Why choose Smart Data Service

To implement effective sustainability strategies, adopt good governance practices and ensure regulatory compliance, organisations are increasingly required to collect, manage and report on a wide array of sustainability data. This creates multiple challenges:

  • Data quality, format and availability can vary considerably
  • Data collection and reporting periods can be monthly, quarterly, annual or multi-year
  • Reporting must cover distinct, misaligned or overlapping time periods
  • Conversions are needed to show total consumption, expenditure and emissions
  • Other indicators may also be required (E.g. intensity ratios, base-year and benchmarks)

Unsurprisingly, for many companies, the effective management, collation and reporting of their sustainability data can be a time-consuming and resource intensive process. By using our Smart Data Service, organisations not only drive improvements to the quality and coverage of their sustainability data and reporting, they also significantly reduce the internal staff burden typically associated with reporting and compliance.
