Eco-footprint management solution from IFS helps businesses cut costs and carbon
IFS has launched its Eco-footprint Management tool to provide organizations with unprecedented control and transparency on the environmental impact of their operations. The tool offers customers an enterprise standard methodology to help them control costs and meet an urgent need to prepare for compliance with environmental legislation.
Eco-footprint Management will be added to IFS’s software suite, IFS Applications. Users will be able to configure IFS Applications to capture environmental impact information from throughout their business just as easily as they configure their financial system to capture cost. IFS customers will be able to track the impact of a broad spectrum of activities ranging from raw material sourcing to product design to logistics and emissions – helping them analyze their operations, learn environmental patterns and plan for urgent legislative requirements.
The new application will support IFS customers around the globe who are under increasing pressure to comply with upcoming environmental legislations such as Europe’s EuP Directive, the Environmental Liability Directive and the EU Restriction, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) regulation as well as Australia’s National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulation and the US Climate Action Partnership’s recently proposed ‘Blueprint for Legislative Action’ against climate change.
