Case Study: Sage


Sage was one of the early leaders to venture into sustainability reporting in 2006. This leadership involved an ambitious plan to measure, report and reduce the Sage corporate carbon footprint. Given the size and complexity of Sage’s operations, Sage adopted an online carbon and sustainability reporting software solution to accomplish this goal. In 2013, Sage decided that a more sophisticated solution which allowed for a wider scope of coverage and capabilities was required for Sage’s future reporting requirements.

Following a competitive procurement process of the leading carbon, energy and sustainability software solutions on the market, Sage ultimately selected Diligent ESG. Diligent ESG helped Sage create a robust reporting process to meet complex and evolving sustainability-related regulations. The process involved migrating over 1,200,000 data points and setting up targets for site specific, divisional and group level entities.

Centralised sustainability and energy reporting enabled Sage to realise increased efficiencies across operations and Diligent ESG’s powerful analytics provided the organization with never-before insights to accelerate progress towards their sustainability goals.
