ESG and energy transition: Odot’s vision for sustainable energy management.

Back to all articles

In the rapidly changing energy market, companies face increasing complexity and regulation. The need to create an optimal and cost-efficient energy landscape is becoming increasingly urgent, especially with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria playing a central role in business. At Odot, in partnership with BDO, we are well prepared to support companies in integrating ESG reporting into their energy management. In this blog post, we share our vision and approach.

1. The need for ESG in energy management.

Why ESG matters.

ESG strategies are increasingly recognised as essential elements for sustainable business. ESG criteria not only provide companies with a framework to make environmentally and socially responsible decisions, but also help ensure a solid governance structure. This is crucial at a time when regulations such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the EU Taxonomy require companies to be transparent about their ESG performance.

Regulatory pressure and accountability.

Major regulatory changes will come into effect in 2024, including the expansion of the EU Taxonomy, which will require large companies to report on their ESG performance. This will lead to greater transparency and comparability, allowing stakeholders to include ESG considerations in their decision-making. For companies, this means an increased need to adjust and implement their ESG strategies in a timely manner.

2. Odot's expertise in Energy Accounting.

Our approach.

At Odot, we combine our years of expertise in energy management with cutting-edge technologies to help companies optimise their energy contracts and reduce costs. By accurately measuring and analysing at quarter-hourly level, we can calculate the cost, revenue and CO2 emissions of each MWh. This contributes to efficient ESG reporting and helps companies make informed sustainability decisions.

3. Implementation of renewable energy solutions.

Optimisation of energy contracts.

Our approach starts with a thorough analysis of our customers' current energy situation. We assess the different components of their energy contracts and look for opportunities to reduce costs and implement sustainable solutions. This includes considering options such as energy and PPA contracts, as well as energy sharing and injection contracts, with attention to the customer's specific consumption profile.

Innovative software solutions.

One of our key strengths is the my.Odot application, which provides our customers with unique insights and transparency into their energy situation. This user-friendly software supports our integrated approach and visualises data-driven analyses, contributing to 100% transparency in our actions. This enables companies to make better-informed decisions and achieve their ESG goals effectively.
