Sustainability reporting and ESG reporting software
The depiction of ecological (environmental), social (social) and governmental (governmental) influences has become increasingly important in recent times and many companies can no longer imagine doing without them. Accordingly, extensive changes in sustainability reporting are imminent. Many companies are obliged to report on environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects for the first time by 2025. The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires approximately 50,000 companies in the EU to provide detailed sustainability reports as part of a digital management report - and many other international initiatives around the world are in the process of making this mandatory for non-EU companies as well.
Find the latest information from the current Exposure Draft of the European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS) in our blog post.
Below are the challenges that arise from the current reporting and publication process that can be easily implemented with our solutions:
- How to calculate, collect and consolidate the required data points by using solutions from AMANA partners.
- Using disclosure management software to be able to work collaboratively on the sustainability statements.
- Automate the data flow from various sources into management reports in order to eliminate manual and error-prone process as well as to optimize the last-mile reporting process.
- Options how to handle formatting and the production of glossy and ready-to-print reports in Word or InDesign as well as online reports.
- Digital tagging of sustainability and financial statements with the ESRS or ISSB XBRL taxonomy.
- Auditing and publication of the final report.
