Why sustainability matters

There is an urgent need for big business – the largest influencers of economies, society and consumers of our planet’s natural resources – to act now on sustainability initiatives. Corporations have a financial imperative to act: sustainability performance is impacting revenue.

Organizations are increasingly being required to record and evidence their actions in support of their sustainability claims. To provide that evidence, transparent data is needed and must be shared with investors, trading partners, customers, business rating agencies, various ESG reports and regulators.

Beyond business necessity, data transparency will become an inevitable requirement in giving customers the opportunity to make more informed choices.

Greenwashing – being misleading about how a company’s products are more environmentally sound – will not be tolerated. Failing to back up sustainability claims with hard data will lead to lawsuits, fines, reputational damage, investor withdrawal and lack of consumer trust.

Regulatory & capital markets
Regulatory demands from governments, economic trade unions, investors and third parties are growing and evolving at a fast pace.
Brand reputation
Brands and organizations differentiate themselves from the competition with social and environmental actions. ESG ratings are now an important factor in vendor/supplier selection.
Consumer satisfaction
Consumers' choices are increasingly influenced by the sustainability footprint of the products and services they consume, often driving complete change to business models.

The problem of managing sustainability data

The vast array of sustainability reporting standards and certifications makes it a complex and error-prone process – with significant consequences – to manage and govern the collection and reporting of sustainability data.

The 600-plus standards that exist today are just the tip of the iceberg. Behind many of these standards are subcategories and sector-specific processes.

 

Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), for example, is one standard with more than 77 different industries and over 30 disclosure statements in each document. Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is another standard that operates across more than 140 different topics.


The number of permutations of standards grows very large, as does the amount of data required.
