Asset Management’s environmental benefits

Jun 13 2014

As a business, it is becoming increasingly necessary to consider your environmental responsibility. The bigger the organisation; the bigger the environmental statement you have to convey, in terms of reducing your carbon footprint, recycling and so on.

In recent times, we have noticed a rise in the amount of issues and queries raised by our customers in relation to their environmental responsibilities.

With Asset Management Software such as Asset4000, companies can obtain a clearer picture of what fixed assets they have within their organisation, and how best to utilise them more effectively.

For example, with our Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) decisions can be made on the effectiveness and economy of a machine. If the machine is old and not performing as it should, it can be flagged as needing to be replaced.

Another aspect that can be monitored via our systems is the cost of maintaining and repairing a machine, again to check whether the machine in question is still viable.

Similarly, a distribution firm can use an asset registry for vehicles; recording the environmental aspects, such as emissions and fuel consumption. When these companies are required to submit, or compile data about their carbon footprint, their lives are made a lot easier with solutions in place that hold this data and can report on it extremely quickly and easily.

Furthermore, with the implementation of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive some years back now, it is now essential for companies to recycle electrical equipment; from laptops to batteries to light fittings, correctly, and maintaining an accurate record of this is crucial to WEEE directive compliance.

Overall, although not our direct line of business operations, RAM and its asset management software can really can help improve, monitor and manage a company’s environmental responsibility.
