Ecometrica: The Ecometrica Platform | Ecometrica
This platform, while competitive with other SaaS models, offers enhanced benefits related to use of geospatial data and built-in compliance assurance by recognized independent auditors. As an end-to-end environmental accounting and sustainability management solution, this tool may set the standard for sustainability data management.
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 all customers 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 company experienced 100% year-on-year growth in 2015.
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.
A multinational alcoholic beverages company used the Ecometrica Platform’s mapping modules to assess the vulnerability of barley in its supply chain. That project allowed the company to create a 20-year plan so they can re-position, grow, and harvest barley in the region despite the meteorological changes that are likely to occur during that time.
