Ensuring comprehensive sustainability management
En una sociedad globalizada es necesario alinear las estrategias corporativas con el compromiso colectivo de mejorar el modelo de desarrollo productivo bajo los criterios ESG.
Para ello, es necesario que el cumplimiento normativo esté alineado y complementado con estándares locales e internacionales que aseguren una gestión de sustentabilidad integral
With Sigea, managing indicator information within a large corporation has never been easier.
Nuestra herramienta te permite gestionar los datos y variables que miden el trayecto hacia un escenario de Corporate Sustainabilty con impacto positivo a nivel de ESG, distribuyendo la información en toda la organización.
Sigea integrates direct sources of information at an optimum frequency to make indicators available in a timely and reliable manner, managing the traceability of each data point and verifying that it comes from a trustworthy source.
Environmental regulatory compliance must be complemented with an adequate adoption and management of standards that strengthen the sustainability of companies and projects in different areas, with a comprehensive and holistic approach, generating a framework for operating excellence, which always has an accurate compliance plan.
Sigea makes it possible to systematise corporate standards, defining the mechanisms and finding appropriate ways of fulfilling commitments, providing tools that facilitate the process of identifying those responsible and the chains for validating the information.
This module allows the integration of the standards defined by the organisation with the legal or regulatory requirements of the company, optimising the internal compliance management processes.
The Sigea® Corporate Compliance module is built to facilitate the management of environmental indicator information within a large corporation, allowing the corporate structure of the company to be built, and from there, to start assigning reporting responsibilities, disaggregating the information requirements, ensuring a chain of responsibilities for data validation, and aggregating the data, as needed, for immediate integration to higher hierarchical levels.
In addition, it allows these actions to be configured as and when the data is available, facilitating the work within each business unit through compliance schedules with alerts to users, avoiding excessive requirements during the period of the year in which the report is usually prepared.
Automating and facilitating reports on the sustainability of operations, and the degree of environmental and social responsibility of the organisation.
The construction of the reporting activities is easy and intuitive, generating using TAGs or tags the information requirements for the user, allowing different frequencies to be configured and defining what compliance evidence is necessary to support the data that the users are entering onto the platform.
Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) is an index that was launched in 1999 to evaluate the performance of thousands of publicly listed companies against ESG criteria.
Subsequently, it has become a key tool for investors who have found a safe space in sustainable businesses.
Global Reportive Initiative.

Norma de Carácter General 461.
This is General Regulation No. 461 issued by the Financial Market Commission (CMF) in Chile, which incorporates sustainability and corporate governance issues into the Annual Report of supervised entities.
Banks, insurance companies, issuers of publicly offered securities, general fund managers and stock exchanges operating in the country must report the policies, practices, and goals adopted in environmental, social, and governance matters, better known as ASG criteria or ESG for its acronym in English.
How do we do it?
01. Identify standards and indicators applicable to your business
The definition of a corporate sustainability strategy must consider the standards that will be applied to operations and the associated indicators, which should be identified in detail for each installation or business process.
The result corresponds to the detailed list of specific standards and compliance requirements for each area within the organisation. Moreover, the detailed breakdown of the records that allow the construction of sustainability indicators generates a map within the organisation that shows the information flows required for the regular calculation of indicators. indicadores de sustentabilidad, generando un mapa al interior de la organización que plasma los flujos de información requeridos para el cálculo regular de indicadores.
02. Assess risks and prioritise
Ya identificados los requisitos de estándares corporativos se debe evaluar el nivel de cumplimiento de cada estándar e identificar las brechas asociadas, lo cual debe concluir en la identificación del riesgo asociado a dicho incumplimiento.
Once the corporate standards requirements have been identified, the level of compliance with each standard must be evaluated and the associated gaps identified, which should then lead to the identification of the risk associated with said non-compliance.
The set of regulatory requirements must be evaluated on their risk of non-compliance and their cost of compliance in order to generate a prioritised list of compliance requirements. From this detailed definition, it will be time to establish the responsibilities and validation chains associated with each compliance and evidence, which will be complemented with the specification of deadlines and therefore the schedule for compliance with standards, and then, the compliance will be managed.
This is all configured in detail in SIGEA, allowing information requirements to be fulfilled, to the different responsible units, in a single request.
A form with clearly defined options allows the user to report the data and upload the supporting evidence of compliance.
With the information from the standard requirements, risk thresholds are formulated for each case and an alert messaging system is put into place.
Generamos la configuración de umbrales alertas-notificaciones y mensajería asociada a la gestión de cumplimiento, elementos que dan la dinámica del sistema al interior de la organización, permitiendo que cada usuario en un ambiente personalizado observe su panel de gestión el estado de las solicitudes que dicho usuario tiene en curso, en que estado se encuentra y con las opciones para completar las tareas.
Compliance management is complemented by the formulation of action plans, audit mechanisms to ensure the reliability of information and mechanisms for managing incidents associated with compliance with standards.
All this information is managed in SIGEA in an integrated way, allowing the information of certain elements to be correctly related to other elements of the system, such as associating an incident to the non-compliance of a certain standard.
In a simple way and with the support of our SIGEA software and equipment, a set of corporate sustainability indicators is generated and with it, the basis of a strong strategic report.
Thus, from well-organised standards compliance management, the optimisation of corporate resources is achieved by integrating standards requirements into compliance actions, which may in turn derive from other requirements, regulatory or standards, that apply to the organisation.
As a result, we have the option of generating corporate sustainability reports, based on well-designed indicators, which are properly implemented in their information flows.
In addition, not only can reports on internal management be generated to provide regular follow-ups on compliance measures and actions, but also reports for senior management/shareholders, as well as reporting to the authority in a complementary manner (e.g. the information requirements of the CMF on corporate annual reports - General Rule No. 461).
A straightforward form allows you to report data and upload evidence of compliance.
All activities, such as assignments, rejections, delays, and more are sent via e-mail within the platform to streamline processes and avoid excessive requirements during the period of the year when the report is usually prepared.
