Greenstone adds CSR reporting frameworks mapping functionality to its non-financial reporting software

Greenstone has launched a new CSR framework mapping functionality enabling organisations to consolidate reporting frameworks to minimise risk and increase efficiency when reporting against multiple frameworks.

The sustainability and CSR reporting landscape is constantly evolving. Organisations reporting their sustainability and CSR performance can refer to or use a variety of international and national frameworks, such as GRI, TCFD, MSCI, CDP, SASB and DJSI. However, the increasing number of frameworks, and navigating different definitions, deadlines and data requirements, can lead to inefficiencies and inconsistencies for reporting organisations.

Social and environmental impact measurement and reporting – research insights

Greenstone recently conducted an extensive piece of research on social and environmental impact reporting. Due to an increasing maturity and awareness of sustainability issues and their potential risk to businesses and communities, there is an emerging trend in this area of company reporting.

With so much information available, it is not always clear for businesses that want to provide better sustainability disclosures where to begin, what to consider and what to be prepared for.

In this 3-part blog series, we will provide an overview of the key findings of this research to inform our clients, partners and a wider audience about existing trends and challenges in the impact measurement and reporting space. We also aim to clarify some misconceptions around terminology and valuation methodologies that currently exist in the field.

Greenstone adds Initiatives Savings Module to its non-financial reporting software

Greenstone has added an Initiatives Savings Module (ISM) to its non-financial reporting software. This new functionality enables Greenstone’s clients to track, monitor and report consumption, carbon and financial savings against environmental initiatives implemented across their organisation.

Greenstone has developed this functionality as a result of its clients’ increasing requirements to monitor and report environmental projects across energy, water, waste and paper. These initiatives vary from the installation of LED lighting or new servers that reduce energy consumption, to changes in industrial processes that result in significant water savings, to behavioural change initiatives that reduce paper use or increase recycling.
