As governments, industries, and organizations around the world come under growing pressure to act on climate change, nearly all are struggling with the same challenge: how to adapt their existing systems and processes, from across the organization and specifically within the EHS (Environment, Health, and Safety) functions, to achieve “net zero” greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Many of the existing methods used to track and measure emissions are kept in spreadsheets, daily checklists housed in binders, or disparate systems decoupled and decentralized from each other. Digitization, on the other hand, solves the problem of outdated and unintegrated data by converting business processes over to digital workflows and technologies, instead of stale analog or offline systems.
With digitization’s benefit of improved visibility into data, operations, and processes, it can support an organization’s efforts to not only examine their emissions impact but see how changes can positively impact their carbon footprint, help them achieve net-zero, and remain profitable while doing so.
In the pages that follow, we’ll look at what actions will be required of enterprises
committed to traversing the path to long-term sustainability (e.g. a balance between people, planet, and profit). We’ll acknowledge that a wide array of factors ensures that this journey won’t be easy, but we’ll also suggest there’s tools at the ready to support any organization prepared to adapt.
Digitization, we’ll show, is a key to emissions-reduction success across the entire value
chain of a business. With automated tools and systems designed to make sense of the reams of data related to your company’s activities that impact its carbon footprint, you can arm your team with the information they need to achieve your carbon reduction goals.
In this eBook, a unique look is provided showing how the digitization of EHS programs can support an organization’s goal to achieve net zero with dedicated ESG reporting.
