Unify data intelligence

Gain the visibility you need 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

With our streamlined process of collecting and calculating data, you can track and assess the emissions, water usage, and waste impact of your operations and value chain. We offer various methods for importing data, including manual input, file imports, and automated connections to data sources. These different methods help you gather 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 sources for emissions, water, and waste and centralizes environmental data in a common format. The solution helps automate the process of converting raw data into calculated emissions, water, and waste estimates using specialized factors and formulas. It includes prebuilt, dynamic calculation methodologies to estimate emissions scopes 1 and 2, several categories of scope 3, and water withdrawals and discharges to deliver an accurate, near real-time record of your carbon and water footprint. Future plans include adding prebuilt calculation models for the remaining scope 3 categories and waste estimations.
