Software Boosts Meridian’s GHG Reporting Productivity 50%
Meridian Energy has adopted a software platform to streamline its greenhouse gas reporting, a technology investment the company says will improve productivity 50 percent by cutting down the time to gather, analyze and report data.
Meridian, a New Zealand-based integrated renewable energy company, previously used a spreadsheet-based system, which required manual data entry, multiple checks and frequent requests to update the information.
PE International implemented the SoFi Enterprise Sustainability Performance software, which has a web-based information management system and allows Meridian to expand its current GHG reporting to include more Scope 3 emission sources, such as employees commuting and purchased goods and services.
The software also enabled the renewable energy company to restructure and streamline its reporting and auditing process.
Meridian says the company is now able to report to a number of voluntary and mandatory reporting schemes for its operations in New Zealand and Australia, helping boost its reputation and build creditability with retail customers.
Meridian advises its retail customers in a number of areas, including how they can reduce energy use. Using PE International’s software, which Meridian expects to reduce its own energy use, gave it the credibility to have these discussions, says Alison Howard, Meridian’s sustainability performance adviser.
PE International’s software will track, monitor and report on the air emissions and overall key performance indicator for Kimberly-Clark’s energy-saving programs from 105 manufacturing facilities and 50 administrative offices worldwide. Kimberly-Clark already uses PE International’s GaBi software for product sustainability.
PE International’s client include Bayer, Interface, Kraft Foods, Siemens, Unilever and Volkswagen.
