For your success
Collecting and consolidating ESG data is one of the biggest challenges currently facing many companies.
With the ESG Data Exchange Network, UBIRCH has developed a technology with which ESG data can be certified at source and converted into a machine-readable form.
We are the best solution for your Scope 3 data!
You are a
of ESG data?
Publishers of ESG data are companies that have to make their ESG (environmental, social, governance) data available to others, for example as part of reporting obligations, tenders or purchasing.
They can make their ESG data available via the UBIRCH Data Exchange Network so that customers can obtain it from a central location. The data is digitally signed and can be obtained in various formats. In addition to company-wide footprint data (CCF), product-specific parameters (PCF) can also be stored.

ESG data collectors, also known as subscriber services, are intended for reporting companies that want to compile their Scope 3 footprint step by step.
They can include existing data publishers or request them if additional data is required. High-quality suppliers of 3rd party data can also play a role here to supplement missing data.
How it works:
ESG DATA EXCHANGE NETWORK
1. Publish ESG data
Companies can publish their CO2 footprint data on the Ubirch platform and make it available to their customers. This avoids tedious supplier questionnaires and positions you as a modern service provider in a competitive environment. The publication of data on the UBIRCH ESG Exchange is free of charge.
Many companies need to make ESG data available to others - as part of reporting requirements, but increasingly also for tenders and for purchasing. Via the UBIRCH Data Exchange Network, companies can make their ESG data generally available so that their customers can obtain it from a uniform location. The data is digitally signed and can be obtained in different formats. In addition to company-wide footprint data (CCF), product-specific characteristic values can also be stored (PCF).
Companies will have to face a completely new challenge - in future, their sustainability reports will feature prominently in their annual reports and they will have to make clear commitments to reduction targets. In this situation, a solution that leaves no questions unanswered with regard to the database is recommended. And: modern companies will take advantage of this and, for example, voluntarily offer their ESG balance sheets for scrutiny. This can create completely new customer loyalty and trust.
2. Find ESG Data
Companies compiling their ESG report can find the necessary Scope 3 data on the Ubirch platform and subscribe to further updates from this supplier. This type of ESG data collection significantly simplifies the collation of Scope 3 data and is also based on audit-proof data.
Special calculations are required so that reporting companies or buyers can derive their shares from the ESG data stored. The Allocation Services of the UBIRCH ESG Data Exchange Network support this and calculate shares according to the specifications of the Green House Gas Protocol or the CSRD, depending on which metric the supplier has stored.
FOR ERP AND ESG SYSTEMS
Providers of solutions for collecting and aggregating CSRD-relevant data also benefit from our solution - which can be seamlessly integrated via APIs. Data can be read in and checked fully automatically. The aggregations and reports or even offsetting instructions are based on unalterable data and thus deliver a whole new level of quality.
3. Publish ESG data in machine-readable format
More and more people are interested in the data in ESG reports. In addition, the CSRD Directive requires that the data should be made available in machine-readable form. The Ubirch platform makes it possible to publish any data statements as verifiable QR codes and integrate them into the ESG report, for example.
The Subscriber Services in the UBIRCH ESG Data Exchange Network are intended for reporting companies that can compile their Scope 3 footprint step by step. Optionally, already deposited data publishers are included or these are requested if additional data is required. Our high-quality suppliers of 3rd party data can also play a role here to supplement missing data.
The new CSRD reports must also be audited and are certain to attract a great deal of attention from many quarters in the coming years. With our solution, auditors can rely on the quality and integrity of the data, as it is available in a technically certified form that can be audited down to the individual case.
