Define and assign ESG & GHG metrics on the Zuno Carbon platform

May 7, 2024

With this latest feature, we’re excited to introduce new ways to manage ESG and GHG metrics within your organization.

We understand that data points can be scattered across different teams and people. From conversations we had with sustainability practitioners, we found out that many of them struggle with getting the right data from the right people, making sure the data they input is accurate, and educating data owners on timely submissions.

Hence, our revamped data input workflow aims to streamline the process for inputting ESG and/or GHG metrics.

Defining ESG and GHG metrics

Admin users can have the flexibility to choose which metrics to track for both ESG and GHG.

We believe this feature would be most helpful for users who are following certain sustainability reporting frameworks and need to track for material topics to disclose.

 For ESG, admin users may select their preferred framework, and then proceed to select the metrics to track for Environmental, Social, and Governance. For GHG, they may select categories that are relevant to their operations based on the 20 outlined in the GHG Protocol.

After the admin user selects all the relevant metrics to track, they may proceed to assign data ownership and approval roles across different assets.

Assigning data ownership and approval

The new data approval workflow feature introduces two new user roles to the platform: data owner and data approver.

Data owners are users who are responsible for inputting GHG or ESG data on a regular basis. Data owners will only be able to input data that are assigned to them, eliminating confusion on which metrics or GHG categories they need to look at.

Data approvers are users who can accept or reject data inputs. When a data point is approved, they are recorded within the platform. When a data point is rejected, a reminder is sent to the data owner to input the correct data.

In cases where data approval is not needed, the data owner also acts as the approver and all data they upload will automatically be accepted.

The division of roles helps all users to be accountable for data hygiene –including how often data needs to be input into the platform.
