Data can be a powerful motivator. The story of your ESG data should gradually mature into a grand narrative. Win hearts to win minds. Enrich your business processes and, in time, change behaviour.
Unfortunately, Scope 3 ESG data tends to be sparse and inconsistent. Quantitative and qualitative data can be manipulated (greenwashing). We allow quantitative data to be reduced to random KPIs, or contradictory ratings scores. We condone it when the expedient sanitise our qualitative data (marketing campaigns, community projects, CSR reports, press releases). Catchy anecdotes may entertain everyone, but ultimately convince no one.
If you have gotten this far, you may be seriously considering reporting Scope 3 emissions across all categories for electronics. Well done. Your commitment to building a sustainable supply chain is solid. Now, let's co-create a strategy to collect and prioritize your supply chain data. Relevant data sources include your internal data, data from your supply chain and external data sources (as references).
STEPS FOR THE DATA PORTION OF YOUR ENGAGEMENT
a.) Tell us which fund(s) you participate in. If you are not publicly traded, apply this step for your largest customer(s).
b.) We summarize the nature of the fund(s). Examples include Integration Funds, “ESG-Focused” Funds, open-end funds and closed-end funds. You can find details about the fund's ESG strategy in the prospectus.
c.) We work with you to ensure your ESG strategy aligns with the ESG strategies for all the funds of which you belong.
d.) We identify ESG factors.
e.) We identify the sources of GHG emissions data you will use.
f.) We are ready to create your data report. Your data report will be integrated with your process maps to create a preliminary report.
