Tooling to master ESG reporting and data challenges

Many sectors are feeling the pressure of increasing ESG data management demands — and financial services especially. The challenges are many and varied: Lack of clarity on ESG data, ESG reporting frameworks that aren’t yet optimized, and obstacles to sharing ESG data are just a few.

Ultimately, the objective of your ESG data management is to offer the best reporting and insights you can. To regulators, customers, and supply chain partners alike. Here, we take a look at how smart, effective tooling can support these efforts.


Enable continuous ESG data management

Ideally, your ESG reporting frameworks will enable constant, consistent data collection and analytics. From upstream and downstream around your financial services organization, across business units and hierarchies.

With a reliable reporting engine, you can gather a full ESG picture for your organization. With ServiceNow, this structured ESG data collection is made easier: You can validate and display quantitative and qualitative data from multiple sources. You can also monitor performance with ease, ensuring regular progress tracking against ESG objectives across your enterprise.


Standardize ESG reporting frameworks for usable outcomes

For useful output, your ESG data-gathering will need to adhere to agreed-upon definitions. These can be internal to your business, across metrics and global locations, and aligned with your organization’s ESG strategy. They’ll also need to align with applicable external standards.

With ServiceNow’s automated disclosure feature, you’ll stay informed organization-wide with streamlined reporting against standards and regulations such as SASB, TCFD, and CSRD.


Ensure ESG data and analytics are recent, relevant, correct, and complete

By streamlining data collection with ServiceNow, you can automatically collect and verify data to ensure disclosure reliability and readiness. Likewise, it will provide a single source of truth for your finance organization’s ESG and sustainability topics, goals, and numbers.
