Sustainability software provider, Sustaira, announces beta version of their Enterprise Sustainability Application Platform to address ESG data challenges.
Just months after formalizing partnerships with Siemens Digital Industries Software and low-code application platform Mendix, Sustaira proudly announces the launch of the beta version of the Sustaira Sustainability and ESG Application Platform. Among the first customers of Sustaira are organizations of all sizes, in different regions, and within a variety of industries, such as conglomerate Siemens Canada, renewable energy solutions provider Inovateus Solar, Xavier University of Louisiana, and manufacturer Logistick, Inc. This beta version of the platform allows users to explore and demo the various Sustaira applications, such as ESG and Sustainability Goals and KPI Tracking, Emission Calculators, Carbon Accounting including Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, reporting and disclosures. For organizations interested in learning more, they can request early access to a trial and demo account.
As organizations across the globe are feeling the growing pressure from the changing regulatory ESG disclosure requirements, the need for agile software in this domain is rapidly accelerating. Following disruptive mandatory ESG reporting announcements in Europe and Asia, North America is rapidly following at the Federal, State and Local level, e.g., SEC proposed rules and California’s Climate Corporate Accountability Act. Vincent de la Mar, Founder and CEO at Sustaira, comments:
“We see a growing pressure and urgency for organizations to disclose their ESG data, both quantitative and qualitative. This goes beyond environmental impact and addresses social topics, such as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. SEC’s recent announcement will cause a ripple effect among not only the larger, but also small and medium enterprises to provide the necessary transparency. That being said, we also see a growing pressure from the younger generation of talented employees. Going beyond the shareholder and truly outlining ESG goals, measuring Sustainability KPIs, and taking action are a must have in this next chapter of running a successful organization.”
However, the challenges these organizations are facing to meet these demands are significant: The data is often siloed and comes from disparate sources. There are many error-prone manual processes and excel spreadsheets. Functional requirements are changing on an ongoing basis per region, framework, and policy. Lastly, organizations have many rigid core systems in place that are unable to keep up, thus leading to inaccurate reporting and a lack of action. These are real and urgent problems for many organizations and, according to research firm Verdantix, it’s estimated that to gather this data, verify and report it over the next three years, over $6.7B will be spent.
The positive news is that lessons learned from software development and solutions outside of this ESG domain can be applied here to have a direct positive impact. Sustaira is uniquely positioned to support organizations overcoming these challenges and to accelerate success within their sustainability and ESG journeys.
First, Sustaira offers a broader portfolio going beyond Environmental reporting, also addressing Social and Governance topics.
