Unlocking business value through sustainability management software

In today’s environmentally conscious market, reliable and traceable sustainability data has become a cornerstone for companies aiming to navigate the complex terrain of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) regulations. Moreover, it offers a golden opportunity to distinguish themselves as leaders in sustainability.

The question then arises: how can sustainability management software serve as a tool to refine your business’s sustainability practices? Position Green, which helps companies simplify their ESG management, has delved into how to unlock business value with sustainability management software. 

Industries across the board are finding themselves under increasing pressure to gather, measure, and disclose a wide array of sustainability data. This necessity stems from a desire to lessen environmental impacts, make informed strategic decisions, and cater to the transparency demands from regulators, investors, and stakeholders. The challenge of managing such a vast set of data has been formidable for many, positioning sustainability software as a critical ally in tilting the scales towards efficiency and clarity.

How Can Sustainability Software Benefit My Business?

Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm,  recently recognized Position Green in its landscape report titled ‘The Sustainability Management Software Landscape, Q1 2024’. In the report, it sheds light on the pivotal role sustainability software plays in assisting sustainability and risk professionals today. The software simplifies the task of managing intricate sustainability data from a variety of sources, thereby catering to the demand for transparency and high-quality data essential for both decision-making and meeting the scrutiny of auditors and stakeholders.

Further, it aids organisations in developing a cohesive strategy, driven by data, to set and pursue sustainability goals. Through the use of clear visualisations, companies can track their sustainability efforts in real-time, identify areas for improvement, and conduct effective materiality assessments. Moreover, as government mandates evolve, such as the CSRD in Europe and proposed climate disclosures in the US, companies are increasingly seeking software solutions that automate and refine their reporting across various ESG standards and frameworks.

What Do Companies Expect From ESG Software?

The Forrester overview pinpoints several core functionalities sought after in ESG software, including sustainability data management, carbon accounting, reporting and disclosure, and ESG risk management. The adaptability of the software to evolving reporting requirements and the company’s sustainability ambitions is also highlighted as a crucial aspect.
