Allianz zur Dekarbonisierung von Unternehmen und Verringerung finanzieller Risiken

New regulations will turn climate risk into financial risk for businesses in the coming months. The Plan A Sustainability Platform offers a secure, data-driven, and scientifically sound (certified by TÜV Rheinland) software solution for advanced data mapping and processing of Scopes 1, 2, and 3 emissions, Science Based Targets-compliant net-zero target setting and decarbonisation planning, as well as framework-proof ESG reporting. These trusted capabilities will enable businesses from Visa’s issuer network to decarbonise their operations and value chains, comply with existing and upcoming ESG regulations, and reduce their strategic risk.

Diese bewährten Funktionalitäten ermöglichen es Unternehmen aus dem Visa-Emittentennetzwerk, ihre Geschäftstätigkeiten und Wertschöpfungsketten zu dekarbonisieren, bestehende und künftige ESG-Vorschriften einzuhalten und ihr strategisches Risiko zu verringern. Aufgrund des hohen Automatisierungsgrades innerhalb der Plattform wird die Nachhaltigkeitsreise hochgradig skalierbar sowie zeit- und kosteneffizient.

The Plan A Sustainability Platform serves as a central sustainability hub enabling businesses to manage the entire end-to-end net-zero journey in one SaaS solution. By automatically mapping all necessary data across Scopes 1, 2, and 3 and merging them with national emission factors and datasets, the software is able to create individual emissions profiles and provide granular carbon and ESG insights in dynamic dashboard overviews. Based on the indicators with the most significant reduction potential, the software empowers companies to set science-based net-zero targets and achieve them through 1,000+ decarbonisation solutions and activities, best practices, as well as a network of service providers and sustainability professionals. At the end of this holistic process, the platform produces regulation-proof ESG reporting.

The Greentech’s internal team of scientists, researchers, and experts in carbon accounting, decarbonisation, sustainability and life cycle analysis, as well as the recently appointed Scientific Advisory Board ensure that all platform-embedded calculations and decarbonisation solutions are fully aligned with internationally recognised scientific methodologies and standards. The scientific accurateness of the applied Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) calculation methodology is certified by TÜV Rheinland, one of the world's leading verification bodies.
