ESG is an important topic. Customers, suppliers, legal requirements, new solutions, requirements for products. Companies can no longer meet these requirements purely reactively. In order to remain capable of acting, they must give themselves a stable framework with a sustainability strategy that is part of the corporate strategy. Within this framework, they can then react agile to the respective situations without losing sight of their goals. Data and actions must therefore complement each other.

As with any good strategy, progress must be presented in a reporting or controlling system and steering impulses must be set. Due to the nature of the measures, it is no longer possible to access purely commercial information; the new targets have a new, complementary character in terms of their data structure and data sources. This ranges from technical information such as energy data for individual machine areas to information on raw material data such as quantities, compositions and origin, to content-related documentation such as quality audits within the supply chain.

In this situation, it is no longer enough to work through upcoming topics such as the Energy Efficiency Ordinance, CO2 balance or Supply Chain Act in individual projects. What is needed is an integrated, strategic framework that forms the basis for an ESG control and reporting system.

So, is a new project on the scale of an ERP implementation on the horizon? The DataValueThinking network has been working on how to address this pragmatically at a reasonable cost. As a first step, we have developed a whitepaper together with Datenintegrations- und Analyseplattform – bimanu Cloud
