Atrion User Conference Highlights Need for Regulatory Compliance in PLM


The Atrion International User Group met in Montreal, Quebec (Canada) to discuss ways to improve regulatory compliance for their respective companies. At the conference, Atrion presented a vision and product strategy to their customers that will provide critical regulatory and compliance capabilities needed to support the product life cycle. The conference pointed out the importance of regulatory compliance as an important element of a product lifecycle management (PLM) strategy, and the role that environmental health and safety (EH&S) plays in protecting PLM value.

This buying trend has also spilled over into the private sector—including hotel chains, cruise Read More

TEC Lean and Green Manufacturing Buyer’s Guide


While the need for sustainable development is affecting how organizations do business, the idea of environmental and corporate responsibility as value drivers is still relatively new.

It also accounts for environmental harm that might occur during the distribution and use of the product. Lastly, LCA examines how the solid and Read More

Book review: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and the Environment: Business Imperatives. ed. Ruth Hillary, Greenleaf Publications. February 2000


The role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in society cannot be underestimated—indeed, many think SMEs are the most important sector of a nation’s economy due to their  creative and innovative abilities, as well as the flexibility they execute in order to survive in our competitive world.  Yet, as editor Ruth Hillary explains in the collection of essays in Small and Medium-sized

According to Hillary, roughly 70 % or all SMEs contribute to the total pollution coming from this sector, however, these numbers cannot be confirmed since most national economic statistics don’t carry this data. Because of this staggering number, greening SMEs is, without a doubt, a subject that has long been under-researched and deserves our immediate Read More

Using Management Software to Tackle Your Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Which Scope Are You Talking About?


“Clearly there will be winners and losers in the transition to a low-carbon economy, and investors should be concerned about companies who are not able to provide the information they require.” – Carbon Disclosure Project Global 500 Report 2008 (also known as CDP6) To today’s enterprises, greenhouse gas (GHG) emission—amongst various sustainability issues—is one of the highest priorities. Some

Duplicators and Inkjet Printers Provide Environmentally Friendly Alternatives to Toner-based Printers and Copiers


Environmental concerns are a focal point for businesses wanting to “go green,” and they are looking at every aspect of their operations, including their printers. Replacing even a portion of energy-inefficient printers with environmentally friendly ones will have a positive impact on the environment, helping to conserve energy and reduce waste. Saving energy is not only good for the planet; it’s also good for business.

E-invoicing: Ready for Prime Time


Of the 30 billion invoices sent and received in Europe every year, more than 90% are in paper format. This is not only labour intensive and error prone, but comes at both a financial and environmental cost. Such manual operations slow invoice reconciliation, leading to poor relationships with suppliers and buyers and, potentially, poor cash flow management. This paper discusses the challenges posed by inefficient manual invoice processes, the need for e-invoicing, and how an organization can focus on its core business by handing over invoice processing to a managed service provider.

Green Server Design: Beyond Operational Energy to Sustainability


“Green” server and datacenter design requires a focus on environmental sustainability. Prior studies have focused on operational energy consumption as a proxy for sustainability, but this metric only captures part of the environmental impact. Understanding the total impact requires examining the entire lifecycle of the system, beyond operational energy, to also include material use and manufacturing. See how one methodology can do that.
