Supporting ESG Strategies with Enterprise Recommender Systems and Knowledge Graphs

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is increasingly becoming the central guiding principle for companies in all industries. ESG need not remain an imposed compliance constraint for companies, but can also provide a wealth of opportunities and ideas for how organizations can evolve. However, once ESG is recognized as a major opportunity, it quickly becomes clear that this set of issues is extremely multi-layered, complex and interconnected. Knowledge-based enterprise recommender systems promise welcome support in enabling personalized views of ESG-relevant content. This presentation will report on the development of an ESG knowledge graph that serves as the core of several applications, including an enterprise recommender system that generates personalized views of relevant ESG content.
