IDMC for ESG: The Intelligent Data Management Cloud for Sustainable ESG Practices.

What is IDMC for ESG, and why industry leaders like Microsoft, Ford and Federated Hermes are leveraging it?

Data and Cloud Management pioneer and global leader, Informatica, has announced the Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) for ESG Sustainability. This solution provides an end-to-end integrated data management cloud that enables the entire data lifecycle. It includes the foundational elements of data discovery, ingestion, integration of data and applications and quality improvement. Single views and business 360 applications, governance, privacy and data sharing and democratization for ESG sustainability data round out its robust features.

IDMC for ESG Sustainability leverages Informatica’s cloud-native solutions as an integrated platform to help companies access and leverage fit-for-use ESG data. “With Informatica, we know what data is coming in across all of our ESG data vendors, and it’s really important to get to the operational and commercial view of that data for ESG,” said Sally Bashuan, Executive Director and Head of Data Governance at Federated Hermes.

IDMC for ESG Sustainability supports top ESG business imperatives, including:

Regulatory Compliance

IDMC for ESG Sustainability helps companies comply with a variety of industry regulations, including the upcoming TCFD reporting requirements, the EU Taxonomy, and the ISSB and TCFD mandates for organizations across G7 and G20 countries.

Value Chain Due Diligence and the Circular Economy

IDMC for ESG Sustainability also helps companies with value chain due diligence and the circular economy. It does this by providing capabilities for collecting, governing, mastering, and analyzing Scope 3 carbon emissions data, human rights data, ESG rating agency data, and product lifecycle management data. This information can be used to identify and mitigate risks, make informed decisions about suppliers and products, and reduce environmental impact.

ESG Impact Measurement

IDMC for ESG Sustainability also helps companies measure their ESG impact. It does this by providing capabilities for linking company activities and data to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations. This information can be used to track progress towards ESG goals and report on impact to stakeholders.

Net-Zero Carbon Emissions

IDMC for ESG Sustainability also helps companies achieve net-zero carbon emissions. It does this by providing capabilities for measuring progress against science-based targets and identifying opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
