Where it all begins: Uncover your carbon & ESG data

Collecting emissions data is a real challenge for companies. The data collection phase is defined by sourcing data required for carbon accounting and ESG reporting, which means coordinating data from various departments and stakeholders.

This can include everything from employee commute information, building electricity use, and weight of waste produced in your business’ office.  Many people find this task to be ambiguous and difficult as many sources of data need to be configured and collating accurate information can be quite tedious.

Data limitations

Difficulty in ensuring quality, accuracy, and consistency of emissions data - leading to the use of national averages.

Data perfection

The assumption that climate data needs to be perfect to realise a first carbon assessment is making the data collection a cumbersome and time-consuming process.

Retrieving data

Carbon data is often stored in silos across departments, regions, business units and decision-makers, which makes it challenging for companies to find and consolidate the data.

Analogue data

Some data may not even be digitally available yet (e.g. paper contracts for renting an office, paper utility bills).

Lack of team resources

Scope 3 data is likely to require the involvement of several departments like procurement, R&D, manufacturing, and marketing. Creating a team to collate all this information can be challenging.

Retrieving Scope 3 emissions

Scope 3 emissions data is the most challenging to gather since it depends on external stakeholders and suppliers. It’s also the most important scope as it represents 90% of a company’s carbon footprint. Hence, companies need to tackle data collection across their entire value chain to account for scope 3 emissions.
