Whilst spreadsheets are flexible to set up, they offer limited capabilities beyond data storage and basic, manual reporting. They also require a significant time investment to administer, collate data and report from. As Freshfields looked to their future reporting requirements, there was concern that this approach was no longer fit for purpose.
Freshfields had a number of areas that they were looking to improve on from within their existing processes, specifically maintenance of emissions factors, robustness of data collection and calculation, live centralised monitoring of performance and compilation of data for reporting to frameworks such as CDP. Furthermore, Freshfields hoped to deliver these improvements alongside internal time savings.
To achieve these goals, Freshfields were seeking an intuitive, robust, efficient and auditable platform with the capability to report on scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG and waste, paper and water reporting requirements, for its 27 offices in 16 countries around the world.
Having reviewed their options, Freshfields chose the Ecometrica Platform to allow them to manage their reporting.
