What is a SaaS product for CSR, Sustainability and ESG?
Applicants must demonstrate either an approach to SaaS that incorporates innovation relating to CSR, sustainability or governance, innovation within those sectors, or within the charity sector itself.
A SaaS product for CSR, sustainability, and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is a cloud-based software solution that helps companies manage their corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, sustainability goals, and ESG reporting.
This type of product typically includes features such as:
- Carbon footprint tracking: allowing companies to measure and monitor their carbon emissions, as well as set targets and track progress towards reducing their carbon footprint.
- ESG reporting: enabling companies to report on their environmental, social, and governance performance, in accordance with standards such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) or the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).
- Supply chain monitoring: allowing companies to monitor their suppliers’ sustainability and ESG performance, and identify potential risks and areas for improvement.
- Stakeholder engagement: enabling companies to engage with their stakeholders (e.g. customers, employees, investors) on sustainability and CSR issues, and gather feedback to inform their strategies.
- Sustainability goal setting and tracking: helping companies set targets and track progress towards achieving their sustainability goals, such as reducing waste or increasing renewable energy usage.
Overall, a SaaS product for CSR, sustainability, and ESG can help companies improve their sustainability performance, enhance their reputation, and meet the growing expectations of stakeholders for transparent and responsible business practices.
