Managing facilities, buildings, and assets

This section details the setting up a facility, and buildings or assets in the system. The facility is the geographical location, for example, street, postcode, region, or country. This is a mandatory requirement, as all regulatory reporting initiatives, demand that the emissions be reported by address. Governments and other organizations can use this to profile the emissions by country or region. International best practice for emissions reporting is to use the most appropriate emissions factor available for that country or region. By organizing your data in the Diligent ESG system by geography, the system can automatically select the most appropriate emissions factors for that emission. The lowest layer of reporting granularity is a building or asset. An asset can be a room, a meter, a vehicle, an employee, or a piece of equipment. A building can be a cost center, business unit, department, or company specific region. Assets and building are associated to a facility.
