Customers can reap cost savings through efficiency improvements in energy and material consumption, and by applying sustainability metrics in all stages of the product lifecycle process. ROI validation comes through energy modeling and trend analysis of main energy drivers. Companies can also generate increased revenue through higher sustainability ratings and performance on product level and across the value chain. Data collection, aggregation, conversion, validations, and reporting save companies time, including faster time to disclosure because of a streamlined data collection process, disclosure management tools and workflows. Audit-proof reporting for relevant standards are delivered easily, and payback compared to an Excel-based approach usually takes less than a year, the company says.
