The State of Environmental Compliance Today

Today’s environmental compliance teams are inundated with challenges: regulations that constantly change, complex reporting requirements, decentralized data, and a mountain of paperwork that still needs to be done to finish compliance reports. It’s an endless cycle, particularly for enterprises that have distributed facilities across the U.S.

For environmental professionals tasked with maintaining compliance, it’s safe to say they’re more than a bit overwhelmed. Tracking what seems like an infinite amount of compliance details every day, across siloed data sources, feels like an impossible task. And if anything is overlooked, the threat is non-compliance. Which can mean financial penalties that continually escalate over time, reputational damage, or worse, an organization is forced to shut down — temporarily and even permanently.

Digital transformation technologies and practices bring a simplified method to the madness. As enterprises integrate digital technology into their compliance program areas, it empowers them to centralize information, make data more visible, build a continuous and auditable process, and ultimately gain central control over the entire compliance program.

Digital transformation requires an end-to-end mindset, a rethinking of ways to meet business needs, the seamless connection of work activities, and the ability to manage across silos going forward.
