Sustainability Reporting Software

Sustainability Reporting Software

Award winning sustainability reporting software driven by a unique spatial and temporal database of impact factors

Leading businesses make sustainability reporting software a core part of their strategy. That’s because being a sustainable business means being a successful business: reducing costs, addressing customer priorities, treating people fairly and meeting objectives in turn leads to greater interactions, and higher turnover.

Ecometrica’s Sustainability Reporting software is an end-to-end environmental accounting and sustainability management solution. It is used by the world’s largest companies to collect a diverse, georeferenced data set, often going well beyond traditional sustainability reporting to include streams of useful information on other key corporate indicators such as water, forests and biodiversity.

Sustainability Reporting Software Features

Sustainability Reporting Software for Business Travel

Business Travel

Business travel is inevitable in any modern business, and removing it altogether is almost impossible. It is not only carbon intensive, especially in the case of transatlantic flights, but also expensive. Conference calls are an option, but nothing can replace the conversations that take place in a proper face-to-face meeting.

Tracking your company’s business travel from a sustainability reporting perspective can not only cut your emissions, but also reduce your costs. We have worked with businesses that have saved five or six figure sums by analysing their business travel emissions and spend, only to discover that there are many areas where they can reduce travel, replace expensive options with cheaper ones, or remove it from the balance sheet altogether.

Sustainability Reporting Software for Donations

Donations

Ecometrica’s Donations module enables you to track your charitable donations and volunteering time as standard, with other options available as required. This can be added to your overall environmental and CSR dashboards to build a complete sustainability reporting picture.

Sustainability Reporting Software for Donations

Go beyond emissions accounting and get into resource monitoring – account for your staff’s net worth to the 3rd sector as part of a total sustainability reporting programme.

We work with many large corporate clients to track the value of their donations to charitable organisations, as well as the volunteering hours that their staff have undertaken, including costs to the company in terms of time and salary. This works similarly to tracking staff project hours in financial accounting software.
Log time donated to charity work by your staff and associated costs
Track your charitable donations to various sources to add to a complete EHS picture
Monitor your resources using custom dashboards
Display your reports on a company intranet with live updates
Download audit-ready files for inclusion in your EHS or CSR reports

Sustainability Reporting Software for Paper

Paper

Businesses and organisations have moved towards making the tracking, management and control of paper consumption a key component of their sustainability reporting strategies. This is not only out of care for the environment – moving towards a paperless environment saves money, improves connectivity and productivity, saves space, increases security and reduces risk.

Sustainability Reporting Software

Using our Paper module you can easily track your paper consumption by weight, either at point of purchase or when you dispose of it.

We work with many large corporate clients to manage their paper use as part of a total sustainability management strategy, and a move towards a paperless environment. We can do the same for you.

Create custom reporting dashboards for analysis and follow-up
Display maps that show which global offices consume the most paper
Set targets to reduce paper consumption over time
Sustainability Reporting Software for Social

Social

The Ecometrica Platform’s Social module is a collection of social responsibility data points that allows companies to measure, analyse and report on a comprehensive range of social-related questions, from fairly simple staff training and development metrics, through to examining whether the company’s activities are supporting – or inadvertently threatening – the basic human needs of people in its global operations.

The analysis and dissemination of social and environmental metrics is also critical for impact investors, who look for long-term sustainability as well as financial growth from their portfolios. Comprehensive, transparent metrics on social and environmental concerns allow investors to clearly see where funds should be allocated for maximum return over time. The Ecometrica Platform’s Social module, combined with other Sustainability modules like Ethical and Supply Chain, can be used both by impact investors to track their portfolios or assess risk from new investments, or organisations looking for funding to prove their social and environmental credentials.

The Social module can be fully customised to suit the questions your organisation wants to ask, with current examples covering a wide range of topics:

Staff training and development
Gender split and pay equality
Population growth and movement
Human trafficking, child labour and modern slavery
Humanitarian and charitable action
Employee safety and security

THE MODERN SLAVERY ACT AND SUPPLY CHAIN TRANSPARENCY

As of October 2015, under the Modern Slavery Act established in March 2015, all companies doing business in the UK with a turnover of £36m or more are required to deliver an annual statement covering how they are preventing slavery and human trafficking taking place in their supply chains. If the company is taking no steps to combat slavery, this must also be disclosed.

According to the International Labour Organization, around 21 million men, women and children around the world are in some form of slavery, estimated to generate profits of $150bn annually.

Business Drivers to Address Modern Slavery

Risks

Reputational damage
Loss of market share
Legal sanctions

Benefits

Increased consumer confidence
Improved employee morale
Exceed legal requirements

What Do Companies Need To Do?

Businesses covered by the Act must publish a “slavery and human trafficking statement” setting out the steps it has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its supply chains and within its own business.

While the Act does not prescribe on the exact contents of this statement it does provide some guidance on what might be included:

Companies’ due diligence processes relating to slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains;
Reporting on the parts of companies’ supply chains where there is a risk of slavery and trafficking taking place, and how to assess and manage it;
Reporting on staff training on slavery and human trafficking;
Reporting on companies’ effectiveness in ensuring that slavery and trafficking are not taking place in their businesses or supply chains.
Sustainability Reporting Software for Waste

Waste

It’s no secret that we are running out of space for landfill, and so finding alternative methods of waste disposal has never been more important – especially for organisations who hold high standards of business ethics, want to become more efficient and increase security.

Sustainability Reporting Software for Waste

The Ecometrica Platform’s Waste module initially enables you to perform a data collection and interrogation exercise to track incinerated, recycled and landfilled waste, set targets, and monitor your progress with weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual reports.

The flexibility of the module’s question groups also allows you to add your own bespoke data points and targets for specific project tracking, should you already be participating in external recycling schemes or in-house drives to change employee behaviour.

You can also:

Track specific waste streams from confidential waste and cardboard to batteries and even hazardous waste
Evaluate emissions vs. landfilled waste over time
Set emission reduction targets to include incineration and recycling
Create reports that compare your waste disposal changes over time, in line with CSR targets
Move towards smarter purchasing in conjunction with our Ethical module

Sustainability Reporting Software for Water

Water

Increasingly, forward-thinking organisations who want to map their entire environmental profile are interested in technology that has the ability to map water impacts. This includes not only gross water consumption across a value or supply chain, but also more complex calculations such as consumption relative to drainage basin water scarcity.

Ecometrica provides multiple solutions to monitoring current water related risk factors, ranging from daily situation alerts to longer term trends and future predictions.

The Ecometrica Water module contains a global water scarcity dataset that can be deployed and integrated into your existing software setup for full reporting and analysis.

The Water module can also produce water scarcity reports for our existing Sustainability Management customers without the need for any new information to be entered, as the Sustainability modules will already have the information they need to retrieve drainage basin water scarcity data.

Ongoing measurements of water status of soils and freshwater bodies
Estimation of water stress on crops and natural vegetation
Risk of run-off and surface water pollution
Daily flood extent
Analysis of frost and snow trends and anomalies
Discovery and performance of water resources

Evaluation of water as an asset

Case Study:
