SX indicates the transformation of business and corporate management established to improve society’s sustainability and enhance corporate value. In recent years, various companies have been working on SX. For such companies, it is important to disclose an extensive amount of sustainability information to stakeholders and business partners. However, in many cases, they encounter difficulties in accumulating, visualizing, and analyzing such information. 

“SX Data Station” utilizes Google Cloud’s BigQuery*¹ and provides such functions as managing sustainability information, analyzing non-financial information, and estimating risks generated by changes in global circumstances. It will help enterprise customers make business decisions more smoothly. In addition to “SX Data Station”, Marubeni and DOLBIX will provide their knowledge of various industries’ businesses and digitalization for the consulting service and support customers in resolving challenges regarding corporate management and SX.

Marubeni has positioned “Green Strategy”*² as one of its basic policies for its Mid-Term Management Strategy GC2024*³ and the Marubeni Group aspires to be a forerunner in “Green Businesses.” Marubeni and DOLBIX will contribute to improving sustainability across the whole of society by collaborating with Google Cloud Japan G.K. and providing various customers with the knowledge obtained from the execution of this “Green Strategy.”

*¹ One of Google Cloud’s main products, which realizes data processing with high performance.
*² The expansion of businesses which have positive impacts on the environment (“Green Businesses”) and the promotion of “Greening,” such as reducing negative environmental impacts in all business domains.
*³ Mid-Term Management Strategy GC2024:
