The Envizi Sustainability Reporting Manager tool covers many ESG Frameworks. While Envizi seeks to cover the most popular frameworks with the broadest coverage, there may be some frameworks that are not covered. In some cases Envizi has created other tools and reports to meet the framework requirements, as we currently do for GRESB and CDP.
All available frameworks can be enabled by request, but Envizi seeks to provide a streamlined experience so only those frameworks that are needed by the organization are enabled.
For an overview of ESG Framework landscape more generally, see here.

Ipieca is a global not-for-profit oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, headquartered in London. The association was established in 1974 as the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association and changed its name in 2002. Member companies of Ipieca, the global oil and gas industry association for advancing environmental and social issues, the American Petroleum Institute (API), and the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) have been collaborating on this important Guidance since 2005.
Company members contribute to Ipieca's budget according to an individually agreed percentage based on the volume of crude oil produced and petroleum products sold by each company and the number of geographical areas where the company has interests.
Ipieca is the industry channel into UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the UNFCCC, both concerned with climate change.

SASB Standards help companies disclose relevant sustainability information to their investors. Available for 77 industries, the SASB Standards identify the sustainability-related risks and opportunities most likely to affect an entity’s cash flows, access to finance and cost of capital over the short, medium or long term and the disclosure topics and metrics that are most likely to be useful to investors.
As of August 2022, the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) of the IFRS Foundation assumed responsibility for the SASB Standards. The ISSB has committed to maintain, enhance and evolve the SASB Standards and encourages preparers and investors to continue to use the SASB Standards.
Envizi licenses and uses the SASB Materiality Map® Disclosure Topics, Accounting Metrics, and Technical Protocols in our work.
The SASB standards are organized into 11 sectors, which are sub categorized into 77 industries. To identify the industry (or industries) your organization may wish to report against, visit the SASB website and use the Materiality Finder.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

TCFD’s Goal: Given its remit from the Financial Stability Board, the TCFD is committed to market transparency. In our view, the success of the TCFD recommendations depends on widespread adoption by companies in the financial and non-financial sectors.
Through widespread adoption, financial risks and opportunities related to climate change will become a natural part of companies’ risk management and strategic planning processes. As this occurs, companies’ and investors’ understanding of the potential financial implications associated with transitioning to a lower-carbon economy and climate-related physical risks will grow; information will become more decision-useful; and risks and opportunities will be more accurately priced, allowing for the more efficient allocation of capital.

The recommendations of the TNFD have been designed to meet the corporate reporting requirements of organisations across jurisdictions, to be consistent with the global baseline for corporate sustainability reporting and to be aligned with the global policy goals in the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. The TNFD disclosure framework consists of conceptual foundations for nature-related disclosures, a set of general requirements, a set of recommended disclosures structured around the four recommendation pillars of governance, strategy, risk and impact management, and metrics and targets. This is consistent with the approach of the TCFD and the ISSB’s IFRS Standards.

Corporate sustainability starts with a company’s value system and a principles-based approach to doing business. This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Responsible businesses enact the same values and principles wherever they have a presence, and know that good practices in one area do not offset harm in another. By incorporating the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
The United Nations Global Compact does not sponsor, endorse, review or otherwise express any opinion regarding IBM's products and/or services.
