Climate Change has put Environmental Management at the forefront of Government’s attitude towards business through taxation or regulations. By taking substantial voluntary steps, companies can persuade governments and the wider public that they are taking issues seriously with respect to standards and impacts on the environment. Reactionary approaches to regulatory impositions generally result in a range of ad hoc management measures that normally place an impost and overhead to the business. The result is in an unimpressive image for those responsible for providing compliance in the eyes of senior management.
With Licences and penalties being expensive tight control over Environmental Management can have dramatic saving not only in dollar terms but also in terms of corporate image.

Environment Reduction Programs
Environment Reduction Programs are workflow based tasks for implementing Environmental Controls and/or Mitigation on identified hazards and processes.
The automatic workflow notification, reminders, and escalations ensure Environmental controls and Mitigation measures are fully implemented. With the Workflow including reassessment of the Risk, Fast Track creates an environment for Continuous Improvement and Mitigation.
Environment Data Monitoring and KPIs
The Data Monitoring function manages Key Performance Indicator (KPI) monitoring and reporting. KPIs are grouped by category with min/max targets and reporting frequencies for scheduling of recording by dept/location. There is immediate notification when readings are outside the limits or scheduled data recordings are missed.
The pro-active notification of poor KPIs allows for immediate correction of causes reducing the effect otherwise resulting in waiting for normal reporting cycles.
