Going Green – The Importance of Digitalising Environmental Data

Incorporating efficient environmental data management systems is one of the key factors, which contributes to a business’ success. Following the appropriate trends in the current market also involves complying and staying up to date with the latest acts and legislation. This especially is an important part of corporate compliance for organizations operating in the industrial and resource sectors, where the environmental impacts and their management is vital to their day-to-day operations. For example, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process supplied by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found an increase in involvement with the storage of environmental data, where companies are utilizing offsite solutions to manage their data.
With the increase in companies converting to this standard, under the NEPA process, the focus on environmental data management systems has shifted in a positive direction. Before the acceptance of data management strategies, it was all too easy to be overwhelmed by the excessive amounts of paperwork associated with compliance measures and regulation standards.
This may add to the complexity of maintaining large amounts of environmental data, and having multiple storage locations, which has previously been the typical scenario. However, the problem of having scattered multi-layered systems relates to their associated slow productivity and being outdated, as data management systems have evolved to handle large amounts of data in one location. Implementing specialized environmental data management software systems enables organizations to streamline their environmental data management, and encourage efficiency
throughout the entire process.
Implementing and centralizing data management for all sustainability and environmental data including carbon accounting, sustainability, environmental compliance, supply chain management and more, creates a coherent system where all necessary information is easily entered into and always accessible in one place.
