ESG—Environment, Social, and Governance

With environment, social, and governance (ESG) reporting at the top of the organizational agenda, you need a comprehensive performance management solution that provides transparency to all stakeholders and regulators. Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) helps integrate financial and nonfinancial data to fulfill more than just your reporting requirements; it also helps you plan and manage your ESG practices—now and into the future.

ESG reporting & planning solution features

Gain control of your ESG data

Connect disparate ESG data sources

ESG data is sourced from many systems across your organization, including ERP, HR, supply chain, and other operational systems, often in different standards and formats. Oracle’s ESG solution helps you connect, manage, and standardize your primary ESG data across all these systems so that you can reach your sustainability goals.

Standardize framework KPIs

The vast amount of ESG data that’s collected from across your organization is in different formats, metrics, and units. Oracle’s solution converts all of the data collected into a common standard to meet the requirements for a consistent KPI framework.


Align primary ESG data

Create and manage a single source of primary ESG data for more accurate insights. Having a single record of primary ESG data means you can set your ESG trajectory and track progress across all lines of business.

Plan for a sustainable future

Plan long-term sustainability goals

Model long-term sustainability goals across the business and get an immediate understanding of your progress across finance and operations to adjust your plans as needed.

Create actionable short-term plans

Translate long-term ESG goals into actionable, short-term financial and operational plans. Align initiatives across your business with a fully connected plan across operations, line of business, and HR.

Be alerted to anomalies

Gain instant insight into anomalies or risks that might impact your ESG plans and immediately take corrective action. Oracle Intelligence Performance Management (IPM) Insights, part of Oracle Cloud EPM, monitors your plans and alerts you to any patterns, anomalies, or material variances so you can make adjustments.

Analyze and report on ESG with confidence

Analyze and report ESG performance

With full adhoc analysis, reporting, and dashboard capabilities, you can easily get an overview of your ESG metrics and do a detailed analysis to track your performance toward your ESG targets.

Allow all stakeholders to collaborate on data and narrative in internal and external reports to share the context around your ESG metrics—all within a secure and controlled environment.

Meet all ESG reporting standards

The flexibility of Oracle’s Cloud EPM platform ensures that you can meet the reporting requirements of most regulatory organizations, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), and Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
