VELMA – the first IT platform that will help you report ESG and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the range 1,2,3 to your company’s report in the sector

Why do you need to prepare ESG report using VELMA?

  • YOU WILL MEET EU REGULATIONS

    Since March 2021 years in Poland and other EU countries will apply EU Regulation 2019/2088 SFDR disclosure of sustainability (environmental, labor, human rights and anti-corruption) in the financial services sector

  • favorable FINANCING

    ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) reporting contains the data they are looking for, e.g. banks and financing entities. Thanks to them, banks can assess whether your company operates in accordance with the principles of sustainable development and whether it is profitable to provide financing for your company.

  • credibility

    Currently, listed companies will for the fourth time compulsorily publish ESG data in their non-financial reports, but soon medium-sized and smaller entities will also have to pay more attention to this aspect. Otherwise, they risk having a difficult access to capital and a decrease in the attractiveness of your company in the eyes of customers.

  • DISCLOSURE OF THE CLIMATE IMPACT

    GHG emissions calculations are actually intended to indicate the impact on the climate and energy use, so that it can be measured and presented to your stakeholders (investors, regulators, supervisors, customers, society, competition)

What is new in the companies’ report?

  • GHG EMISSION REPORTING

    In November 2018, a report of the European Parliament was published proposing changes to the draft regulation on sustainable investments. The document contains, inter alia, proposals for companies to report the so-called GHG scope 1, 2, 3 emissions.

  • OBLIGATIONS TO THE COMPANY’S REPORT

    The directive imposes, inter alia, obligation to prepare a report on operations or a consolidated report on operations by capital companies, limited joint-stock partnerships, mutual insurance companies, mutual reinsurance companies, cooperatives and state-owned enterprises, which supplement the financial statements.

  • regulations

    The report of the European Parliament 2013/34 / EU proposes to add the subject of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions to the previously adopted scope of information to be included in the activity report in the form of presentation of emissions in the ranges 1, 2, 3 and the results of the implemented activities in relation to the European Union’s climate goals

How to calculate and present information on GHG emissions in the report?

The carbon footprint is calculated in three ranges depending on the purpose of the company’s carbon footprint calculation. It was the calculations in these scopes (scope 1, 2, 3) that were proposed for mandatory reporting in activity reports.

Scope 1

Direct emissions resulting from combustion of fuels in stationary or mobile sources owned or controlled by the company (also emissions from technological processes).

Scope 2

Indirect energy emissions resulting from the consumption of imported (purchased or supplied from outside) electricity, heat, process steam, and cold.

Scope 3

Other emissions, generated along the entire value chain, e.g. as a result of the production of raw materials, waste management, product transport, business trips, use of products.

VELMA platform supporting GHG calculations and ESG reporting

Currently, the VELMA platform enables the calculation of the carbon footprint. We are based on the ISO 14064-1 Greenhouse Gases – Part 1: Specification and guidelines for quantifying and reporting greenhouse gas emissions and removals at the organization level and on The GHG Protocol A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard, and we also use the GRI Global Reporting Initiative (GRI ), which is the international benchmark for corporate responsibility and sustainable development reporting. Soon the next stages will be put into use by companies!

STEP 1 - GHG emissions and carbon footprint report
STEP 2 - KPI calculations for the environment (E)
STEP 3 - Calculating Social KPIs (S)
STEP 4 - calculating the KPIs of corporate governance (G)
STEP 5 - Ready ESG report
