About Rimm Sustainability

Rimm was born from our founder’s experience in the investment banking industry, where he realized that there was a dire need for accessible, everyday sustainability solutions. This led to the creation of Rimm and our flagship product, myCSO, an end-to-end suite of AI powered ESG solutions. Our data scientists worked extensively with global sustainability cliques at large and small companies to create a comprehensive suite of tools that would appeal to ESG and sustainability practitioners with its utility, simplicity, productivity and outlay.

The meaning of Rimm

We believe in Sustainability for All. This means that sustainability should be accessible to all organizations, large and small.

Which is why we stand for Real Impact Matters Most.

We draw our inspiration from the idea of connection and simplicity. We want to relate to the people and our logo is an expression of such ideals and values. The curved edges create a friendly and approachable connection while the continuous flow between letters roots us in technology. A single line means that the start and finish can be extended to suit a number of different sustainability and ESG use cases, for every organization, no matter their size. We drive positive impact through technology and accessibility.

Our Vision

Rimm empowers all organizations to create positive impact and generate sustainable value.

Our Mission

We leverage science, technology and data to make sustainability accessible and actionable for all. Our proprietary tools, analytics and applications enable organizations to advance their own sustainable journey.

CEO’s Message

Sustainability is not just a goal, it’s a journey

At Rimm Sustainability, we have always believed that our success is intertwined with the well-being of our planet and its people. Our commitment to sustainability isn’t just a corporate responsibility; it’s a moral imperative. It is about safeguarding the environment and empowering communities.

Over the years, we have made significant strides in our sustainability efforts. However, the challenges facing our world are ever-evolving, and we must adapt to them. As a result, we developed myCSO suite as an intuitive product, paired with accessible, simplified content that also promotes awareness of ESG and sustainability. We can provide our clients with effective, efficient and customizable ESG solutions to interpret performance, set targets and understand where they are in terms of their progress toward larger sustainability goals. Most importantly, we want to make sure that these solutions are accessible to companies of all sizes and industries, no matter where they are on their journey, so that anyone and everyone can generate value from sustainability.
