If you’re a part of the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) industry or rely on technology for environmental compliance and EPCRA Tier II reporting, we’d like to think you’ve heard of Encamp by now. But to fill you in, we’re all about environmental compliance innovation. We introduced a first of its kind end to end software platform for compliance and reporting in 2018, and it’s created a buzz ever since. 

Now, we’re turning the buzz way up. 

We’re thrilled to announce Encamp has raised $12 million in Series B funding led by OpenView. The funding was supported with participation from Encamp investors High Alpha Capital, Allos Ventures, and IU Ventures, who participated in an earlier funding round in April 2020 (co-led by HA and Allos). The investment will be used to fuel our SaaS-based platform’s ongoing environmental compliance innovation and add resources in engineering, compliance, sales, and other areas. Naturally, the new funding is great news for Encamp and our future. But it’s even better news for our industry and every environmental compliance specialist who wants a solution that makes their job easier. 

Here’s why.

OpenView is respected for helping fast-growing software companies hit their potential with what it terms “product led growth” in the “end user era.” Put simply, purchasing decisions should focus on end users. Instead of “How will this product help the business’ bottom line?,” the primary decision-making criteria is always “How will this product help someone in their day-to-day?” 

Which brings us to a day in the life of an environmental compliance professional — our software’s main end users — and why we created the Encamp platform in the first place. (Read about our journey to see how it all began on a camping trip.) 

If you have to deal with environmental compliance every day and issues like Tier II reporting every year, we know what you’re up against. Most of us at Encamp come from environmental compliance backgrounds, and we always asked the same question you do.

“Why are we using spreadsheets to manage all this information and file compliance reports?”

In 2017 when we first envisioned Encamp, we knew software and digital innovation had been making businesses more efficient for a long time. The digital transformation was well underway and proving its value.

So our thinking was, why not environmental compliance innovation? Let’s bring the same forward thinking to compliance by making data as accessible as possible and automating how information is compiled and reported. 

Our three-stage mission

Encamp’s mission was — and still is — to make managing compliance data and reporting faster, easier, and more accurate for every regulated facility, for all 50 states. That meant breaking down our mission’s approach into three stages to tackle the fundamental problem the EHS industry had faced for decades.

  1. Understand all regulations and their applicability — i.e., know what, where, when, why and how to report environmental compliance information.
  2. Solve the data management and reporting problem with software that makes us your go-to portal for compliance data and efficiency.
  3. Become the premier data source for environmental compliance.

An end-to-end environmental platform

As a source for critical environmental compliance information, we developed our software platform to combine a powerful data management system and compliance reporting automation. As an end user, you get features that simplify the entire compliance and reporting process.

Encamp is also deployed via the cloud, which lets you implement Encamp in a matter of days (or a couple weeks) and ramp up compliance operations rapidly. By comparison for data management point systems and legacy Environmental Management Information Systems (EMIS) hardware, implementation can take months if not years, especially for EMIS products that require some serious configuration. Rapid deployment is part of our environmental compliance innovation approach.

An efficient option for end users

If you’re an environmental compliance professional at any level, Encamp gives you a modern software option that makes spreadsheets, point systems, and EMIS products seem archaic. Unlike the single Encamp platform, these solutions are often disjointed and inefficient. They create data silos and do a poor job of connecting and tracking data streams, let alone compliance operations. And quite frankly, they’re no fun to use. 

Innovation never stops

When we launched the initial version of Encamp’s software platform publicly in 2018, it made us trailblazers in environmental compliance innovation rather quickly. By 2019, our software had drawn more than 100 customers and made Encamp the largest filer of EPCRA Tier II hazardous material inventory reports in the United States. 

But there’s also a saying that innovation never stops. In Encamp’s case, upgrades to our platform are both inevitable and constant.

For instance, we recently increased onboarding for larger enterprises and their EHS operations. For all facilities in your organization, we put a broader range of state and federal regulatory requirements information at your fingertips through our platform’s integration with EPA databases. New integrated mapping also puts all your facilities in a single view. We additionally enhanced our platform’s facility-based profiles, compliance calendar, and fillable forms for reporting to make the compliance process easier.

 Yet even with ongoing improvements to the Encamp platform, we’ll never lose sight of why we created it. 

Now, we need to keep looking ahead and take another step.

While Encamp started out to become the premier data source and system of record for environmental compliance and reporting, the industry’s dynamic is shifting. The new outlook for environmental compliance innovation are systems of intelligence for regulatory rules and data, and technology must set the new course to delivering them. 

The Encamp platform has already set that course. And now our product roadmap, the support of our investors, and ongoing guidance from OpenView will let us transform environmental compliance yet again — this time as the premier environmental compliance system of intelligence. 

We also know the incredible minds at OpenView will help bring Encamp closer to achieving our original mission: To ensure environmental compliance in every regulated facility in the U.S. We’re excited that OpenView is on this journey with us.      

Even in Encamp’s short history, there’s a reason we’re viewed as trailblazers of environmental compliance. For every environmental compliance specialist in the EHS industry, we’re ready to make compliance and reporting faster, easier, more accurate — and more intelligent — than we already have.

Stay tuned.

Adventurous EHS careers at Encamp

Companies throughout the Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) industry offer great EHS careers. Some EHS firms even consider themselves “trailblazers.” 

But not every company is reinventing the way businesses comply with environmental regulations. Nor have any of them created a first of its kind platform to do it. And not every solution is changing the environmental compliance landscape like the Encamp platform.

When it comes to trailblazers, Encamp really is setting a new course. So if you’re looking to blaze a new trail, our EHS careers path is where you come in.

Who we are

At Encamp, we’re a diverse and quickly growing team of difference makers. We’re also nature lovers and technology geeks. We call ourselves Encampers, and we’re passionate about protecting the environment though innovation.

For many of us, in fact, Encamp is an extension of our own EHS careers. In our previous compliance lives, we were environmental scientists, EHS managers, and consultants. Now, we’ve merged our EHS expertise with topnotch software engineers and business minds. We’ve also built some great teams of sales & marketing gurus and customer success specialists.

Where do you see yourself fitting in?

“I work with some incredible people at Encamp! I’ve never felt more empowered.”

Lesley Jones, CHMM, Senior Environmental Scientist

Why we started

If there’s anything to know about regulations and compliance in the EHS sector, it’s this. Red tape, paperwork, and reporting can be relentless. So we developed our digital platform to make data more visible and easier to manage. Companies also better understand environmental regulations, and fully automate reporting to ensure compliance. 

Translated, Encamp has completely changed the way environmental compliance works. We’ve made the entire process faster, easier, and more accurate. And we’ve done it with a perfect mix of expertise and ingenuity.

“I love working with smart, friendly people to solve real world problems.”

Ben Jacobs, VP of Engineering

Our culture

The Encamp culture is all about autonomy, transparency, and teamwork. It promotes ownership and action, and ensures that everyone always has a voice. Individually and collectively, Encampers are constantly encouraged to put their knowledge and creativity to use. After all, it’s the best way to tackle challenges head-on. 

But we’re not all work and no fun. We have virtual happy hours, gaming lunches, and holiday parties. Every Friday afternoon, we celebrate wins and accomplishments. We also have all-hands meetings to spread company news, and Zoom chats to talk about anything but work.

“I know I’m surrounded by the best. As far as EHS careers, I know I’ll be appropriately challenged to grow with this company and my own career!”

Owen Smith, Account Executive

Diversity, equality, and inclusion

Encamp encourages and celebrates different voices and backgrounds as well as experiences. As an equal opportunity employer, we value diversity and inclusion, and view everyone equally.

Therefore, we don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, or national origin. Neither do we discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, age, or marital, veteran, or disability status. This way, Encampers bring their full, authentic selves to work every day.

We make EHS careers inviting

A market projected to hit $85 billion in spending by 2027. A platform solution that’s still transforming the EHS industry. Encamp is growing rapidly, and our EHS careers path keeps expanding.

If you’re skilled in Engineering, Compliance, Customer Success, Sales, or Marketing, blaze our trail with us. 

Keep an eye on our Culture & Careers page for openings. 

Tier II deadlines aren’t on the radar just yet, but they’re coming. And trust us, we empathize. Many of the people at Encamp come from EHS consulting backgrounds, so we’ve done hundreds of reports ourselves — mostly using spreadsheets like everyone else.

That’s why our mission is to simplify Tier II and EPCRA reporting and make your life easier. Watch one of the live webinars for our compliance platform and you’ll see what we mean. But our mission is also to never stop improving on what we’ve done thus far.

So… here’s a sneak peek of some of the platform improvements we’re rolling out for Tier II season.

Today’s topic: Spreadsheets, and Excel in particular. See if this sounds familiar.

Let’s look at how importing and exporting Excel files on our platform makes for an easier reporting process.

Start with a unified way to manage all Tier II reports

Make Excel your friend

Track your reporting status

That’s it for now. You can also take a quick guided video tour of Encamp’s enhanced Tier II Dashboard. (I’m your tour guide.)

As we say, our compliance management platform was created by EHS professionals for EHS professionals. You know, to make your Tier II life easier.

Welcome to another EHS Moment from Encamp…

This time I want to talk about two things that don’t even seem to fit in the same sentence: My interest in shoes, and my interest in the environment and sustainability. Because what do shoes have to do with the environment, right?

The answer is, thanks to Nike, shoes now have everything to do with the environment and sustainability.

Earlier this summer Nike released its new Space Hippie shoe collection (the new line dropped in July), and they’re reported to be their lowest carbon footprint shoe ever made. Space Hippies consist mostly of recycled material — yes, they’re literally made of trash! — and Nike offers four models to choose from. (My favorite is the Space Hippie 01, which provides the traditional lace-up with the one-of-a-kind Nike Crater Foam outsoles.)

With Nike leading the way, shoe companies’ efforts towards waste-free carbon neutrality and keeping sustainability at the top of mind is a huge step. Nike says as much in promoting their new shoes and the approach they’re taking to producing them.

“Space Hippie,” as Nike puts it, “is the result of sustainable practices meeting radical design.”

When you take a closer look at Space Hippies, the material the shoes are made of stands out. Overall, the fabric is 85% to 90% recycled, with 50% of that coming from plastic bottles and other plastic waste. Along with recycled plastics, 25% of the shoes’ material consists of old consumer goods, like t-shirts. The remaining material is a mix of Nike yarn or other leftover materials in their factories.

So that’s how you have the upper half of Space Hippies. On the bottom half, their cushion sole is made of Nike Zoom X foam, or what Nike calls crater foam, of which 15% is made from grain rubber. That’s where you get the Nike proprietary mix and little flecks and specks inside the foam, which really stands out stylistically. As a shoe enthusiast, I think the new Space Hippies are really good-looking shoes.

Yet while making shoes from recycled materials is a positive step for Nike and the environment, it isn’t necessarily a new concept for the global shoe and sportswear maker. To date, Nike has already been recognized for diverting roughly 1 billion plastic bottles from landfills to be recycled for greater sustainable good.

Beyond Nike, other shoe companies are also now escalating their efforts toward waste-free carbon neutrality and sustainability in the materials they use. On that list: Saolo, Indosole, Timberland, North Face, MOVMT, and Nike competitors adidas and Converse, among others. It’s a move in the right direction both for our environment and for the business world itself.

These efforts also reinforce what we always say at Encamp: What’s good for business is good for the environment.

Today I want to talk about a company that is quickly becoming one of my favorites — and not just for the items they make. The company is Diageo, and for the record they’re the spirit company that produces Johnny Walker, Guinness, and Smirnoff.

Now, making scotch, ale and vodka is all well and good. But environmentally, what Diageo does is they always keep sustainability top of mind in almost everything they do. The company is known for their industry leading environmental goals and achievements as much as they are for the spirits they sell.

This year, in fact, Diageo announced they’ve achieved most of their sustainability goals that they set back in 2008. They’ve cut their greenhouse gas emissions in half across its direct operations, improved its water efficiency by 46%, and achieved zero waste to landfill at all production sites and offices.

So kudos to Diageo.

The first 100% plastic free paper-based bottle

A few months ago, the company also announced they’ve created their first 100% plastic free bottle made of paper products.

Ok, ok, I know what you’re thinking. We’ve all used paper straws, and not all of us are fans of paper straws. As you drink more, they tend to break down. I hear you.

But by a paper bottle, I mean paper based. Diageo’s new bottle will be made entirely from sustainably sourced wood to meet food-safe standards and will be fully recyclable in standard waste streams. It will debut with Johnny Walker in early 2021.

Likewise, this new bottle will allow other brands to rethink their packaging designs and go plastic free. Safe to say, Diageo is pushing sustainability and environmental innovation — which is what we all want.

Look for more of our daily EHS Moment videos on your favorite social channel. And please, give them a like or leave a comment. You can also watch the entire video series on the Encamp YouTube page.

Remember, what’s good for business is good for the environment.

We call it Better for You, Better for Nature. PR campaign? Nah. Encamp is just doing its part to help replenish the environment by planting trees.

And while it’s only one tree at a time, our count is already closing in on 3,300 new saplings. (Most likely more after this is posted. See the counter at the end of our Home page.)

Here’s how it works, and why we’re doing it.

The gist is, for every Tier II report that gets filed through our system for EHS compliance, Encamp makes a donation to have a tree planted somewhere in the 50 states. So first, thank you to every one of our customers who file a Tier II report from those states. Please keep them coming.

The next big thanks go to our friends at One Tree Planted, who do all the critical work. They grow new saplings, plant them, maintain them, and then tell how these new trees are benefitting our planet.

Quick fact from One Tree’s site: Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. They also absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Trees even provide jobs to more than 1.6 billion people around the world.

About One Tree Planted itself, they’re an environmental charity “dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment.” Their mission is to let companies like Encamp help create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and aid reforestation efforts around the world. “All by planting trees!”

“We’ve been committed to aligning our business goals with environmental goals at Encamp from the very beginning,” said Luke Jacobs, Encamp’s co-founder and CEO. “Even before we had paying customers, we were committed to the idea of planting a tree for every Tier II report we file.”

This allows Encamp to cut down on paper costs, Jacobs explained, both by digitizing paper-based processes for its customers and by going the extra mile to get more trees planted across the country.

“Our mission at Encamp aligns well with the goals of One Tree Planted, and we’re excited to keep striving towards a world where good for business can equal good for the environment.

One Tree Planted started in 2014 and planted 150,000 trees its first full year. In 2019, they were able to get 4 million more trees in the ground worldwide.

One tree at a time, we’re proud to be contributing to that number.

Where do we even start? COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic are still running rampant. Masks and plastic gloves and face shields have become staples of our daily wardrobe. And safe to say, most people now know as much about Personal Protective Equipment — PPE — as any medical professional ever has.

Right now, until a proven vaccine gets here for COVID-19, PPE is our best protection. You know, wash your hands, distance… wear a mask. But the coronavirus and PPE are also converging on a different path. And the environment is suffering because of it.

Some numbers:

Earlier this year, the World Health Organization projected the global production of PPE supplies would need to increase by 40% every month to keep pace with the pandemic. Translated, that means 89 million new masks, 76 million pairs of gloves and 1.6 million pairs of goggles. Every. Month.

Consultants at Frost & Sullivan additionally predicted the US alone could generate an entire year’s worth of medical waste in just two months. Credit the pandemic again.

Yet governments at the international, national, state and local level are still trying to decide where these millions of products will end up after they’re disposed of.

Not a new problem

Although COVID-19 has intensified the PPE issue, disposing of plastics in general was a problem long before the pandemic.

“PPE is just the tip of a mountain of toxic plastic waste that we’ve been ignoring for years,” said Sian Sutherland, co-founder of A Plastic Planet. A 2020 study co-authored by the not-for-profit group along with the sustainability firm, SystemIQ, backs him up, and it cites the ocean as taking the brunt.

The study forecasts that, by 2040, 29 million tons of plastic will find its way into oceans worldwide every year if governments and industry don’t take immediate and significant action. That annual rate would be nearly triple of what it is now.

“A new breed of single-use plastic”

“PPE is a whole new breed of single-use plastic that we didn’t have even in January,” said Claire Potter, a marine plastic expert in the United Kingdom. “We’re now seeing it being washed up onto the beaches — it’s coming in, we’re also seeing it left on the beaches as well.”

For PPE itself, the underlying culprits are that most of these supplies are used only once and often contain various types of plastics. (Prior to the 1980s, most all PPE was reusable.) These plastics can range from polypropylene and polyethylene in face masks and gowns to nitrile, vinyl and latex in protective gloves.

In many western countries, at least, companies have long incinerated hazardous medical waste like PPE on site to prevent the transmission of infectious disease. “Other than burning it, there is nothing really we can do,” said Sander Defruyt, head of the plastics team at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. “It’s designed to be waste.”

So now, add millions of citizens to the thousands of medical staff who must wear single-use protective equipment to guard against COVID-19, and PPE is everywhere. And if it isn’t being incinerated, it’s showing up in conventional waste streams or being dumped in the open air.

“If it’s on your streets, it’s going to the ocean because it’s one rainfall away from getting into a storm water system, and then being carried into a river and into the ocean,” warned Mark Benfield, a zooplankton ecologist and professor at Louisiana State University.

Or as a recent WWF report puts it, even if only 1% of PPE masks are disposed of incorrectly, some 10 million of them could infiltrate the natural environment each month — polluting rivers, waterways and oceans around the world.

What the regulatory agencies recommend for PPE

To properly dispose of used PPE “with potential or known COVID-19 contamination,” recently updated OSHA guidelines advise waste disposal workers to handle office and home solid waste just as they would any other non-contaminated municipal waste.

Typically, OSHA says, managing such waste “does not require special precautions beyond those already used to protect workers from the hazards they encounter during their routine job tasks in solid waste and wastewater management.”

Guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) says employees should place their used PPE in a bag, seal the bag tightly, and place it in a sturdier garbage bag for pick up.

A medical setting is much different and far more regulated, however. In this case, the CDC and OSHA do not consider COVID-19-contaminated material to be a Category A infectious substance. Such material is still managed as regulated “medical waste.”

The general guidance OSHA uses for medical waste is if the person or item is “known or suspected” to be hazardous. This especially applies to single-use PPE. As OSHA says, it is the generator’s responsibility to determine if a waste is known or suspected to be hazardous and, in the event of COVID-19, infectious.

In industrial settings, under most circumstances PPE waste is not considered regulated medical (infectious) waste and can be treated as solid waste. According to the CDC and the WHO, waste materials that are not assumed to be contaminated do not require any special precautions. and can be managed as they typically would for the flu.

Waste that is indeed suspected or known to be contaminated with COVID-19 should be managed in accordance with standard CDC and OSHA procedures and handled like other regulated medical waste.

What now?

So what does this collision course of COVID-19, PPE and the environment mean for the EHS industry? Aside from a new type of waste to worry about, expect new regulations and PPE disposal programs to be developed on a continuing basis.

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) in the UK, for instance, recently issued new guidance on the PPE topic. Among multiple issues in their document, Defra addresses the benefits of reusable face masks, how best to dispose of PPE if you own a small business, and cleaning up waste in non-healthcare settings.

In Las Vegas, the Venetian Resort has partnered with TerraCycle to create a face mask recycling program. And at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, researchers have designed a new type of reusable face mask that can be easily sterilized and washed.

This is interesting, too. Beyond PPE, researchers at EPA and the CDC are developing (and already applying) methods for measuring SARS-CoV-2 levels in wastewater. SARS-CoV-2 is the strain behind COVID-19. Public health officials will be able to use these methods to determine infectivity, persistence, and treatment efficacies related to SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater in their communities.

Thus far, preliminary findings from the two agencies show that monitoring wastewater for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 can be a sensitive early indicator of low levels of COVID-19 infections. At the same time, such monitoring in wastewater could also signal decreasing levels of infection within a community.

Until the coronavirus pandemic subsides, EHS practices will be just as critical as the efforts to discover new ways to treat and prevent COVID-19.

Meantime, wash your hands, distance, wear a mask… and dispose of it wisely when the time comes.
