Diligent Launches Board-Level ESG Reporting Platform
Governance, risk and compliance (GRC) SaaS solutions provider Diligent announced today the launch of Board Reporting for ESG, a new dashboard-based platform aimed at providing a comprehensive view of an organization’s ESG data and posture for reporting to executive management and company directors.
Key features of the new solution include reporting dashboards offering insight into the relationship between company sustainability performance and stakeholder perception, information on progress against carbon targets, peer benchmark disclosures and scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, ESG scores from Clarity AI and S&P Global, benchmarked against industry averages, and best practices and training materials on presenting to the board – including access to Diligent’s certifications, Climate Leadership and ESG Leadership.
According to Diligent’s Managing Director of ESG & Data Intelligence, Amanda Carty, the launch of the new platform is aimed at helping sustainability professionals to address the key challenges of “collecting and organizing an overwhelming amount of climate data,” and “presenting a clear and compelling story to the board.”
“Board Reporting for ESG takes the guesswork out of climate reporting, equipping practitioners with the right information to share and allowing executives and board members to see the whole picture, so they spend less time trying to decipher complex information and more time focused on the right insights and data to drive the organization forward.”
The new solution follows the launch in 2021 by the company of its ESG software solution, Diligent ESG, on its GRC platform, announced alongside the acquisition of ESG data aggregation and reporting software company Accuvio.
