Environmental & Risk Management

  • ARCHIBUS Environment Sustainability Assessment

      OVERVIEW

      Measure performance indicators and mitigate risk to reduce an organization's carbon footprint and achieve other environmental goals.

      BENEFITS

      • Establishes proactive sustainability processes that can improve operational efficiencies, enhance stakeholder work environments, and boost asset value
      • Identifies which assets should be repaired, renovated or replaced to achieve environmental efficiency goals or support an existing LEEDTM rating program
      • Improves capital budgeting and planning capabilities by tracking costs and budgets associated with environmental deficiencies
      • Increases efficiency of sustainability efforts by integrating assessment with work order management and by using a unified data repository



      The Assessment Scoreboard provides users with a graphical approach to evaluate high-priority environmental sustainability items objectively and then drill down for more detailed information on individual items.

      An increasing number of organizations are recognizing the strategic value of reducing their carbon footprint to protect the environment and enhance their bottom line. Web-based ARCHIBUS Environmental Sustainability Assessment helps make the concept of environmental sustainability a reality by tracking, ranking, and documenting details on the condition and use of physical assets so remedial action can be taken. Unlike spreadsheets and other manual processes, the application provides a truly objective and systematic method of identifying and prioritizing facility replacements, upgrades, and renovations, based on environmental sustainability criteria while leveraging other ARCHIBUS facilities data from its central repository.

  • ARCHIBUS Energy Management

      OVERVIEW

      Track and manage energy use to control costs, reduce carbon footprint, and mitigate risk.

      BENEFITS

      • Lowers annual energy costs, typically by 5% (or approximately $0.10 - 0.20 USD per square foot of space/year) and reduces carbon footprint
      • Provides audit capabilities to easily access, aggregate, and evaluate consumption patterns as the basis to renegotiate rates and consolidate energy providers
      • Reduces business risk and exposure to changes in energy costs or carbon emissions regulation through "what-if¡± analyses
      • Improves decision-making by aligning energy spending to organizational priorities



      Graphical dashboard views, of energy cost/rate statistics and many other metrics, simplify visualization and analysis while improving decision support for energy management strategies.

      With high energy costs, mandates to reduce carbon emissions, and sustainability efforts gaining more visibility, effective energy management has become a critical practice for forward-looking organizations. ARCHIBUS Energy Management provides the means to easily aggregate, evaluate, and optimize energy and utility spending decisions to reduce unnecessary consumption and costs. Unlike spreadsheets or finance software alone, Energy Management helps users correlate and manage extensive cost data with real-time facility and infrastructure portfolio information to track energy expenditures against a business plan or objective benchmarks.

  • ARCHIBUS Green Building

      OVERVIEW

      Achieve carbon footprint and environmental sustainability certification goals for individual buildings or across an entire portfolio

      BENEFITS

      • Delivers an information framework to help reduce overall carbon footprint
      • Facilitates compliance with internal or external reporting requirements
      • Streamlines the computation and comparison of greenhouse gas emissions for all buildings in a portfolio and tracks changes over time
      • Tracks progress, evaluates payback, and identifies best practices to simplify sustainability certification and requalification initiatives



      Compare emissions by building, scope, and year at a glance and drill down to emission scope detail to identify key drivers and areas for improvement

      Managers are increasingly being tasked with achieving carbon footprint goals and managing environmental sustainability certification scores for individual buildings or across their entire portfolio. ARCHIBUS Green Building aids those managers by delivering a highly versatile and robust Web-based platform to provide the information framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and managing the environmental sustainability certification and recertification process. The application helps guide users through the processes of defining environmental criteria and protocols, collecting portfolio data, and evaluating results to help make informed and cost-effective decisions to achieve sustainability goals.

  • ARCHIBUS Waste Management

      OVERVIEW

      Track and manage waste streams from generation through disposition to minimize health and regulatory risk.

      BENEFITS

      • Simplifies the process for tracking and managing hazardous waste streams to sustain a safe working environment
      • Decreases the risk of fines or litigation surrounding hazardous waste storage and disposal procedures
      • Increases the visibility and improves accountability for waste reduction or recycling initiatives to help reduce carbon footprint and improve LEED™ or other sustainability scores
      • Reduces the cost and effort of satisfying waste audit and reporting requirements



      ARCHIBUS Waste Management provides defensible information to assess the effectiveness of waste reduction and recycling programs in addition to tracking and managing hazardous waste

      Managing waste streams, particularly hazardous waste, is often fraught with risk and possible negative outcomes, if handled poorly. Organizations need not only to cope with the often burdensome regulatory paperwork, but also to avoid the risk of errors, omissions, and accidents that can lead to injuries, penalties and/or potential litigation. Web-based ARCHIBUS Waste Management provides a streamlined and integrated approach to tracking, managing, and reducing both hazardous and non-hazardous waste. It helps smoothly process the information flow, starting from the point of generation, through accumulation, storage, shipment or emission, and final disposition. And it provides defensible information to assess the effectiveness of waste reduction and recycling programs that, in turn, help reduce carbon footprint and increase LEED or other sustainability scores.
