Understand, address, and report on your financed emissions

Optera’s ESG Insights collects and consolidates emissions data from across your portfolio into a comprehensive dashboard, so that you can understand your overall financed emissions and drill down at a portfolio company level. Prioritize engagement with the PortCos that will have the biggest impact on your decarbonization strategy. 

We know that managing and reducing your scope 3 emissions is complex work. That’s why all software engagements come with a dedicated sustainability partner.  Your Optera consultant will be on hand to help you not only manage and understand the data, but engage with your portfolio companies to build a scalable, repeatable program.

Emissions management for every type of PortCo

No matter what size, industry, or type of portfolio companies you have, Optera’s platform can accommodate them and grow with you as your portfolio scales. 

Accurate emissions data

Establish a solid foundation for ongoing emissions accounting and ensure your inventory aligns with industry standards. Our database of corporate disclosures and emissions factors will provide you with accurate data, especially when primary data isn't available. 

Visualize portfolio-wide emissions

Gather and visualize the emissions inventory of your entire portfolio by rolling up PortCo-level emissions into one, comprehensive dashboard. This way, you can assess your own risk and ensure your portfolio is ready for the low-carbon future.

Empower portfolio companies 

Deep-dive into company-specific emissions data so you can help each PortCo determine the most impactful reduction initiatives. Plus, give your portfolio companies access to the same data, so they can take ownership over their own sustainability program.

Forecast future emissions

Forecast and visualize your portfolio’s future emissions based on factors like portfolio growth, time and money spent on sustainability initiatives, and which sustainability initiatives you decide to pursue – and empower your PortCos to do the same.

Prepare for disclosures & LP requests

Deliver transparent and accurate financed emissions reporting to regulatory bodies and industry initiatives. And be ready to provide your limited partners with the emissions data they’re asking for.
