Sustainability Reporting and Compliance with Microsoft's Sustainability Manager

2 min read Apr 04, 2023

Sustainability reporting is becoming increasingly critical for companies worldwide as stakeholders demand greater transparency and accountability on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. In December 2019, the EU adopted the European Green Deal, which aims to make the EU climate-neutral by 2050.

Where are you in this story?

With the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) as the primary directives, sustainability reporting will become mandatory for the bigger companies.

What does this mean for you?

To comply with the CSRD and ESRS, companies must establish appropriate data management systems to collect, analyze, and report sustainability data accurately.
The data management strategy should include:
  • defining objectives,
  • data collection,
  • protection,
  • analysis,
  • collaboration,
  • control, and
  • expertise.
Data preparation and management are critical to ensuring the accuracy and reliability of sustainability data.

How can you prepare?

Microsoft offers an extensible solution called Microsoft Sustainability Manager that provides organizations with a comprehensive view into the emissions impact of their operations and value chain.

The solution:
  • unifies data intelligence,
  • simplifies complex calculations,
  • breaks down data silos, and
  • provides continuous visibility into emissions activities.

It initially focuses on carbon emissions, with plans to support water and waste tracking in the future.

To summarize, Microsoft's solution empowers organizations to centralize data, streamline reporting, generate insights, and drive actions that reduce environmental impact.
