Unify data intelligence

Gain the visibility required to effectively drive sustainability reporting, sustainability efforts, and business transformation with Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability.

Organizations across industries and around the world are under increasing pressure from stakeholders, regulators, and customers to report and manage the environmental impact of their business. But to build a successful sustainability strategy, you first need to establish a true baseline—understanding holistically the environmental footprint of your organization and value chain across Scopes 1, 2, and 3.

Data integration and calculation

At Microsoft, we're streamlining the process of data collection and calculation, so you can continuously measure and monitor emissions generated through your operations and value chain. Through a blend of data ingestion methods—from manual input or file imports to automated, direct connections to data sources—you can collect data from any business system, enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, or platform. Our Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability data model breaks down data silos across your emissions sources and centralizes emissions data in a common format. And the solution helps automate the process of converting raw data into calculated emissions using specialized factors and formulas. It includes prebuilt, dynamic calculation methodologies for emissions Scopes 1 and 2 plus several categories of Scope 3 to deliver an accurate, near-real-time record of your carbon footprint. Prebuilt calculation models will be added for the remaining Scope 3 categories over time.
