The main challenges of ESG reporting

“I'm constantly running after people to get the invoices for ESG reports”

“I need to check if the data is correct by comparing it to the previous data”

“We hired a manager to collect data and prepare reports”

“I'm constantly running after people to get the invoices for ESG reports”

“There are no ESG standards at the moment, and everyone uses a different framework”

“We can't properly estimate Scope 3 emissions, because we don't have all the data we need from our suppliers”

Scopes of emissions

Sustainability services

Source: Greenhouse Gas Protocol

The defined three scopes cover the emissions produced during the whole product lifecycle, from the product’s design and pre-processing, through its actual creation, and to exploitation and utilization. While the direct company emissions and the purchased electricity and natural resources (scopes 1 and 2) are relatively easy to calculate, the data disclosing the emissions produced by third-party supply chain members (scope 3) is challenging to collect and validate.
