Measuring Up

Measuring Up

Measurabl is a software platform designed to help organizations manage and report on their sustainability and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. It provides tools for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data related to sustainability initiatives, energy usage, water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and other key metrics.

For the past 6 years I spent with Measurabl, I led the upgrade of a web application to a modern framework with a custom build with new dependencies for theming, internationalization and deployment chosen and implemented by me. Over the years, I directly engineered a library of reusable presentational components such as tables, forms, maps and charts which I used in multiple premium subscription features of the application. Additionally, I integrated many 3rd party services into the app with internationalization, reporting and deployment/debugging technologies. 

In collaboration with the development team, we developed a web application and optimized the quality and efficiency of the CI/CD process. With a passion for building rich UI frontend applications and efficient APIs and proficiency in software technologies has allowed me to bridge the gap between technical and non-technical audiences. Resolving client demands and simplifying technical issues.

One of the premium subscription features I engineered was the Physical Climate Risk Report. This report required a client side component base UI to communicate with a REST API to render climate risk data as a report for the customer's portfolio. The UI report consists of filters to refine the results to specific climate risks and locations with the results produced on a page with charts, tables and a maps. There is also a PDF export rendered on the backend server with additional charting libraries.

Keep in mind that climate risk assessment and reporting have become increasingly important in the corporate world due to growing awareness of climate change and its potential impact on businesses. Many companies are now integrating climate risk assessments into their sustainability reporting and overall risk management strategies. 

Key features and capabilities of Measurabl include:

Data Collection and Aggregation: Measurabl allows organizations to gather data from various sources, such as utility bills, building management systems, and third-party vendors. This data is aggregated and organized within the platform.

Performance Tracking: Users can track sustainability metrics, monitor energy and resource usage, and assess the environmental impact of their operations over time.

Benchmarking: Measurabl enables benchmarking against industry standards and peers, helping organizations understand how their performance compares to similar entities.

Reporting and Disclosure: The platform assists in generating sustainability reports and disclosures, which are often required for compliance with regulations or voluntary reporting initiatives like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) or the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Data Visualization: Measurabl provides data visualization tools that help users understand trends, identify opportunities for improvement, and communicate their sustainability efforts effectively.

Integration: Measurabl can integrate with various data sources and systems, facilitating the seamless flow of data and reducing the need for manual data entry.

Certifications and Ratings: The platform supports organizations in achieving sustainability certifications, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), and in improving their environmental ratings.

Engagement and Stakeholder Communication: Measurabl aids in engaging stakeholders, including investors, customers, and employees, by providing transparent and credible information about an organization's sustainability performance.

Measurabl is particularly valuable for businesses and organizations seeking to measure, manage, and communicate their sustainability efforts.
