  • Include sustainability criteria in asset acquisition (ISO 14000 as an example).
  • Maintain compliance to regulations and manage remediation with integrated Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS/HSE) processes.
  • Enable energy efficiency by optimizing asset and resource performance.
  • Reduce waste by extending asset lifecycles and reducing inventories.
  • Reach carbon footprint goals with monitoring and measurement at an asset level.
