A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11915506B2) discloses a processor-implemented method for sustainability measurement. The method involves collecting organizational data from various sources, extracting this data using data-crawling mechanisms, and processing it to generate matrices representing words and indicators. By calculating similarity scores between sentences and indicators, the method identifies matching indicators for each sentence and measures the sustainability of an organization based on the majority indicator category found in the collected documents. The system also classifies sustainability documents based on extracted features like numerical presence, data features, units of measurement, and sentence length, providing a comprehensive approach to sustainability measurement.

Furthermore, the patent also describes a system and a non-transitory computer-readable medium for sustainability measurement. The system includes hardware processors, a communication interface, and memory storing instructions for collecting, extracting, and processing organizational data to measure sustainability. Similarly, the computer-readable medium contains instructions for performing the same sustainability measurement process. Both the system and the medium focus on identifying indicators matching sentences, extracting features, and classifying sustainability documents based on the majority indicator category. By utilizing advanced data processing techniques and similarity calculations, this patented technology offers a systematic and efficient way to assess and measure sustainability within organizations, providing valuable insights for decision-making and strategic planning.
