Environmental information management system
Suncor’s Environmental Information Management System (EIMS) is an enterprise-wide system to store, analyze and report environmental data to support regulatory and sustainability reporting requirements at a regional and corporate level. The EIMS supports the requirements of Suncor’s Operational Excellence Management System for data, documentation and information management.
The EIMS brings discipline to the management of Suncor’s environmental data through standardized business processes and tools and effective governance controls and sustainment processes. It enables us to better analyze and understand our environmental data, which supports continuous improvement in emissions reduction and forecasting. The system’s flexibility also allows us to be nimble in addressing new and changing regulatory reporting requirements.
Implementation of the EIMS across the business has been a multi-year project and the goal is to have air emissions, greenhouse gas emissions and water data for all company-operated facilities in the system by the end of 2013. Waste data is being assessed for potential inclusion in the system, transforming it into the company’s definitive source for all environmental data.
