Product Spotlight: Sustainability Reporting Integrations
Streamline, automate, and standardize your sustainability reporting process with WatchWire’s direct integration with leading reporting frameworks like ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, LEED Arc, GRESB, and more.
WatchWire’s Sustainability Reporting Integration features within the Sustainability Module are designed to provide an effortless and efficient approach to sustainability reporting. By integrating directly with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, LEED Arc, GRESB, and others, WatchWire eases the process of tracking, analyzing, and reporting your organization’s sustainability data. WatchWire has the ability to connect with any API so you can ensure your portfolio meets any additional mandatory reporting requirements and also allow you to participate in any voluntary reporting to any benchmarking service in the market like CDP, GRI, SASB, and more.
From mature sustainability veterans and progressive thought leaders, to companies just starting out on their sustainability journey, WatchWire has the tools to help. The integrated energy and sustainability functionality of WatchWire coupled with our automatic ingestion of utility invoices and emissions data will allow you to provide more accurate and comprehensive data to relevant reporting frameworks.
How it works
ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager Integration:
With a robust integration with ESPM, WatchWire offers a user-friendly interface to configure properties for syncing with ESPM. The integration allows for seamless syncing with ENERGY STAR by entering Portfolio ID and Meter ID. You can easily navigate the Sustainability hierarchy to view ENERGY STAR data and results including ESPM property IDs, ESPM scores, and alerts. From the Home section, you can set up an ENERGY STAR dashboard widget where you can select different properties to quickly view high-level ESPM data and scores. After navigating to the Reporting section, you are able to select and run an ENERGY STAR Report with the properties you want to be included. You can download and save the report in various formats. WatchWire’s ESPM integration also pulls down and trends score and EUI metrics over time and can extract usage data stored in ESPM into the platform.
LEED Arc Integration:
WatchWire offers native integration with LEED Arc, a platform used for continuous LEED scoring, LEED readiness, and more. To use this feature, users must first connect to Arc Skoru and then follow the steps to authorize.
As a GRESB Premier Partner, WatchWire is proficient in helping real estate clients maximize their GRESB scoring, and in accurately and quickly reporting their energy performance indicators. A direct API connection to the GRESB portal facilitates audited data transfer directly from WatchWire, allowing automatic updates of performance data each year without having to spend time and resources collecting the data, manually updating the data, or uploading spreadsheets to the reporting site.
Other Integrations: GRI, CDP, SASB, and more
We also offer Excel exports for a wide range of GRI disclosures, user-defined SASB industry metrics ( within the Environment Dimension and the following General Issue Categories – GHG Emissions, Energy Management, Water & Wastewater Management, Waste & Hazardous Materials Management), and quantitative data for multiple sections of the CDP.
Sustainability Managers and Analysts, Energy Managers, Procurement teams, and C-suite level executives will find the Sustainability Integrations feature particularly useful. It ensures proper sustainability benchmarks are established and maintained using ESG measures, standards, and methodologies. This feature is also vital for organizations aiming to improve their sustainability reporting, adhere to regulatory mandates, or strive for higher sustainability ratings.
Because WatchWire automatically captures and audits comprehensive utility and emissions data, the platform is known for high data accuracy and data coverage. This, combined with the clear visuals and data integration capability will be crucial going forward when companies are asked to provide audit-ready data to disclosure schemas to combat greenwashing accusations.
WatchWire’s Sustainability Integrations feature is critical for organizations looking to improve their sustainability metrics and meet compliance standards. By integrating with major sustainability reporting frameworks, WatchWire makes it easier than ever to manage, track, and report on your organization’s sustainability performance, reducing data silos within the teams of your organization and across multiple data tracking platforms. This feature is especially important for organizations that want to improve their transparency, meet investor expectations, and work towards their sustainability goals with data-driven insights.
With WatchWire integrations you can automatically benchmark your data to comply with local laws. Whether or not your city/state requires ENERGY STAR benchmarking with your data, your property/portfolio can still benefit from voluntarily reporting to Portfolio Manager
