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.
