Sustainability and the Environment

Are you impacting the environmental with disposed assets ending-up in landfill?
Sustainable Asset Management Solutions

Global climate change is causing a reshaping of business practices. Most organisations want to do good and make real change. But, some focus on oversight and other commitments. Regardless of the driving force, balancing sustainability (green) and profitability (gold) is crucial. Any organisation’s performance depends on its ability to meet Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) objectives. Investors use these objectives to evaluate possible investments for risk. While companies use it to demonstrate to staff and clients that they are concerned about the environment and society.


Asset Management Practices And Sustainable Asset Management

The concept of sustainability plays an important role in Enterprise Asset Management (EAM). Organisations will create more value over the long run if they take into consideration environmental, social, and economic issues. Sustainability performance is one of the most influential concepts for managing modern organisations. Adopting a sustainability-oriented holistic view to the area of assets is essential for successful business operations.


Circular Economy Approach To Fit-out Design, Construction And De-Fit

Repair, re-use/redeployment, return/takeback, sale, donation, recycling and remanufacture of assets and equipment reduces waste and conserves resources. Lowering carbon emissions and contributing to a circular economy. Our partner FTD Circular along with our Hardcat Lebosi digital platform provides a user-friendly solution to asset management data visibility and value extraction when it comes to fit-out spaces and materials. Positions places and spaces as valuable asset banks, rather than as receptacles of finishes, fixtures/fittings, furniture, plant and equipment destined for landfill.


The circular economy approach process starts with a site audit to review the fixtures, furnishings and materials that need to be placed on the Hardcat asset register. The Hardcat team provides the mobile hardware, digital tools and support needed to accurately capture the asset identities, quantities and other data. From here client organisations and suppliers are able to track and manage their asset maintenance, life cycles, warranties, depreciation and deployment. This allows for asset lifecycles to be extended.


At de-fit time the asset management platform and directory are used to match assets with landfill diversion opportunities such as re-use, sale, donation and recycling. Once diversion is completed this platform allows for detailed reporting to measure your impact and satisfy your waste and carbon reporting commitments with verified data. This data can also be used to inform government policy and initiatives.


Preventive Maintenance Contributes To Sustainable Asset Management

Preventive maintenance provides not only an optimal return on your investment but may contribute to sustainability and cost savings by addressing maintenance early and avoiding more expensive and energy-intensive repairs later on.


Optimised Resource Utilisation

By identifying underutilised equipment, businesses can eliminate unnecessary purchases and reduce resource consumption, thereby lowering their environmental footprint.


Energy Conservation

Monitor energy consumption patterns of assets and equipment. With this data, organisations can identify opportunities for energy efficiency improvements, such as implementing energy-saving settings, optimising usage schedules, or upgrading to more energy-efficient assets. By reducing energy consumption, businesses can decrease their greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to combating climate change.


Asset Longevity

Extending the lifespan of assets and equipment with regular preventive maintenance not only ensures optimal performance but also minimises the need for premature replacements or repairs. By keeping assets in good condition, organisations reduce waste generation and the environmental impact associated with manufacturing and disposing of new equipment.


Waste Reduction and Recycling

Responsibly managing end-of-life assets and promoting recycling initiatives, businesses can reduce waste generation and divert materials from landfills. Additionally, EAM software helps organisations identify opportunities for refurbishment or repurposing of assets, further minimising waste and resource depletion.
