Are you sweating your assets?

Change is inevitable and with world leaders at loggerheads, an interesting future is unfolding.

 

With change comes opportunity and there is a stronger case for sustainability and getting the most out of what we have, instead of assuming there is a ‘money tree’ we run to because we want a new asset.

 

By managing the lifecycle of our assets we can extend the usefulness many times over and enjoy the corresponding savings, to use on other projects.

 

In terms of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) we should be seen to be managing performance indicators and mitigating risk to reduce our organisation’s carbon footprint and helping achieve other environmental goals too.

 

Having a suitable application helps you establish proactive sustainability processes that can improve operational efficiencies, enhance stakeholder work environments, and boost the value of your assets.

 

As they say “… you can’t manage what you can’t measure” and with them right application you can identify which assets should be repaired, renovated or replaced to achieve environmental efficiency goals.

 

A natural by-product is that the increased visibility improves capital budgeting and planning capabilities by tracking costs and budgets associated with environmental deficiencies and so 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 organisations are recognising the strategic value of reducing their carbon footprint to protect the environment and enhance their effectiveness.

 

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, if necessary.

 

Unlike spreadsheets and other manual processes, the application provides a truly objective and systematic method of identifying and prioritising facility replacements, upgrades, and renovations, based on environmental sustainability criteria while leveraging other ARCHIBUS facilities data from its central repository.

 

By using only spreadsheets and other manual processes, many facility professionals lack the centralised data and productivity tools needed to reduce their carbon footprint by a specific percentage per year.

 

Similarly, they may find it difficult to measure existing conditions, quantify the impact of deficiencies, and prioritise items within an overall remediation program.

 

The ARCHIBUS application provides both the tools and objective methodology to establish proactive sustainability processes that are both environmentally and economically defensible.

 

It helps promote an “evaluative culture” among stakeholders, in which proactive sustainability concepts are incorporated into daily operations and supports executive-level justification and approval of sustainability projects by providing a holistic lifecycle view from initiation through validation.

 

Once started it helps build credibility of sustainability projects using accurate and consistent assessment standards across all assets, locations, or operating units.

 

Importantly it helps sustain asset values by maintaining desirable, environmentally-sound facilities, prioritise repairs, renovations and replacements.

 

Environmental Sustainability Assessment enables the demonstration of positive effects that environmentally-friendly assets and processes have on the organisation.

 

The application benchmarks consumption against ideal levels, for example, and indicates the steps necessary to replace or improve the performance of inefficient assets.
