Matching what matters to your organization to what is both expected and material to your industry
Your team likely has put a lot of effort into being the best corporate citizens you can be, every industry has rating agencies that are looking for specific data that must be provided, we facilitate the discovery phase of what really matters and what you need to both report on and invest into meet your goals.
Metrics that matter
Once we identify what matters we put the means to measure what matters it in place so that the data can both be trusted and delivered in the most cost-effective way possible.
Implementation / Integration
All of this requires application systems to feed the ESG repository as well as data integration. Attempting to consolidate and retain this data in a spreadsheet-based approach will end in: Shame, failure, unemployment, and cost overruns.
This ranges from public facing information that highlights your impact on the community to rating agencies, regulatory agencies, and internal stakeholders.
Common data elements we start with:
Scope 1 and Scope 2 Emissions / GHG. This reporting is accomplished based on data loaded from many internal & external systems, as well as leveraging pre-determined GHG calculations and leveraging Data Forms where needed.
Renewable Energy Use. This mitigates your GHG totals and is comprised of: Wind, hydro, geothermal, and solar energy.
Waste measurement. This is comprised of not only waste produced but corresponding waste avoided based on recovery and recycling.
Employee Population Dynamics. This holds an almost infinite number of permutations with far reaching implications that require clear input from human resources, legal and the leadership team.
Employee Recruitment / Retention. This reporting captures the acquisition and loss of talent and can be a measurable driver that helps convert goals and messaging into actions for real change.
Compensation Ratios. This is a very public and important group of metrics. Examples range from multiple Gender comparisons to the gap between leadership compensation levels and the most junior staff.
Diversity Reporting. There is a great deal of interest in this metric and even more ways to measure it. We work closely with your human resources, legal and other stakeholders to provide reporting on this this important set of metrics.
Accidents / Mortalities. Depending on your industry these metrics are closely monitored.
Financial / Operational. There is an alignment of financial data that demonstrates your commitment to frameworks and targets. How you invest in renewable energy, people, the community is important and must be known by stakeholders.
Governance. This puts your companies’ policies and your own “Report Card” on display. That marking is based on data, and we make sure it can be counted.
Alignment to Targets. Well known and public companies get ESG scores from rating agencies, and these are based on the many frameworks that are available and really matter a great deal when compared to not only your peer group, but to all companies being measured. It is a very big deal and impacts who will do business with you, who will invest in your company, how you are perceived in the community and more. You need to commit to targets that are not only attainable but meaningful because you will be judged.
We provide the platform, data & reporting to make this possible.
