Turn sustainability from a cost to return and central part of your business

Sustainability data and ESG reporting

Would you like to give your company’s sustainability experts more time to focus on work that actually promotes sustainability? The EU’s directive on sustainability reporting will be applied starting from the beginning of 2024, so now is the time to start making more use of digitalisation in managing your sustainability data. Better management of ESG data turns data into information that creates value now and in the future.

Do you need support for the digitalisation of sustainability data, data collection, larger projects involving sustainability data system change or system procurement? We understand the challenges in sustainability data management, such as issues related the quality, analysis and verification of data.


Why digitalise the management of ESG data?

EU legislation guiding towards verifyable data

The EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will be applied starting from the beginning of 2024. The Directive will make sustainability reporting mandatory to a broader set of companies. It also requires systematic and structured development of sustainability data management. In addition to CSRD, CSDDD (Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive) as well as directives on Ecodesign and so-called Green Claims place ESG data at the core of business activities.

Ensure high-quality and up-to-date reporting

Collecting sustainability data is often manual and time-consuming work. The necessary information and sources of information are various, and the availability and quality of data often pose challenges as well. Overlapping and, in the worst case, repeated reprocessing of information makes data collection challenging and ineffective. By developing the cooperation between your sustainability and IT departments, you can ensure that your company’s digital capability is being developed as well, from the collection of sustainability data to its utilisation.

Reduce risks

By developing your company’s digital capability in the management of sustainability data, you can ensure business continuity, improve risk management and increase the resilience of your business. However, it can be difficult to correctly target any measures if you don’t have a full picture of your company’s sustainability data. When your ESG data is structured and systematically documented, it is also easier to verify. Gofore can help you compare different kinds of ESG software, so that you can choose the one that works best for you.

Utilise the collected information in your business activities

Improve the quality of sustainability data and the management of data by combining data with your company’s financial information. You can utilise the collected data more efficiently for various purposes. You can evaluate, measure, monitor and make predictions of your company’s sustainability work more easily, regarding both your own operations and the entire value chain or develop more sustainable products/ services and new business. Developing the management of ESG data helps speed up the external sustainability reporting in digital form. Through digitalisation, sustainability can be turned from a cost into something productive by bringing ESG data the core of your business activities.
