Frequently Asked Questions
General questions & answers
How does DiginexESG define the list of material topics?
We source the latest available research on materiality across industries from recognised research and standard-setting institutions such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
We make sure that the insights we use are based on comprehensive and rigorous stakeholder consultations that reflect the latest thinking around materiality.
Does DiginexESG support more reporting frameworks other than the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards?
The GRI Standards are the most widely adopted sustainability reporting standards in the world. As the first GRI-accredited, blockchain-enabled corporate sustainability reporting tool, we are proud to have GRI as our first framework partner.
But there’s more!
DiginexESG also supports companies to report against SASB, and the TCFD reporting standards, or in complying with exchange listing requirements such as with the Hong Kong Exchange.
Is there a standard you would like us to incorporate? Or perhaps you want to set up your own standards to lead change within your industry? Please contact Customer Support via live chat or email with your request.
Pssst, your industry peers are already doing so!
What does it mean that DiginexESG is a “GRI certified software”?
Reliable software and tools can make sustainability reporting easier and more manageable.
As a GRI certified sustainability reporting software partner, we are one of few software companies able to license the official GRI standards to help you develop robust and transparent sustainability reporting according to GRI best practice guidelines.
What are the benefits of sustainability reporting?
The active management of a company’s environmental, social and governmental (ESG) goals and impacts is key to future-proofing your business success.
In turn, reporting on your ESG strategy and performance, particularly through best-practice frameworks like GRI or SASB, is essential to meet today’s stakeholder expectations.
It helps you build trust with your customers, attract new employees, appeal to potential investors, and ultimately create a competitive advantage.
Why should I use DiginexESG?
Because we believe you should spend more time improving your sustainability performance than reporting on it.
That’s why we have employed pioneering technology to create a smart yet accessible tool, that facilitates your reporting processes and supports you regardless of your size, industry, or reporting experience.
Can I invite my colleagues to join the platform?
Of course! The more the merrier. In fact, you can invite as many colleagues as you would like. Just make sure you select the right number of “seats” in your account plan.
Once you have determined the number of seats for your account, you can invite and activate individual users through the User Management page.
When you invite a user, they will receive an email from DiginesESG with instructions to set up their own accounts on the platform.
Can people outside my organization see my data?
No, only people that are part of your organization will see your reports and data unless your grant special permission to external members. You can manage permissions and see who belongs to your organization under User Management.
Do I have to save every time I input data into my report?
No, all the data that you’ve inputted to each of the boxes are automatically saved in real-time. You won’t have to risk losing your data in case of a power outage, computer malfunction, or simply forgetting to save before closing your browser.
