TEMPE, Ariz., March 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Persefoni, the leading Climate Management & Accounting Platform (CMAP) for enterprises and financial institutions, today announced a Teaming Agreement with leading IT and business consulting services firm CGI. The two companies have teamed up to deliver Persefoni's market-leading climate platform, supported by CGI's local consulting, IT integration, and managed service solutions.

As first-to-market with category-creating end-to-end digital calculation capabilities for operational and financed emissions, Persefoni has quickly cemented a leadership position helping asset managers, financial institutions, and global corporations across a wide number of industries calculate their emissions footprint in a manner that is fully auditable and compliant with both Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) methodologies.

Persefoni's approach as the market's first "ERP for Carbon Data", is enabling companies to calculate and disclose their global carbon footprint at a fraction of the traditional manual and consulting-based cost, while radically increasing trust and transparency in the outputs. Persefoni's CMAP focuses on the world's gold standards of sustainability frameworks, avoiding proprietary approaches to calculation and data sourcing that create gaps in trust and ultimately disclosure problems due to lack of auditability.

CGI delivers complex, mission-critical transformation programs and services to improve and drive efficiencies across the private and public sectors. CGI leverages its client proximity model to support clients with the right blend of skills and resources throughout selection, contracting, implementation, and operation; these offerings include business consulting, IT integration, infrastructure, and BPM services. CGI brings local market knowledge and sector expertise to help clients design and implement their target business operating model.
