Cority Partners with CoreFiling to Enhance XBRL Tagging Capabilities for CSRD and Sustainability Reporting

AI-Powered Tagging Solution to Meet New Global Reporting Standards

July 10, 2024 – Toronto, ON – Cority, a leading global provider of environmental, health, and safety (EHS) and sustainability software, today announced a strategic partnership with CoreFiling, a renowned expert in XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) and iXBRL (inline XBRL) solutions. This collaboration will leverage CoreFiling’s Seahorse iXBRL tagging capabilities into Cority’s Sustainability Cloud, a suite of solutions to collect, manage, analyze, and report on sustainability performance across the entire value chain.

iXBRL, an international standard for digital business reporting, adds machine-readable data to annual financial reports, providing a single, streamlined document for financial and non-financial data and enhancing usability for investors and regulatory bodies. However, sustainability professionals often face significant challenges with XBRL tagging due to its complexity. Non-compliance can lead to severe legal penalties, reputational damage, competitive disadvantages, and missed business opportunities. As frameworks like the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) demand rigorous reporting standards, the need for reliable and efficient XBRL tagging solutions has become paramount.

“Our partnership with CoreFiling brings ease, reliability and speed to our global customers through their specialization in XBRL,” said Alex Hardwick, director of sustainability planning and enablement at Cority and former environment and sustainability consultant. “And as regulatory environments evolve, with CSRD in the EU and upcoming greenhouse gas disclosures in the U.S., having a robust tagging solution for ESG reporting will only grow in importance. This integration ensures that businesses not only comply with regulations but also gain a competitive edge through enhanced transparency and data accuracy. Together, we are setting a new standard for sustainability reporting.”

Enabling customers to meet regulatory requirements and respond to key mandates, particularly CSRD, the partnership is added value for Cority’s already robust standards reporting, data analysis and emissions tracking features. Cority will offer its customers access to CoreFiling’s Seahorse solution, which takes a customer’s annual report in PDF, Word, Excel or InDesign formats and creates a fully tagged inline XBRL filing. Its automated tagging and AI-assisted tag selection use machine learning to consider thousands of previous tagging selections. This makes Seahorse the financial world’s fastest and most accurate tagging system.

Key features of the new integration include:

  • Auto-tagging and AI: Quickly tags tables and recommends tags based on machine learning, not just search.
  • Export and Review: Provides a detailed export of the tagging within the document for easy review.
  • Report Validation: Ensures the report is valid and ready for immediate submission.
  • Tag Rollover: Transfers tags between similar reports or different periods to make subsequent-year tagging consistent and efficient.

“We are thrilled to extend the benefits of our Seahorse solution to Cority’s customers, addressing the growing global need for efficient and consistent XBRL tagging in sustainability reporting,” said Ben Russell, strategic markets and innovation director at CoreFiling. “Our collaboration with Cority will enable companies to proactively engage in sustainable practices and meet rigorous reporting standards.”

Cority’s Professional Services team are available to support customers through every step of the XBRL tagging process, from data collection to the creation of the final report. This comprehensive service will be available for all Cority Sustainability Cloud users, ensuring they can efficiently meet their regulatory reporting requirements.
