EH&S Management

Dynamic Document Management

Global environmental documentation and disclosure obligations have created an overwhelming number of disclosure obligations as countries, states/provinces, and even local governmental agencies now obligated companies to report and document spills, safety procedures, and on-site incidents.  GEMS provides the necessary facility based document repository functionality, reporting, and calendaring capabilities to add productivity, while significantly reducing the risk of missing key filing deadlines.

  • Store an unlimited number of EH&S, product stewardship and fee paying documents
  • Automate internal reminders, alerts, and escalations
  • Organize documentation by facility, business unit, and/or discipline
  • Establish efficient, structured work flows for incident management and risk audits
  • Increase productivity by streamlining documentation access and analysis

Carbon and Energy Use Accounting

Carbon Management Solution

GEMS provides enterprise-wide Carbon Management that is configurable to your chosen greenhouse gas (GHG) emission calculation methodologies. Emission factors can be readily adjusted to ensure that the most accurate and reliable units of measure are used for international operations. Foresite’s Carbon Management Module supports compliance with all major reporting initiatives including:

  • UK CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme
  • US Clean Air Act Greenhouse Gas Permitting Requirements
  • Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) Greenhouse Gas Guidelines
  • WRI/WBCSD Greenhouse Gas Protocols
  • Carbon Disclosure Project reporting standards
  • GRI Disclosures

GEMS provides an intuitive facility-level energy consumption data entry portal, that can be utilized to track facility and corporate-wide emissions data, energy consumption costs, and energy usage data. This data is rolled-up to the corporate level and is viewable in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e), by individual gas, or by cost for standardized evaluation and carbon reporting.

Carbon Footprinting

Scope 3 Emissions

To accurately assess the carbon footprint of a corporation or a given product, a greenhouse gas emission accounting system must be able to incorporate the totality of emissions within your supply chain.

‘Scope 3’ emission disclosure requirements are driving carbon footprinting. Calculating your carbon footprint presents data gathering and reporting challenges that go beyond logistics.  GEMS Scope 3 Emission calculator leverages our BoM module stream to meet these obligations in a structured readily auditable fashion.

Design for the Environment (DfE)

Looking at your product from a DfE perspective requires you to analyse all stages of your products’ life cycle from the raw material extracted to the end-of-life disassembly and breakdown of its components. DfE is about designing your product so that its composition and functions have the minimum possible impact on the environment.

GEMS enables you to meet existing DfE standards (e.g. EPEAT). It interfaces with the Bill of Materials of all your products and integrates other information required to measure your products impact using a variety of tools. GEMS can model ‘What If’ Scenarios to assist you to proactively visualise the impact of any proposed product design changes.
