DNV GL- Business Assurance is now established as the data assurance partner for CEMAsys sustainability reporting online platform customers.
Companies face increasingly complex requests and needs for sustainability performance data. Collecting and managing these data can become extremely time consuming, with risks that data quality and integrity will be compromised at any stage. Without efficient and reliable ways to manage data, insights into performance and trends are difficult to achieve, and valuable opportunities lost. With data quality at risk, the credibility of claims and decisions based on these data are low, and trust in the company diminished. CO2focus are the developers of a cloud-based sustainability reporting platform called CEMAsys, where companies can collect, measure, store and manage all corporate sustainability data in one place.
The platform contains different modules for reporting aspects on carbon footprint, environmental, health/safety, deviation, CSR and Supply Chain. Accredited by the CDP, CEMAsys is trusted by many of the largest Nordic companies. The partnership establishes DNV GL – Business Assurance as the data assurance partner for the CEMAsys online platform customers.
