GHG Accounting

Utilizing Sustainium, especially in the US, eliminates the complexities associated with currency conversion when you use a spend-based method to account for GHGs for Scope 3 GHG quantification, as transactions and reporting are conducted in the US Dollars.

Sustainium simplifies GHG reporting procedures, reduces administrative burden, and minimizes the likelihood of human errors. By streamlining the GHG reporting process, businesses can allocate resources more efficiently towards other sustainability-driven initiatives.

The decision to adopt a US-based Software tool as your GHG tool is strategic especially for organizations in the US, as it is tailored to the specific requirements and objectives of your organization and its businesses locally.

For US-based companies, opting for a domestically developed solution offers numerous advantages, ranging from regulatory compliance and data security to enhanced support and alignment with local business practices. By using Sustainium as your go-to GHG accounting, reporting, performance measurement and management tool, businesses can effectively measure and manage their environmental impact while contributing to national sustainability goals.
