Sustainable data mining
a technological approach to aggregate company-level sustainability data automized

What is sustainable Data Mining?

Sustainable Data Mining (SDM) is like Data Mining but with domain knowledge in the field of sustainability as a major component. Sustainability experts work closely together with data scientists to process publicly available data to provide easily understandable, specific sustainability information.

This data technology collects, analyses and manages companies' sustainability efforts, available on the web. SDM is able to extract information, to determine data quality, and to benchmark to data of similar companies. By including sources like social media, images and other open data sets, SDM predicts information that goes even beyond the companies own knowledge.

What are the business benefits of SDM?

Sustainable data mining makes it possible to integrate sustainability data automatically in business decisions like SCM and CSR tasks, which makes organizations more profitable, flexible and responsive. It drastically speeds up data acquisition and processing time. SDM enables to reach sustainability targets efficiently.

SDM is noninvasive and can be rapidly implemented to accelerate sustainable actions. Hence it’s ideal for automating workflows that involve big data sets such as sustainable procurement, sourcing or collaboration.

Why is SDM transformative?

SDM technology is changing how businesses decide on their supply chains. It turns getting basic certifications from handwritten formulas to getting an estimation on how a company drives sustainability and therefore how profitable it remains in the future. It's not only about greater meaningfulness, but experts are released from inefficient process tasks and can focus on the things they do best and enjoy more: creating innovative world-class supply chains.

Transform your business end-to-end
SDM adoption lies at the center of many enterprises’ sustainability transformation efforts. Learn why SDM is so powerful and necessary directly from our happy customers.

Is SDM the same as AI ?

SDM is not artificial intelligence but it serves as a foundation for it. Connecting SDM to AI unlocks massive new possibilities for enterprises everywhere. And at a time when companies need to accelerate their integration of AI as well as sustainability into front-line operations and decisions, SDM can serve as the key for AI-operationalzation and to reach sustainability goals.

Data Mining

What is Data Mining?

Data mining combines methods from statistics and machine learning to extract usable data from large data sets. To be able to scale up, effective data collection and warehousing is required. Discovering relationships among data is important in a variety of fields e.g. identifying credit risks, understanding customer segments and fraud detection. Data mining automates this process by finding patterns and correlations using sophisticated mathematical algorithms.

Key Features of Data Mining:

Ingestion of any type of data from various data sources

Creation of decision-oriented information

Prediction based on likely outcomes

The Team

Ecotrek was founded 2020 out of a hackathon at Google Berlin. We decided to rethink sustainability
in the context of business decisions. In July 2022, ecotrek was acquired by EcoVadis to complement its portfolio of solutions advancing the scope, speed and quality of ESG visibility and impact across global value chains.

We understand the complexities and the manual process involved in the traditional way of sustainable supply chain management - and that's exactly why we invented new data-driven technologies to collect and manage sustainability information about companies and making it actionable through technology.
