Building mateisls provider Holcim US says the digital tool will be key to integrating its environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) objectives with its operational and frontline activities.

"Sustainability and environmental responsibility drive the way we operate across the Holcim US footprint and we work hard to meet these expectations," said Michael LeMonds, VP, environment, land and government affairs, Holcim US.

"Leveraging a digital tool that creates a cohesive, agile platform for our environmental teams and site management to access inspection data not only helps drive accountability, but ultimately regulatory compliance to support our local permits and ESG objectives."

Every Holcim site operates within permits granted by Federal and State environmental organisations' regulations for environmental emissions. Holcim says the Connected Worker technology enables it to capture, record and analyse environmental work data in near real time, ultimately decreasing compliance deviations and improving environmental performance.

Navin Vardya, Parsable chief customer officer, commented on the partnership with Holcim: "As a leader in the building materials industry in the US, their investments in technology, data analytics and ESG are truly industry leading. We are proud to be a partner in helping them achieve both their operational and sustainability goals."

The Connected Worker software features combination of a no-code platform and a mobile app. Users can collaboratively execute tasks using digital work instructions on mobile devices, analyse new information to identify operational trends, flag incomplete jobs or issues on the plant floor, and create reports to share insights locally and across sites.

The technology was rolled out to more than Holcim US 280 sites within the last six months, and will be expanded to the remaining sites by July 31, 2022.

"Our goal is to enhance our environmental compliance program and eliminate potential errors associated with lost or missing inspection data," said Jim Carroll, director, environment & land at Holcim US.

"By enabling our operators at our facilities to complete their daily tasks and capture information at every step of the way, we can streamline how data is recorded and reduce the time it takes to complete jobs, document inspections, and more."
