Impact with clients
Worldwide, business leaders face market and investor pressure to optimize operational performance at an accelerating pace and larger scale.
To achieve this, companies are pursuing innovation and new value-creation opportunities through digital transformation of the enterprise. A core part of the transformation is the digitization of environment, health and safety and sustainability systems, making processes more automated, better connected and insightful.
ERM’s Digital Services help organizations achieve these improvements in environmental, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability performance through tech-enabled innovation. We deliver these business outcomes through our global network, EHS and sustainability subject matter expertise and extensive digital capabilities.
Our digital services approach integrates the following:
- Digital advisory: We help clients understand the value of digital transformation and identify a roadmap and program to realize this value while mitigating risks. In an increasingly complex world, our clients can find it difficult to decide where to start or how to progress. Our “Discover, Design, Deliver” process develops an EHS and sustainability digital roadmap aligned to the corporate business objectives while delivering improved performance; meeting rising stakeholder expectations; and enabling faster, better, safer operations.
- Digital systems: We support business leaders in the successful selection, configuration, implementation and sustainment of EHS and sustainability management information systems. We bring a deep understanding of global EHS and sustainability business capabilities, regulatory requirements and best practices. We also provide objective, independent advice on off-the-shelf or custom-built, third-party technologies and knowledge of the market presence of these technologies within our clients.
- Data management and analytics: We help clients understand what is most important to measure, what to look for, where to look and how to convert data to actionable insights through visualizations, predictive/preventative models, data curation and smart automations, underpinned by an integrated data governance strategy.
In addition to digital services, ERM consultants use technology as a key enabler running through all that we do. We also share insights into complex issues and trends driven by technology. For example, SustainAbility, an ERM Group company, published a new report authored for 2030 Vision that explores how artificial intelligence (AI) provides an opportunity to understand and solve the framework for good agreed in 2015 by 193 countries: the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
