Tim Dowling of AEA Technology looks at the increasing use of technology by environmental managers and examines what that means for the future of information management.
Environmental managers have been relatively slow to use new technology to help them carry out data gathering, storage, analysis and reporting, but now scrutiny is greater, and responsibilities are broader, they are finding a trusted baseline of business-wide technology tools are needed to exploit that information.
Most businesses collect some environmental data, such as energy use, tonnes of waste produced, and business miles driven. But two factors are quickly changing this simplistic approach – senior managers in industry are realising the real value of environmental information and regulators are seeking greater confidence in industrial operations.
Typically, companies have responded by gathering specific data to help resolve particular issues or by collecting more general data on a range of issues to build a better picture of total environmental impact.
