The Imperative for Change
A key challenge was our client's inability to obtain a unified view of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions data for their operations in 40+ countries. This data was scattered in several regional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), HSE and other operational systems.
There was also a general lack of analytical tools, which prevented our client from measuring their current state emissions and setting targets for decarbonization and energy efficiency goals. Business confidence in the quality of data was low and there were several siloed efforts to improve data quality.
As well as the need to improve the quality of data for better reporting among internal and external stakeholders, there was an urgent necessity for automating the lengthy process of loading, processing and publishing data.
