Avoid duplication in your ESG reporting

Gathering evidence for the E, S and G areas of an ESG report is a lot of work. Although many companies already have a lot of useful data, it is a challenge to match the available data with your metrics that feed into an ESG report. ESG reporting.

Den opgave har Rådet for Bæredygtigt Byggeri hjulpet på vej ved at lave en ESG-guide og et tilhørende Excel-ark, der gør det let at identificere hvilke af de datapunkter, som mange allerede har fra DGNB- eller taksonomi-arbejde, der kan trækkes med over i en ESG-rapport.

By utilising data from DGNB certification and Taxonomy verification, you have already ensured that your documentation is based on official measurement standards and has been approved by independent experts.

The ESG tool provides an overview of the correlation between different metrics within E, S, and G and your data from DGNB certification and/or EU taxonomy verification.

According to the Council for Sustainable Construction, the ESG tool will be updated with new data points as EU and DGNB requirements evolve.

The current version of the ESG Excel tool is based on the following three sources:

- DGNB 'New buildings and major renovations' - version 2023
- DGNB 'Buildings in operation' - version 2023
- EU taxonomy (7.1, 7.2 and 7.7)

and compared with these three ESG factors:

- Generic ESG categories
- The EU taxonomy's environmental goals
- The main categories in ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards)
