Nordic Capital – Data driven sustainability reporting

Data driven sustainability reporting

With the purpose of gaining continuous overview of the sustainability work carried out by their portfolio companies’, Nordic Capital needed a coherent format and clear process for their sustainability reporting. With higher demands placed by investors on non-financial data to reach the same level of quality as financial data, Excel proved to be insufficient. Furthermore, Nordic Capital’s broad portfolio of holdings in various segments and sizes posed an inherent challenge that made it difficult to obtain comparable data that was also relevant and usable for each company’s own business and performance follow-up. Nordic Capital needed a data driven process for follow-up and reporting of their portfolio companies’ sustainability work.

A platform for continuous follow-up and overview

Nordic Capital chose Position Green as their platform in order to obtain relevant data for their sustainability reporting, for continuous follow-up of their portfolio companies’ sustainability work and as a reliable source of information for both investors and the board of directors of each company. The digital reporting includes questions that validate both processes and governance, which allows Nordic Capital to track their portfolio companies’ progress on defined topics, despite their variations in size and industry. By giving each company the opportunity to download their response in a report format, Nordic Capital equips them with high-quality material from which to develop their own sustainability communication while also working actively throughout the year with the sustainability data reported and visualized in Position Green.

A clear sustainability agenda creates business value

Nordic Capital uses the collected data proactively as a basis for ongoing governance in each company’s board work and as a continuous source of information for their investors. From their dashboard in Position Green, Nordic Capital receives a snapshot on their companies progress against Nordic Capital’s KPI’s as an active owner,, as well as how they perform against various sustainability standards and investor demands. Nordic Capital can also identify improvement areas and measures that need to be realized. A back-end scoring index rates the companies’ sustainability work and helps to identify both risks and opportunities. Each company’s board of directors receives targeted recommendations based on the analyzed data that focus on pushing their business agendas forward from a sustainability perspective. In their dashboard, Nordic Capital also has access to all data visualized in graphs, diagrams and tables, allowing them to quickly notice trends and progress made over time on a company and portfolio level. With the assistance of Position Green, Nordic Capital is able to meet the increasing requirements placed by external stakeholders on reliable sustainability data while employing it efficiently to create business value for each of their company holdings.
