The Digital Discovery Audit is currently free, so there has never been a better time to identify your priorities for investing in digital solutions...



The Oren Marketplace has launched a new solution - a Digital Discovery Audit, which offers mining companies a tailored expert appraisal of the digital transformation opportunities for their business. The service has been developed to identify a company’s key priorities for investing in digital solutions, after which these priorities can be matched with the best solution providers in the mining industry.

The Digital Discovery Audit is currently being offered for free, for a limited time only, so there has never been a better time to identify your priorities for investing in digital solutions.

A key feature of the Oren Digital Discovery Audit is the bespoke and comprehensive insights that it provides to users, which come directly from the platform’s two founders, IBM and Shell. These insights are summarised after a structured Oren workshop, for which participants are also able to make use of an online assessment tool. 

Once these insights have been received, companies have a solid foundation on which to build their digital strategy. Users can then access the Marketplace to engage the suppliers that meet the specific needs identified by the audit.

Oren is the world’s first B2B digital marketplace for the mining and industrial sectors. Created from a partnership between Shell and IBM, Oren aims to support and accelerate digital and sustainability transformation across the end-to-end value chain of the mining industry worldwide

Target markets and consumers

The Oren Digital Discovery Audit has been developed for global mining companies, working in the world’s principal mining regions - the Americas, South Africa, Australia and Indonesia. 

The insights that IBM Consulting and Shell have curated are designed to assist mining company CEOs, CTOs, and mine general managers to shape their enterprise’s technological strategies; but the workshops and online assessment tool also contain practical content that is relevant to the work of sustainability leads and transformation directors as well. 

Benefits of signing up to an Oren Digital Discovery Audit

As the modernisation and digitisation of the global mining industry gathers pace, the audit gives clarity to mining companies as they seek to harness digital solutions to improve their safety culture, production efficiency, sustainability and profitability. 

The Digital Discovery Audit matches companies with the solutions that will help them to succeed, safe in the knowledge that all solutions featured on the Oren Marketplaces have been thoroughly researched and field-proven.

Learn how to future proof your business for a zero-carbon world with help from Emitwise and the Oren Marketplace...

How do we get the world to net-zero faster?

Emitwise’s founders, Mauro Cozzi, Eduardo Gómez and Ben Peddie, approached a network of more than 100 of the world's largest enterprises and asked their CEOs, CFOs, and sustainability managers the big question: How do we get the world to net-zero faster? The challenge many shared was the lack of timely and accurate emissions data to enable strategic decisions. Companies often relied on annual audits of their carbon footprint for carbon accounting purposes. However, static yearly results were outdated upon publishing.

Emitwise saves companies an average of 260 working days a year by automating their scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions data. With the added benefits of clean audit trails and auto-populated accounting reports in line with GHG Protocol, all at the click of a button. Their easy to use solution enables businesses to quickly identify the carbon hotspots to target, and the precise real-time data empowers teams to remain agile and respond effectively, making achieving those goals possible.

Unique AI Technology

Emitwise’s unique AI technology empowers businesses to automatically measure, report and reduce their carbon footprint across their operations and supply chain, future-proofing companies for a zero-carbon world. It is the only solution that enables companies to fully automate their carbon accounting across all business units and suppliers, therefore liberating them from the drudgery of collecting and processing emissions data.

By using artificial intelligence to precisely measure emissions in real-time, businesses can identify and tackle carbon hotspots swiftly, enabling them to devise a trackable roadmap to net-zero carbon. At the same time, accurate audit trails and auto-populated annual reports ensure that companies comply with international reporting requirements, and align businesses with global climate targets to mitigate risk across their operations and supply chain. 

The Oren Marketplace

Environmental management, social license to operate, safety, renewable energy to lower emissions and operational efficiency for mining can be supported by a range of digital solutions enabling dynamic operations. To address these issues, Shell and IBM joined forces to create the Oren Marketplace – the first B2B solutions platform for the mining sector. 

With the adoption of many of the digital solutions offered through Oren, mining companies can adapt in real-time to risks or adjust plans ahead of a problem occurring. The goal is a shift towards proactive management as the optimal outcome for all stakeholders – community, shareholders, and employees.

Emitwise was founded with the goal of helping industries across all sectors reduce their carbon footprint. Similarly, Shell aims to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, or sooner, in step with society and its customers. And Oren is focused on offering innovative products and services that can help mining companies track and reduce their emissions. 

“Oren is the starting point for how we help our mining customers to de-carbonise,” explains Carol Chen, Global Lubricants Marketing, Vice President, Shell. “It’s our ambition to work with sectors like mining to help them find their own pathway to net-zero emissions through collaboration. The Oren marketplace offers a great opportunity for collaboration between the miners and technology companies that are joining this digital marketplace.” 

Web Summit

Emitwise will be showcasing its vision for a net-zero future live from Lisbon at this year’s Web Summit. Bringing together the people and companies redefining the global tech industry, the online event welcomes 100,000+ attendees from around the world to hear from more than 800 speakers and view offerings from 2,500 startups covering a vast range of topics from Data Science and Climate Change to AI and Machine Learning. To find out more and book your ticket visit Web Summit.
