Measuring climate impact is the first step for companies to reduce their carbon footprint. However, only a small fraction of companies actually measure their impact, and often only include emissions that are easy to track, such as electricity and car fuel consumption. These emissions make up less than 10% of a company’s total emissions. The remaining emissions remain unaccounted for.
Normative has developed a digital solution that simplifies sustainability accounting, and makes it accessible to companies of all sizes. The software calculates companies’ emissions based on their financial transactions data. The solution offers guidance through the sustainability accounting process with visual analytics tools that provide deep insight into the business’ environmental impact. Leveraging this internal knowledge gathering empowers companies to pave the way for more sustainable practices.
