Terris is only as strong as the companies and industries we serve, which is why our business development is focused on helping clients either transition or enhance sustainability practises across operations.
Where once sustainable resource management might have been a nice-to-have, it is emerging as a must-have for corporations that intend to thrive well into the 21st century.
It’s why we are integrating the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our operations and why we talk about the UN SDGs in our business development.
Quite simply, the SDGs are where our corporate values and our future financial value intersect.
We are not alone.
On the eve of the COP26 global climate summit (Oct. 31 to Nov. 12 in Glasgow), expectations are high that world leaders will emerge with a solid plan on how to redirect trillions in public and private investment towards accelerated adoption of infrastructure and business practises that gets the world to net-zero emissions by 2030.
Helping to lead the financial conversation is the United Nations special envoy for climate action and finance Mark Carney, formerly governor of both the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England.
He’s the chair of the newly created Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, which has as its signatories, financial institutions that manage $90 trillion in assets. At COP26 these institutions, which include a number of Canadian and American banks, are expected to set interim carbon reduction targets and decarbonization plans.
While we monitor these global moves, we are instituting our own targets and plans that will enable us to meet our internal sales, marketing and environmental goals.
We start from the core belief that avoiding the adverse effects of climate change is everyone’s business, not just companies that sell environmental products.
We are specialists in earth intelligence.
Our cloud-based AI platform represents the next era of geospatial intelligence as it sources images and data from satellite, aerial, and underwater sources on-demand, and seamlessly fuses and projects 3D visualizations with AI-driven analytics to facilitate faster and more informed decision-making for any place on earth.
In our business development discussions, we are emphasizing that we can help ensure those decisions are sustainable too.
For instance, we can help with the transition to sustainable power generation. Renewable power, such as wind and solar power, are among the fastest growing electricity sources, and siting these new developments is becoming increasingly competitive. There is a trend towards remote developments due to a lack in suitable, available land, in or near urban centres, which is where Terris Pilot engine comes in.
It allows wind and solar energy decision makers to search and visualize targeted project locations, collaborating as a team to plan for the future. Clients can identify elevations, obstructions, solar irradiance, wind speed, and much more.
By integrating the U.N. SDGs into remote monitoring, companies are able to build strong and trusted relationships with local governments and communities.
That’s how you strengthen your financial value, by investing in your purpose and value, one relationship at a time.
