Since the need to understand regulations and environmental obligations has become more critical and complex, companies are now using enterprise-wide software systems to track and manage their environmental data, and report on environmental compliance status.
Now that EUEC 2013 has wrapped, we wanted to share with you some revealing feedback from the show
floor. We surveyed the environmental professionals at the show about how regulation and sustainability issues are affecting their companies and organizations – and wound up with some surprising results.
When utilizing an environmental management system, the quality of the data entered has a great impact on the quality of the analysis you get out of it. As an environmental tracking system, Enviance provides a means for companies to manage their regulatory obligations and help ensure ongoing compliance. However, the quality of information and the manner in which it enters the system are critical to achieving those obligations.
Environmental reporting and compliance is a necessary, but daunting task. To keep up with stringentrequirements for monitoring gases and chemicals, many major emitters are quickly ditching inefficient internal reporting systems and embracing dynamic cloud-based systems.
For most companies, legacy systems for reporting on environmental impact can be cumbersome, slow, and error-ridden. Moving to an electronic reporting system can mitigate these issues, but that transition is a significant and daunting task, and with requirements and reporting systems differing drastically on a state by state basis, it can be difficult to glean best practices and standards.
