Our Environmental Management System provides a framework to manage and optimize bidding and tendering processes for contractors and suppliers
The construction sector is responsible for approximately 20% of global CO2 emissions. This implies that the sector has a great potential to make an impact. Relatively small efforts can have a strong effect. Public contracting authorities have recognized this and are raising the bar with environmental regulations to stimulate the sector, which generally impacts civil engineering and infrastructure projects first.
Integrated Environmental Intelligence can help the construction sector to maximize sustainable returns
Environmental Intelligence supports contractors and suppliers to gain insight into the hotspots of their value chain and collaborate more effectively with value chain partners to improve their green biddings and the overall design of sustainable infrastructure projects.
Construction material suppliers benefit from readily available product footprint information (LCAs and EPDs)
For material suppliers, it is increasingly important to have product footprint information readily available to help contractors to develop a winning bidding. Environmental Intelligence enables you to calculate the LCAs and EPDs of your complete product portfolio efficiently, and inform contractors (proactively) about the environmental performance of your products. This builds your competitive advantage as a go-to provider of sustainable materials.
It will also help you to identify environmental hotspots in your portfolio and apply product structure modeling to optimize your Bills of Materials. For example, concrete and asphalt producers use Environmental Intelligence to experiment with different mix designs to find their greenest mix.
Civil design contractors benefit from insights in supply chain hotspots
For contractors, the environmental performance of a project design is becoming a determining factor to create a winning tender.
Integrated Environmental Intelligence empowers you with a complete oversight and insight into the sustainability performance of your suppliers and enables you to fine-tune the most favorable price-sustainability ratio. This helps to optimize and speed up the bidding processes significantly.
Build a competitive advantage together
Environmental Intelligence enables the construction sector to manage and share integrated environmental information with value chain partners.
This allows material suppliers and contractors to collaborate effectively and increase the sustainability of their projects. Together, they can create winning tender bids with innovative sustainability solutions.
