Leading businesses recognize that environmental sustainability is good business. Whether driven by a desire to protect the environment, reduce costs, meet growing consumer demand for eco-friendly products, or comply with increasing regulation, sustainability can benefit both the environment and the bottom line.
New technologies are enabling insights for intelligent decision-making—including environmental impact considerations that were never thought possible at scale, let alone in a cost-effective manner. Oracle solutions help optimize resource management, value chain management, reporting, and many other areas.

Disruptive technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and blockchain are driving unprecedented environmental and business innovation by supporting holistic decision-making and groundbreaking research. Thriving startup communities are leveraging these technologies to deliver new solutions—and, in many cases, to build entirely new business models, such as the sharing economy.

Information technology is key to enabling more impactful, far-reaching, and cost-effective results. We take pride in recognizing our customers’ success in using Oracle solutions to deliver positive impacts.
