ESG factors in the manufacturing industry


Manufacturers face certain unique challenges in improving ESG performance and tracking, where extensive regulatory scrutiny of working conditions, ethical sourcing and environmental impact is combined with a lack of transparency in the supply chain. Position Green helps streamline data management and build strategies that generate impact.


Integrating sustainability as a value creator

Increasing distributor demands for granular ESG data, together with a wave of corporate sustainability legislation and growing expectations from customers and employees, are pushing ESG concerns to the top of the agenda for manufacturers. From local labour standards and materials sourcing to emissions and natural resource consumption, industry actors need to consolidate all the non-financial data spread across the organization and value chain, while also measuring what matters most to ensure company survival and growth.

  • Collect and analyze reliable data from your organization, factories and suppliers. Monitor KPIs – such as energy, CO2, waste, and health & safety – to identify best practices and areas of improvement.
  • Streamline ESG reporting with ready-made templates and structured data collection in line with industry-relevant regulations and standards, e.g. mandatory ESRS disclosures (working conditions, environment etc.), GHG Protocol, GRI.
  • Easily distribute and share data between supplier and manufacturing to help accelerate efforts to fulfill ESG goals. Effectively communicate sustainability ambitions throughout your organization and supply chain.
  • Train your organization and factory workers with ESG & Sustainability e-learning courses to ensure adequate knowledge and regulatory compliance across regional and cultural boundaries.
  • Develop an impactful strategy based on ESG-related impacts, risks and opportunities, bridge your compliance gaps, and set realistic targets through data-driven insights.
  • Get hands-on guidance with life cycle assessment – from sourcing raw materials to manufacturing, use and disposal – to develop more sustainable products and reduce emissions in the value chain.
