The Importance of Decision Intelligence for ESG Governance

Recorded by Quantexa

Data quality and ethics are topics high on boardroom agendas today. And with data insights increasingly more integral to business decision-making, including for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives, C-suite leaders need confidence that the data they are using is reliable, trustworthy, and of high quality. And if an organization uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to make the most of its data, ensuring outcomes are explainable to key stakeholders is a must.

Quantexa CEO Vishal Marria recently sat down with Bina Mehta, Chair at KPMG in the United Kingdom, for an in-depth conversation on the critical role that data plays in today’s C-suite — helping business leaders to make better decisions, manage risk, increase efficiency, and more. The two also reflect on the global professional services firm’s long-standing partnership with Quantexa, and how KPMG helps businesses like Quantexa to accelerate their growth.
