Ames-based Workiva Inc. announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Persefoni Inc., a climate management and account platform, to provide transparent, investor-grade carbon disclosures to joint customers. The companies said their partnership establishes “the only reporting solution in the market that unifies transparent and connected financial and environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting with deeper granularity around greenhouse gas accounting in accordance with the greenhouse gas protocols.” New climate-related disclosure protocols are driving a need for chief financial officers and corporate boards to incorporate carbon reporting requirements of a revised regulatory framework into daily operations. “Workiva continues to develop and deliver innovative capabilities that ensure our end-to-end platform enables our customers to meet evolving ESG disclosure requirements,” said Julie Iskow, chief operating officer of Workiva. “By partnering with Persefoni, we’re able to deliver investor and board-grade carbon data that can be used to make better decisions for businesses and the environment.” In October, Tempe, Ariz.-based Persefoni announced it had raised $101 million in a series B financing round.
