IHS Environmental Performance Solution
What if you could reach beyond regulations to enable proactive decisions that enhance efficiency and competitiveness?
The IHS Environmental Performance Solution™ enables organizations to transform environmental management into a competitive edge. We help you comply with regulations, standards and voluntary initiatives while minimizing the impact of compliance processes on facilities, personnel and production. IHS streamlines environmental workflows and offers visibility across your operations so you can reach your sustainability and Operational Excellence goals.
Organizations worldwide are struggling to comply with a proliferating patchwork of government environmental regulations, voluntary reporting protocols such as CDP and GRI, industry standards and corporate sustainability initiatives. At the same time, increasing compliance obligations and stakeholder reporting requirements are demanding a level of accuracy, comparability and traceability that is similar to standards for financial reporting. Investors are using these reports and the related non-financial metrics to make important investment decisions.
