Meet the sustainability requirements with Monitor ERP

Monitor G5 helps you comply with the new EU directive.

The new EU directive, CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive), means that even small and medium-sized companies will have to prepare sustainability reports according to the new reporting standard, ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting standards), as of 2026.

To make it easier for you to comply with the new directives, we’ve developed new functionality in Monitor G5: Sustainability by Monitor. By adding to the data which is already included in the ERP system with information on energy consumption and carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e), Monitor G5 can calculate your climate impact at component level and help you to plan your emissions at company level. This means you can easily monitor and report your environmental impact and make active sustainable decisions for your business. When you upgrade to Monitor G5, the new function is automatically included free of charge.
