Native Energy is ranked very high among leading offset providers. They are the most specialized, offering custom-tailored carbon projects designed specifically to suit your business. While this is a great option for some, they offer little in the area of preexisting projects for those wanting to make simple investments in high-impact carbon offsets.

ESG Apps

ESG & sustainability management platforms

diginexESG platform helps companies simplify and streamline reporting processes through collaborative materiality tracking and assessment that is secured with blockchain technology. The app is ISO Certified and enables users to select and customize their reporting framework (they are also an official partner of GRI, SASB, WEF, and signatory of PRI). The downside is that if you want to track and report emissions, you have to purchase their add-on app, diginexClimate. On the plus side, they offer another add-on app, diginexLumen, for managing supply chain risk.

enVizi by IBM goes a step beyond diginex reporting capabilities, offering an ESG data management system that makes it possible for companies to report across nearly all frameworks, including GRI, SASB, CDP, GRESB, SFDR, TCFD, NGER, SECR and SDG, using one repository of information. It is customizable, allowing organizations to link answers to similar questions across different ESG frameworks, or even add company-specific questions.

Quentic provides a diverse integrated platform for managing EHSQ & ESG in one place. Organizations can streamline managing health and safety, risks and audits, legal compliance, environmental impact, sustainability tracking and reporting, and more. You can even set standards to get ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and ISO 45001 certified. The only drawback is that their standardized reporting indicators are in accordance with the GRI framework, so organizations that need to report across multiple frameworks will need to customize additional indicators.

Benchmark ESG Suites provide the most robust solutions for managing risk, sustainability, stewardship, and ESG reporting. While these are offered as separate platforms that can be integrated, the Benchmark Sustainability suite alone allows companies to manage targets and projects, track their footprint, gain insights and collaborate using an array of tools and dashboards, and gather verifiable "investment-grade" data for reporting and analysis.
