Focus on Sustainability: How Sepasoft Drives Carbon Emissions Reductions

Discerning consumers and stakeholders are increasingly and rightfully concerned about the carbon footprint of the products they buy and the companies they invest in. Considering manufacturing accounts for 12% of global greenhouse gas emissions, any solution that can help reduce its share will have a significant positive impact.

Enter Sepasoft. Our Manufacturing Execution System (MES) solutions make sustainability a core feature of our business proposition by delivering efficiency gains to a wide range of manufacturing operations. In fact, every implementation we undertake has the potential to serve as a catalyst for environmental betterment.

Designed to improve key performance indicators (KPIs), such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Sepasoft empowers companies to optimize production processes, reduce waste, and ensure equipment peak performance. In that sense, our OEE-centric solutions do not just boost manufacturing efficiency but also provide a pathway to greener manufacturing.

Sepasoft’s Commitment to True Environmental Responsibility

Interestingly, the much-publicized scores for environmental, social and governance (ESG) that investors often use to assess a company’s commitment to sustainability do not reflect a company’s carbon intensity.

A new study found companies with high ESG scores pollute as much as lower rated rivals, even when researchers looked only at the environmental part of the metric. With the correlation between carbon intensity and ESG scores “close to zero,” an ESG vice president at a major corporation told the Financial Times, “ESG investment does not necessarily help an investor create a low-carbon portfolio.”

With Sepasoft’s MES, companies can drive an impactful carbon reduction strategy across several key areas:

Efficient Energy Consumption: Utility consumption represents a large portion of manufacturers’ carbon footprint. With Sepasoft, they can optimize machine performance, which translates into higher productivity with less energy. For instance, by analyzing the efficiency of various production cycles, companies can capitalize on opportunities to cut back on frequent and energy-intensive startup and shutdown cycles. The newfound insights enable some use cases to move from 24/7 production to 24/5.

Waste Minimization: Sepasoft provides insights into production quality, highlighting areas where defects and rework can be reduced. This reduction in waste, in turn, leads to lower resource consumption and, subsequently, decreased carbon emissions. Sepasoft’s electronic document management functionality allows approvals, travelers and other manufacturing documentation to stay within the system preventing the need of creating wasteful hardcopies.

Data-Centric Green Choices: The data generated and analyzed by Sepasoft’s platform allows environmentally-conscious companies to make decisions that help them meet their own sustainability goals. By identifying energy wastage or inefficiencies, targeted actions can be initiated to reduce carbon footprints.

Eco-Friendly Business Practices: Finally, our global reach doesn’t come at the environment’s expense. We prioritize online meetings and limit in-person interactions to only essential scenarios in order to minimize our transportation emissions and overall environmental impact.
