Software Solutions for Your ESG Reporting Needs

With advanced stakeholder engagement capabilities, a quantitative materiality assessment, data management and tracking tools, and reporting and ESG scoring technology, Ethos Enterprise offers flexible options for a variety of different sustainability reporting requirements.
Understanding the priorities of your stakeholders is vitally important to crafting a Sustainability Plan. Companies need to make sure that they are reporting their ESG performance so that it reflects the interests of their customers, employees, and other valuable stakeholders. Understanding these priorities will make it easier to decide which sustainability issues to tackle first. Additionally, fully understanding the priorities of a company’s stakeholders will better allow it to form its public image and policies regarding changing social and environmental trends.
Conducting a Materiality Assessment is hard work. With the number of impact areas currently recommended for ESG reporting, it can be nearly impossible to determine which are the most pressing issues for a company. Ethos Enterprise offers software solutions to this problem with our quantitative materiality assessment. Take the guesswork out of the process by getting a clear, ranked list of the sustainability reporting areas recommended by your ESG framework of choice, including the U.N. SDGs, CDP, GRI, and SASB.
Data Management and Tracking
Keeping track of a company’s ESG performance is vital to understanding how its impact changes over time. ESG and Sustainability reporting is an inherently data-driven task and requires high-level tools and solutions to manage and track this data. Ethos Enterprise offers easy-to-use data management capabilities. Starting with a baseline, companies can set targets for their performance across hundreds of metrics and track their progress toward reaching their goals.
ESG Performance Scoring and Reporting
With all the different ESG reporting and scoring frameworks in use today, it can be difficult to keep track of what they all mean. Ethos enterprise keeps it straightforward. A company chooses its target performance metrics based on industry best practices, and Ethos Enterprise provides a single score from zero to one hundred showing how close that company is to its sustainability performance goals. This flexible but straightforward scoring system is compatible with many different reporting requirements, making it easier to understand a company’s real-time ESG performance.

Stakeholder Engagement and Materiality Assessment
Conducting a materiality assessment is a vital first step in measuring a company’s ESG performance. Every company on earth has many impacts across Social, Environmental, and Economic spheres. However, trying to measure and manage all of those impacts would be too costly and time-consuming to attempt.
A materiality assessment determines which Social, Environmental, and Economic impact areas are most relevant and pressing to a company and provides clarity in choosing which to focus resources on first.
Stakeholder engagement is an added layer to the Ethos Materiality assessment. This allows for companies to determine which of their material issues are most important to their relevant stakeholders. Conducting stakeholder engagement as part of the materiality assessment builds brand value and trust, ensuring that a company demonstrates its commitment to the issues that matter to its customers, employees, neighbors, and other relevant stakeholders.
Ethos Enterprise comes equipped with a database of hundreds of ESG and Sustainability metrics designed to help a company measure its impact in a clear and consistent way. Ethos’s metrics are designed to represent industry best practices across a variety of sectors, as well as help companies set ambitious but attainable targets for the next decade.
Ethos Enterprise allows its users to provide weights to different metrics, so each company’s sustainability score reflects the values of the company,
Objectives and Key Results
Objectives are the long-term goals a company sets as its vision for the future. They represent where the company wants its sustainability performance to be eight to twelve years in the future. Objectives are ambitions, bold, aspirational goals that should be outlined in detail in any sustainability plan and used extensively in marketing and stakeholder outreach.
The Ethos Enterprise software walks users through the process of creating these objectives for a variety of ESG reporting frameworks, including the U.N. SDGs, CDP, GRI, and SASB.
Key Results are short term stepping stone targets for how a company sees its sustainability performance in two to three years. They are quantitative and specific, usually aligned with individual metrics. This allows for companies to project their sustainability score into the future to anticipate performance at the completion of the plan.
