Financial-grade, auditable CO2e disclosure

Future-proof solutions that comply with financed emissions (Scope 3.15)
disclosure regulations
under SFDR (and PCAF) and empower banks to
navigate the complexities of reporting & improve BTAR.

It's a win win solution

Helping SMEs and banks

Without SMEs we cannot achieve Net Zero, as worldwide, they represent 99% of businesses and 50% of CO2e emissions. 

There are currently barriers to achieving this.

SMEs lack resources and incentives to report CO2e. This means data on CO2e is scarce and of poor quality, excluding SMEs from green finance and taking action towards Net Zero. 

“With the help of Omnevue's quality CO2e reporting solutions, SMEs with higher emissions and a Net Zero Plan (NZP) can be prioritised by banks for green financing on preferential terms to invest in CO2e reduction projects. Banks are also incentivised, they can use the CO2e report and NZP to classify their finance as green, reducing their own emissions (Scope 3) and lowering cost of equity.”
