Impact Reporting

Reporting the positive impact of your business requires data. The Ecometrica platform allows for robust data collection, calculation and reporting for all your metrics.

Impact Metrics

Impact metrics take many different forms and are often bespoke to every organisation. While protocols provide a framework for data collection and reporting, aligning it to different businesses structures and priorities requires careful consideration.

Collect Data

Ecometrica’s platform enables flexible data collection, analysis and reporting. Use ready-made questionnaires and metrics, or define your own. Collect data across all geographies to the granularity you need without the worry of version control or missing data.

Social Impact Metrics

Ecometrica Sustainability has a host of pre-made question collections for reporting on corporate donations, employee volunteering and pro-bono time. Individual users at the site/team level can enter data alongside bulk uploads so you can be sure you don’t miss any data.

Track your social impact metrics down to individual offices, teams and geographies. Learn from teams that are performing well and contributing to social impact targets. Use seniority levels to calculate value of time volunteered/offered.

Reflect corporate exchange rates and operating currencies to align with already active financial reporting systems with fully transparent calculations. Collect information such as charity type, number of days volunteered, charitable cause, and many more.

Framework Alignment

With all your data in one place, it’s ready to be extracted for any framework or report. If you’ve had to report to multiple frameworks at once, you will understand the challenge of version control, maintaining control over formulas, and getting responses in a transparent manner.

Ecometrica Sustainability is built from the ground up to tackle these issues, and to allow for simple data reporting. Slice and dice your data to fit the framework you report to, retrospectively apply categories to data for a new framework, or add more data points as needed.

Frameworks include:

  • UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • LBG (previously the London Benchmark Group)
  • GRI
  • UN PRI

Supplier Engagement

Engaging suppliers can often be piecemeal and disjointed when getting different data from different suppliers. Align data collection with a structured question collection from Ecometrica’s platform. Ask for primary data for full transparency, or options for proxy data where primary data is unavailable.

Collect quantitative and qualitative data side-by-side to fully understand your suppliers. Alongside greenhouse gas data, you might need to know their own carbon targets, social engagement as well as exposure to reputational and regulatory risks.

Manage risk in your supply chain by using a mixture of Ecometrica Sustainability and Ecometrica Supply Chain Monitoring to fully understand geographic risk factors.

Visualise and track

Use the wide array of visualisations and dashboards available to help you track your impact down to the asset level to contribute to your ambitious target.

Custom categories

Different businesses have different requirements. Ensure you are reporting in the way you want to the standards you want.

Flexible data

Enter data once and use it for multiple protocols, outputs and reports without the worry of version control or formula changes.

Key Phrases

Greenhouse Gas (GHG)2023-01-16T20:45:23+00:00

A greenhouse gas (GHG or GhG) is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range, causing the greenhouse effect.  The greenhouse gases (GHG) included in the atmospheric emissions are those covered by the Kyoto Protocol: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). These gases contribute directly to global warming and climate change, because of their positive radiative forcing effect. The potential of each GHG to cause global warming is assessed in relation to a given weight of CO2, so all greenhouse gas emissions are measured as carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e).

Emission Factors2023-01-16T20:46:26+00:00

Emission factors are conversion factors applied to activity data to enable the conversion from raw data to estimated GHG emissions. In calculating GHG emissions from a particular source, geographically relevant and up-to-date factors should be sourced, and care must be taken when selecting the factor.
