Audits for Sustainable Operations
As the importance of sustainability grows, more businesses are seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact and operate more efficiently. One way to achieve this is through water, energy, and waste audits, which help identify areas for improvement and cost savings.
At EPAS International, we offer comprehensive audits that analyse your organisation's use of water, energy, and waste, with a focus on identifying opportunities for increased efficiency and sustainability. Our audits are tailored to the unique needs of your organisation and can be conducted separately or combined for maximum impact.
Our water audit examines your organisation's water use patterns and identifies opportunities for conservation, reuse, and recycling. We evaluate your water supply, water usage, and wastewater output to determine areas for improvement. We'll also provide recommendations for upgrading fixtures and equipment to reduce water usage, as well as advice on ways to recycle and reuse wastewater.
Our energy audit evaluates your organisation's energy usage patterns and identifies opportunities for increased efficiency and cost savings. We analyse your energy bills, evaluate your equipment and systems, and identify areas for improvement. We'll also provide recommendations for renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, to reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources.
Our waste audit examines your organisation's waste management practices and identifies opportunities for reducing waste and increasing recycling. We analyse your waste stream, evaluate your current waste management system, and identify opportunities for waste reduction. We'll also provide recommendations for waste reduction strategies and recycling programs that align with your organisation's sustainability goals.
Our combined audit brings together a combination of these audits to provide a comprehensive analysis of your organisation's sustainability practices. By examining water, energy, and waste together, we can identify opportunities for cross-cutting improvements and develop a holistic sustainability strategy that maximises cost savings and environmental benefits.
In an nutshell, we truly believe that sustainable operations are not only good for the environment but also for your bottom line. Our water, energy, and waste audits help industrials identify cost-saving opportunities, reduce their environmental impact, and achieve their sustainability goals. Contact us today to schedule an audit and take the first step towards a more sustainable future.
R&D: Innovation for Sustainable Resource Management
Aside from working on projects for clients, EPAS International also invests significant time in R&D. Why? Because we strive to keep finding new and better ways to support the industry in their endeavour to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
We frequently run pilot studies, from scaled tests in our own laboratory to full-scale tests on site, and make use of new technology to better capture and interpret the data we acquire. But our group doesn't stop there. Veolia has developed several modules and programs to better assess clients' situations.
One of Veolia's key research and development projects is the DMISS® (Digital Management & Information Systems for Sustainability) tool. This tool is designed to help businesses and organisations measure, monitor, and manage their environmental impacts and sustainability performance. DMISS® allows for data-driven decision-making and helps industrials improve their sustainability performance by identifying opportunities for improvement.
Another noteworthy tool is the Veolia Group's Screen Tool®. The Screen Tool® methodology is a precise and organised approach to evaluating water usage, and is tailored to your industry's specific needs. By analysing your water cycle, we can provide alternatives to improve key indicators and reduce your environmental footprint. The module includes a 360° assessment of your production site, allowing us to identify opportunities to improve performance, reduce costs, ensure compliance with local regulations, and enhance your brand image. We achieve short, medium, and long-term improvements while reducing your operating costs and improving effluent quality standards. We also project the preliminary CAPEX and the payback period compared to the current operating costs, so clients and partners can see the economic savings for their production site.
There are so many things that may seem impossible [...], but when we focus all our energy on a single goal, we are able to achieve extraordinary things.
