In today’s rapidly evolving sustainability landscape, 84% of organizations are setting sustainability goals, but only 28% are on track to achieve them. From lack of financing to immature technology to aging infrastructure, there are many factors driving this gap to goal. But at ENGIE Impact, we believe the number one driver of this gap is data.
With challenges across data volumes, sources, formats, availability and quality, organizations are struggling to acquire, manage and understand the foundational resource, asset, and supply chain data that’s critical to a successful sustainability program.
On a global scale, these challenges are amplified, creating an even greater need for centralized visibility of audit-level data and assurances that they’re not missing data essential to initiatives like calculating scope 1, 2 or 3 emissions and the success of sustainability programs overall.
From resource consumption data to energy procurement data to emissions data across your supply chain, and from monthly utility bills to waste dumpster dives to IoT-enabled sensors on critical operational assets, Sustainability Data is broad-ranging across scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and can be acquired via a myriad of sources. This data acts as the foundation of a successful sustainability program, supporting activities like engineering-grade scenario modeling, target setting, roadmap creation, and tracking ROI and progress toward goals.
Across verticals, organizations may be missing 10-20% of their scope 1 and 2 emissions because they’re not collecting the data necessary to measure it. Those missing scope 3 emissions is even greater. A multitude of data sources, some without a streamlined way to acquire and track it, create complexity for organizations who are trying to understand and set a baseline, identify opportunities for optimization and measure and report progress.
Creating visibility of factors related to scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions at a single site is complex enough, but imagine doing that effectively across an entire global portfolio with varying site types, each with different kinds of building and operational assets and in locations with varying regulatory requirements on water, waste, and energy. While creating centralized visibility across a global portfolio is complex, it’s a necessary component to any successful sustainability program and drives cross-functional alignment on key priorities.
If collecting the right data is step 1, step 2 is analyzing the data to pinpoint opportunities. Many organizations lack the internal expertise or capacity to review their data on a global scale to understand how to make decisions at a site level to support organizational sustainability goals. Additionally, being able to effectively prioritize opportunities based on projected ROI and impact to goals and building a roadmap to execute is a critical step where many organizations need support.
We help organizations accelerate their sustainability transformation by acquiring the necessary data that will create visibility and give them the information they need to make decisions quickly, the digital tools to manage their data with audit-level assurance, and the advisers that can help them make sense of the data, from making sure they understand what data to capture, to identifying opportunities to optimize their use of resources.
