The project is a key component of Orica’s Net Zero strategy, specifically its AUD37 million (USD27 million) Kooragang Island Decarbonization Project.

Cognizant will leverage Orica’s existing technology investments, specifically its Microsoft Azure data lake, and provide Orica with a single ESG data platform. This platform is expected to capture and curate Orica’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data, with the goal of enabling Orica to monitor, report and forecast its GHG emissions reductions and track the origination of Australian Carbon Credit Units.

Chris Crozier, Chief Information Officer of Orica, said: “We needed a trusted partner with a similar focus on ESG goals and sustainability and one with an expertise in data analysis, AI, design and IoT.”

Cognizant has earlier worked with Orica to move its IT infrastructure to the cloud to enable Orica to achieve higher levels of efficiency, business impact and optimize operating costs.
