The management of data with SOFY in different sectors

In this blog post, we will introduce Sofy’s ESG, GRC and Data Management solutions briefly, shedding light on what they bring to clients.


With Sofy’s ESG offering, clients can monitor and report on Environmental, Social and Governance performance, in order to make informed decisions and improve sustainability practices. One of the key functionalities is Sofy’s Carbon Calculator, which provides insights into baseline emissions for both direct and indirect emissions. It allows for scope 1, 2 and 3 data uploads in different formats which will then be converted into tons of CO2 for uniform reporting across the organization. The tool also calculates the potential impact of predefined reduction initiatives to help prioritize actions and achieve emissions targets efficiently.
