Could your business be potentially polluting the environment? If so, you will be held accountable by legally enforced regulations for any potentially damaging activities that are not being monitored correctly.
What is environmental reporting?
Environmental reporting is the process of reporting the environmental activities of your business, which could potentially be damaging.
Depending on your line of business, environmental reporting could include air quality, water quality, noise pollution and land use, and if you’re at risk of polluting the environment, you are legally obliged to collect and monitor any of these elements as well as plan, collect, validate, interpret and report your findings to regulators.
Although some businesses find it difficult to have to keep their data up to date and organised, it can bring some great benefits to your business.
By collecting and reporting your environmental data, you can:
- Become more environmentally friendly
- Decrease workplace hazards
- Please your stakeholders
- Improve your reputation
- Reduce the risk of being fined
However, so many businesses continue to use spreadsheets that are complex and make the process complicated, are hard to interpret and can even contain errors.
Would you like environmental reporting to be quicker and more efficient?
When using spreadsheets, your business would have to manually collect and report your environmental data, which can take up a lot of hours in the week and can be difficult to troubleshoot or test. This is an overwhelming task as data can be placed in too many different formats and stored in a complex system, resulting in human errors or leaving you vulnerable to fraud due to the lack of control over your files.
For example, if you have multiple offices, employees would have to exchange information through email when using spreadsheets. This could lead to data being misplaced or unorganised, or again could lead to fraudulent issues, causing huge problems and disruptions in maintaining your calculations. Fraud can sometimes be undetectable until the damage is done and could result in you not being compliant with several regulations.
At EHS Data, we can provide you with an online reporting system which allows you to collect, present and analyse your data. It keeps you organised and your data up to date. The system also provides a whole compliance monitoring cycle from planning to reporting and can manage itself by using automated monitoring schedules, validation, compliance checks and can report generation.
