The goal of the thesis is to create a conceptual framework of suitable digital tools for ESG-related processes based on astudy using semi-structured expert interviewsand to generate implications for business who consider adopting such tools. The thesis will be supervised by Christina Kannegießer.
