EtQ's Sustainability module has been added to the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) software suite to provide organizations with a centralized resource for managing and tracking their sustainability strategies and aspects.
The following are EtQ’s capabilities for Sustainability Management:
- Environmental Aspects, Objectives and Targets: Keeping record of the environmental aspects that are being tracked helps an organization successfully manage their sustainability initiatives. Keeping track of the aspects and targets will provide the organization with a visual of where they are, and where they ultimately want to be, in regard to their sustainability initiatives. An EHS system has the platform that will help to identify these aspects and link them to certain areas in the organization. With the EHS’s hierarchal structure, the organization can identify the aspects (the item that impacts the environment), set goals that are consistent with environmental policy and considers environmental impacts as well as laws and regulations, and set targets based on the objectives.
- Performance Management: Once aspects, objectives, and targets have been set, the next step is to organize this data as effectively as possible. EtQ enables an organization to effectively gather data from monitoring initiatives and enter it into the system to analyze and track progress. EtQ’s EHS system allows an organization to input all data regarding sustainability initiatives and compare them to set targets to find trends in sustainability.
- Taking Action: EtQ’s automated workflow allows the company to take immediate action on sustainability events, through the use of integrated tools such as corrective and preventive action, change management, and employee training.
EtQ’s Sustainability Management module will help an organization to more effectively track, measure, and report on their sustainability initiatives, and ultimately enable an organization to function with the least impact possible on the environment.
Sustainability is just one of the many processes EtQ's Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), quality, and compliance management software streamlines and simplifies. EtQ's EHS, quality and compliance software lets you take full advantage of the familiarity that most of your users already have with a Web browser by providing an interface with which they are already comfortable and productive. Modules within the EHS software suite include: Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), job safety analysis, crisis management, monitoring & inspection, and more.
