Harnessing AI-Powered Solutions for Sustainable Pension Plan Management: A Case Study

Pension plan managers and asset owners can revolutionize their sustainability reporting approach using AI.


The rising significance of responsible investing has driven asset owners and investment managers to consistently monitor and evaluate the environmental influence of their portfolios. Conventional techniques for collecting, assessing, and reporting sustainability data are labor-intensive and time-consuming. In this case study, we showcase the immense advantages of incorporating advanced AI-powered solutions, like 15Rock's Athena platform, to enable prompt, accurate, and all-encompassing sustainability reporting for pension plans and asset owners.
