Background

Impact reporting can take many different forms and is 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. 

Ecometrica Sustainability is a flexible data collection, analysis and reporting platform. 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. 

Three examples of impact reporting using Ecometrica Sustainability are presented below. Get in contact to understand how Ecometrica Sustainability could help your organisation’s reporting.

Social Impact Reporting

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 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 much 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.

  • LBG (previously the London Benchmark Group)

    Supplier engagement

    Engaging suppliers can often be piecemeal and disjointed getting different data from different suppliers. Align data collection with a structured question collection from Ecometrica Sustainability. 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 have on your organisation. Alongside greenhouse gas data, you might need to know their own carbon targets, social engagement, 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.

    As a rapidly growing business reporting to the CDP for the first time presented some challenges. With a lot of hard work in the CR team, help from around the business and invaluable assistance from Ecometrica we’re delighted that our first reporting submission to CDP has been recognised as a success.”

    Suzanne Westlake, Head of Corporate Responsibility & Corporate Affairs, Ocado

    “After two years of completing environmental reporting on our own, we decided that partnering with an expert was more efficient and would give us greater certainty over the science and the calculations. We reached out to Ecometrica because they’re one of CDP’s gold-level software partners. As a data analytics firm familiar with the complexity of the process, we asked many questions of the Ecometrica team before signing on. We’re convinced that we made the right choice.”
