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.
