ESG Management Support Service that Promote Sustainable Management

ESG Management Support Service is a cloud service that provides templates for disclosure items needed by each industry by ESG item as well as functions for data collection, visualization, and analysis, with the aim of facilitating effective and efficient analysis and disclosure of various forms of ESG data relating to CO2 reductions, health and safety, and risks of fraud.

Features of ESG Management Support Service

1. Introducing ESG Management Support Service at the department and project level to support small starts toward sustainable management

ESG Management Support Service, which allows for ESG data collection and visualization for sustainable management, will be quickly and inexpensively implemented and provided as a contract-based cloud service on the department and project level. Moreover, coordination among departments is made easy by the account integration function. As such, it is possible to work stepwise by starting with a single project, for example "Wanting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the plants," without the need for large-scale building and introduction across the whole company.

2. Easy input and management supports efficient collection of enormous and diverse ESG data

By providing input and management tools for ESG data that utilize existing arrangements, such as emails and Excel, data collection is optimized in a way that is user-friendly. Via the system, you can do everything from defining (creating) information you want to collect to sending request emails in bulk, inputting and returning mandatory items at the collection point, and effortlessly collect and manage data. Files collected from various departments are automatically entered into the database, after which they are tallied and centrally managed by project, thus allowing you to utilize the data collected.

Depending on the collection status, the automatic error function can visualize defects in the response data and the reminder function can send automatic notifications to participants who have not yet responded at regular intervals. In addition, by linking with organizational information, it becomes possible to quickly respond to organizational changes and personnel transfers as well.

3. More sophisticated sustainable management through visualization and analysis of ESG data

Data collected are visualized by department, years, and measures by utilizing a BI tool. For example, if you select items needed for sustainable management, such as CO2 reduction, health and safety, and intellectual property, you can display a list of the current status and change over the years or get an overview of qualitative information (text data), including factors for increases or decreases in various values. Moreover, you can define target values in advance to be compared with actual results, which allows you to probe ESG measures and understand their progress, opening up for discussions about management decisions and additional measures.
