Over the years, Persefoni has created a leadership position, facilitating financial institutions, asset managers and global corporations from several industries to calculate their emissions in a manner that is auditable and compliant with Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PACF) procedures.

The "ERP for Carbon Data" approach of Persefoni has enabled companies to estimate their overall carbon footprint for mere manual and consulting-based costs with increasing trust and transparency in the outputs.

The Climate Management & Accounting Platform of Persefoni focuses on international gold standards of sustainability frameworks. It avoids proprietary approaches to data sourcing and calculation, which create gaps when it comes to trust and eventually disclosure issues due to lack of audibility.

CGI provides complex, mission-critical transformation programs and services to enhance and boost efficiencies in both the private and public sectors. CGI's client proximity model is used to its maximum advantage to support clients with skills and resources in the selection, contracting, implementation, and operation. The offerings include IT integration, business consulting, infrastructure and BPM services. For clients to design and implement their target business operating model, CGI brings local market knowledge and sector expertise.

"CGI has built a reputation as one of the world's most respected IT and business consulting firms, with recognized expertise providing its customers market-leading solutions. Persefoni is delighted to be working together to introduce our award-winning Climate Management and Accounting Platform to CGI clients and help them as they plan strategies to collect data, manage, disclose, and then execute on their decarbonization journey." – Persefoni CEO and Co-founder, Kentaro Kawamori.

"CGI is deeply committed to leading on climate change action, both as a global organization and in supporting our clients as we all tackle this complex problem. We are very pleased to be building this relationship with Persefoni, whose innovative climate platform is based on data management and transparency – two areas where CGI has significant experience," said Mark Boyajian, Executive Vice-President, Chief Business Engineering Officer and Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) Forum representative, CGI.
