The Ecometrica Platform
What the Judges Said…
“Being audit-ready provides a large value to the customer in terms of the time and money required to prepare for external verification activities. Being a CDP software partner provides another valuable service. Ecometrica’s system is world-class.”
The Ecometrica Platform is end-to-end sustainability management software that allows businesses, governments, and organizations to make smarter decisions and build long-term value. The platform combines sustainability, environment, risk, and business management with geospatial intelligence and mapping applications. When paired with Ecometrica’s expert analyst support, companies can measure their level of environmental impact, and take appropriate steps to mitigate risks and pursue opportunities.
The company uses business intelligence and satellite data to help customers reach their goals of reducing carbon emissions and impacts on natural capital assets like forests and water, tracking supply chain activity, verifying sustainable product sourcing, and reporting to established sustainability frameworks.
Ecometrica has a single software-as-a-service product maintained across their entire customer base so everyone can benefit from the company’s two-weekly development cycle. They also offer full customer support and an experienced analyst team that can answer queries as well as help with data collection, entry, and interrogation. Ecometrica’s databases contain terabytes of data, and tens of thousands of emission and conversion factors.
The Ecometrica Platform is the only sustainability software with audit-ready assurance from a Big Four auditor (PwC), according to the company. For the largest customers who get their accounts externally audited, this means avoiding costly pre-audit fees that often run into hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
There are more than 10,000 Ecometrica Platform users worldwide. Customers include governments, NGOs, and some of the world’s biggest and most complex multi-national businesses from industries such as mining and energy, financial services, consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, supply chain, healthcare, and food and beverages.
As a CDP Gold Software Partner, the Ecometrica Platform supports disclosures to CDP’s climate change and water programs. As well as maintaining or improving all of their customer scores across the board in 2017, two of Ecometrica’s larger sustainability reporting customers, Compass Group and Ocado, won awards for improving their disclosures in 2017.
A multinational alcoholic beverages company that used the Ecometrica Platform’s mapping modules to assess the vulnerability of barley in its supply chain was able to create a 20-year plan that will allow them to re-position, grow, and harvest barley in the region — despite the meteorological changes that are likely to occur during that time.
