What are the ESG criteria specific to the retail sector?
- ESG criteria
- Energy and environmental data collection
- Reduction of energy consumption
- Costs reduction
- Extra-financial report
ESG criteria are a key element of your Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) strategy, and represent a major challenge because they include a truly responsible dimension:
Environmental criteria: management of energy consumption of all points of sale, waste and pollution management, reduction of carbon footprint.
Social criteria: working conditions for employees, meeting the expectations of consumers and investors, optimizing the supply chain.
Governance criteria: organizational structure of the company (independence of the board of directors, presence of an audit committee), tax strategy and level of compensation.
Good to know: SRI strategy is not limited to financial investment, as it is based on sustainable development and social issues. In fact, it takes the form of social and environmental criteria specific to the ESG strategy, as well as ethical investments (exclusion funds).
For your SRI strategy and the management of your ESG criteria, Energisme intervenes at several levels: the collection of energy data, the reduction of energy consumption, the reduction of charges as well as the simplification and harmonization of your CSR reporting.
You have data that, when properly interpreted, can provide crucial information about the environmental and financial impact of each of your stores.
To guide your SRI and sustainability strategy, data collection coupled with artificial intelligence (AI) plays a central role in your ESG policy.
Moreover, the right interpretation of your data allows you to accelerate your decision making.
To do so, Energisme transforms massive, heterogeneous, continuous and real-time data into key indicators and continuously analyzes them.
The software integrates numerous modules to respond precisely to the major axes of your sustainable development strategy.
Real-time access to your multi-fluid data (water, electricity, gas) allows our software platform to identify not only your energy consumption, but also to make immediate financial gains.
The automatic analysis of your energy data shows your actual consumption, but not only that: it compares your different contracts.
You can clearly see the energy drifts on each point of sale and identify the optimal power of your subscribed powers.
In addition, the platform allows you to manage your bills intelligently by intervening at two levels :
- checking the consistency of invoices according to your consumption periods
- automatic recalculation of all invoices issued according to your supplier contracts
To measure the performance of your ESG criteria, Energisme makes it easy to publish your results.
Environmental data related to your CSR indicators can be exported in the format of your choice. You get a simplified reporting in a few clicks that meets the standards of extra-financial reporting.
You communicate a truly representative analysis of the existing situation based on compliant data.
In addition, you have a clear document on your environmental and social impact to justify the financial performance of your organization.
