It was time again for another of Convene’s ESG Webinars earlier today, if you missed out you can watch the recording here.
This time we delved into the pain points of the SRS Reporting Process and how Convene ESG has been able to relieve some of these issues. We were joined by our consultant Arturo Dell and would like to thank Russell Smith from Orbit Housing for helping us to demonstrate a use-case for Convene ESG.
First and foremost, ownership, where does your data come from and who is responsible for it? With any Reporting Processes, the first step is to determine whose department will produce the report. With financial reports, your CFO is the easy choice but if you don’t have the capacity to create an ESG Department it can be tricky. ESG is such a broad reaching topic, especially in Housing Associations. Convene ESG can streamline this process to make it as collaborative as possible. Our features ensure that everyone is sent their required sections and only one person needs to oversee the collation of all this data. There are even automatic reminders and any data can easily be updated with just a click of a button. This means there is no need for several versions of the same spreadsheet!
Another issue we discussed was peer reviewing. It is important to be able to compare metrics, with yourself and with your peers. Convene ESG allows you to do this simply by selecting any organisation which publishes reports and the software will automatically compare metrics. Convene ESG will also automatically update your requirements with any regulation changes, so you don’t have to manually alter anything!
