Laragon VISION 2030, a digital tool for comprehensive management of Sustainability and Climate Change
Laragon held a webinar to expose the role of digitization as a key element to implement a comprehensive strategy of ESG and Climate Change management . During this online event, which was moderated by Marcos González, Founder and President Editor of Corresponsables, its Foundation and ObservaRSE, the integrated management solution Laragon VISION 2030 was also presented.
Companies are facing new challenges related to ESG performance, the need to address the risks brought about by climate change and the decarbonization process. In particular, it presents new challenges for managers and teams responsible for incorporating sustainability into their strategic planning and monitoring its implementation.
This dialogue organized by Laragon and Corresponsables revolved around three presentations:
“Horizon 2030: a crucial decade towards a Sustainable Economy“. by Antonio Fuertes, Sustainability Advisor and member of ECODA’s ESG Working Group.
“Horizon 2030: are companies ready for the transformation? with the intervention of Paz Arias, Sustainability Advisor and Founder of AeQUO ESG & Sustainability Services.
“Laragon Vision 2030: towards an integrated management of Sustainability and Climate Change in companies”. by Antonio Aragon, Partner of Laragon.
Antonio Fuertes, Sustainability Advisor and member of ECODA’s ESG Working Group, highlighted the sociological changes that are taking place: “There is a change in global experience awareness, a change in the values of the new generations and also in diversity and inclusion,” he said.
He also discussed the ESG financing and investments where he mentioned the organization Follow This, a Dutch company that seeks to influence shareholder meetings of large companies to include climate commitments. “Activism is going to be increasingly important, focused mainly on oil and gas companies,” added Antonio Fuertes.
Finally, he spoke about standards, corporate governance and sustainability management. “After a few years they will look back on this era as a strange time where people invested without taking ESG criteria into account,” he said.
In the second lecture, Paz Arias, Sustainability Advisor and Founder of AeQUO ESG & Sustainability Services, discussed in depth the preparation of companies to face these challenges. “Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement requires coordinated action between governments, the private sector and society,” he explained.
Paz Arias also referred to financing: “Climate Change has become a financial axis, very powerful investments that have benefits have to be made”. In this line, he also emphasized Non-Financial Reporting: “The term non-financial information is being replaced by sustainability information. The whole engine of economic development is based on sustainability. Therefore, it is also financial. It is a sustainability information for the annual accounts to have good results”. He added that they should include more concise, effective and careful information due to the influence they have.
“Entrepreneurs and board members are already under a lot of pressure from their stakeholders about their impact on the environment and society,” said Paz Arias in relation to company management.
Regarding digitalization, Paz Arias concluded that “in a constantly changing business landscape, companies must leverage digitalization to be agile in achieving objectives, respond to legal requirements and anticipate the changing expectations of their stakeholders”.
After the first two interventions, Antonio Aragón, Partner of Laragon, presented Laragon Vision2030, an information system for the integrated management and coordinated decision-making of all Sustainability and Climate Change processes, from the definition of strategies and objectives, through program implementation, risk management, compliance and reporting. “An integrated digital platform such as Vision2030, based on Enablon technology, can improve the results of a company’s reduction projects by around 7%, bringing direct and tangible benefits in sustainability management and energy transition,” said Antonio Aragón. He also noted that it saves up to 50% of the total time spent calculating, reporting and verifying emissions.
