CSM is the link between sustainability management and shareholder value. That means creating value for the company and, at the same time, taking care of the sustainability compliance.
Benefits of the CSM solution
CSM supports other management information systems and secures the performance of the sustainability activities in the company. Reporting and management is similar to the financial management process and will be done monthly or quarterly depending on how to measure the KPI’s.
CSM delivers all the information for reporting in an analytic way. In addition to the annual sustainability reporting there are several other regular or ad hoc reporting needs which can be managed based on the same information.
CSM improves good governance by providing accurate and reliable information for financial and non-financial development to the management. Controlled processes for data collecting and analysis secure better data quality also from the supply chain.
CSM improves strategic risk management by allowing the company to have an overview of its operational performance. Possible differences to norms and targets will be found and corrections can be made before major problems occur.
CSM meets the content and processes according to various standards like GRI, UNGC, ISO 14000/26000 and the GHG-Protocol.
