Variability in Compliance Obligations
Distributed enterprises, like retailers, deal with environmental and safety regulations and standards across many jurisdictions. Non-compliance with any of these EHS requirements can result in significant costs.
EHS managers for retail companies are often responsible for remotely managing EHS programs for many sites, making it difficult to know exactly what is going on at each individual brick-and-mortar location. High employee turnover at the site level is a common problem for retailers, so there’s little time to teach new programs and properly train new employees.
Retailers need to collect and analyze information to understand where to apply their limited resources to achieve the biggest impact and identify areas for continued operations improvement. Systems are often siloed and manual effort must be undertaken to create a holistic view.
Robust reports and easy to edit dashboards give key stakeholders the ability to monitor activities and critical metrics from any location.

In the case of Walmart, an Enviance retail customer and Verdantix EHS Innovation Award winner, this major retailer used the Enviance Management System to track its hazardous waste volume. By analyzing that data, Walmart implemented a customized waste pick-up schedule for each store based on individual waste volumes. This customized waste schedule allowed each store to operate more efficiently based on its own waste production, which ultimately led to significant savings across the organization.
