Central & Intelligent
SR management has become complex: A wide variety of stakeholders ask for information, clients demand participation in specific sustainability reporting, and the recording of company-wide CO2 emissions extends into the supply chains. With the DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform, we put you, the customer, at the centre, because only company-specific CSR management is truly sustainable and can lead to carbon neutrality of products or the company.
“We see the future of sustainability management not in participating in isolated CSR reportings, but in a dynamic orchestration of all sustainability efforts that identifies opportunities for optimisation as well as risks early on and includes your company’s entire supply chain.”
The DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform acts as a central and intelligent hub for:
- the life-cycle management of sustainability, where it lets you manage important data for acquisition and submission.
- centralise and store all relevant data in a secure environment.
- the calculations of Product and/or Corporate Carbon Footprints, which are increasingly based on SBTs and become dynamic through partial automation.
- agile analysis and management of CSR activities and their impact on company-wide CO2 emissions.
- the integration of your supply chains on your DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform.
Secure and centralized information and data management forms the basis of the DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform.
For the communication of your climate neutrality, for example, we have developed a separate module in which all relevant information can be tracked by means of uniquely assigned tracking IDs. A separate end customer page ensures transparent and comprehensive information for your stakeholders.
Dashboard & Apps
DFGE dashboards and apps offer numerous options for holistic management of your corporate social responsibility.
Dashboards customized to your company simplify the monitoring of your sustainability efforts and the integration of your supply chain. Customized software solutions support you, for example, in determining the product carbon footprint, from material selection to life cycle analysis (LCA) to the final calculation of the carbon footprint.
AI & Third Party Data
Valid sustainability management has always been data driven.
The use of artificial intelligence, the pre-selection of relevant emission factors and the use of your specific company data as well as the integration of validated external data, such as that of your suppliers, makes the DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform particularly accurate and efficient. A reliable database prevents green-washing and also stands up to external audits.
The definition of suitable and valid methods is the indispensable basis for any form of calculation, reporting and management. DFGE supports you every step of the way to CSR management and reporting. We select the appropriate methodological approaches and metrics for you and develop a specific and robust model. Depending on your requirements, specific key figures and emission factors are also created. In addition, we support you on your way to Climate Neutrality with a customized Climate Action Plan.
We help you select and participate in various reporting and disclosure standards. With over two decades of experience in life cycle assessments, sustainability calculations and CSR, we know the methods of the standards very well as an official CDP as well as certified EcoVadis partner. In the field of CSR reporting, we are a GRI Community Member and partner of the German Global Compact Network. With our Sustainability Intelligence concept, we help you to implement the dynamic requirements in a methodical and resilient manner, even in the long term.
Software & Interfaces
Security and scalability are essential for holistic, IT-based CSR management. The DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform uses Amazon Web Services (AWS). The use of standardized and validated methods is our company credo not only for the calculation of carbon footprints or SBTs, but also when it comes to building an IT infrastructure for your CSR management. The goal is always the greatest possible integration – even into existing systems.
As the only CDP partner of Science-based Targets in the DACH region, we offer you a holistic approach to Climate Strategy. To avoid Green-Washing, the projects carried out with DFGE can be transparently tracked on our platform.
From material selection over Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) to the final calculation of the Carbon Footprint. The DFGE tool takes care of the selection of the right emission factors and can be integrated into a customer-oriented Climate Strategy with a focus on the company-specific goals.
In the DFGE CSR Dashboard, you can always see the current status of your company on the path to a Sustainable Economy or Climate Neutrality. The File Manager additionally optimises the timely exchange of data between your organisation and DFGE and accelerates processes on both sides.
