Streamlining the collection of water usage for CDP reporting
Office & Co. is a ~$750M global workspace provider headquartered in Switzerland.
The company faced a critical challenge as they prepared for CDP reporting. They needed comprehensive data on water consumption from their 3000+ offices, and the complexity was compounded by the diversity of languages used in their water invoices.
Over a 30-day project, ESG Flo:
Identified the most impactful locations for data collection, optimizing process efficiency
Automated the extraction of water consumption, cost, and time data from utility bills in over 30 languages
Organized the extracted data by country, simplifying the reporting process
Provided accurate and reliable data ready for CDP reporting
“This is a one-stop-shop for us. We don’t have to go to multiple data owners to get information. The tool does exactly what we need it to."
Automating Scope 1 and 2 reporting, improving communication and audibility
Energy & Co. is a ~$3.4B provider of stored energy solutions based in the USA.
The company faced considerable challenges in collecting Scope 1 and 2 data across 160+ sites. Issues included the absence of a centralized data repository, cumbersome communication with data providers, unreliable and incomplete data, and the absence of an audit trail for ESG assurance.
Over a 90-day collaboration, ESG Flo:
Automated data collection, extracting utility data directly from invoices using OCR technology and connecting existing systems through customized integrations
Centralized and streamlined communication between the sustainability team and data providers
Introduced a system to quickly identify and address data gaps and anomalies
Provided transparent data calculations and a complete audit trail, enabling auditors to conduct reasonable assurance
“The reporting functionality is much more robust than our current solution and builds on data audibility and transparency. I love that it is less clunky and more user-friendly."
