SAS Sustainability Management Scorecard

The SAS Scorecard provides a view of environmental impact goals that include use of raw materials, and conservation of utilities like electricity, fuel and water.

The software, which SAS claims is the first of its kind from any vendor in the world, applies SAS’ expertise in ­reducing the cost of daily ­operations and applies it to the reduction of an organisation’s environmental i­mpact.

Scorecard provides a ­“dashboard” view of metrics chosen by the company to reflect its environmental impact goals, which include reduced usage of raw materials, and conservation of utilities like electricity, fuel and water. This is essentially the same view SAS provides of corporate performance metrics in its other software offerings.

Supply Chain to Major Corporations

Smaller businesses that supply goods and services to large corporations could still benefit from ­implementing Scorecard as well, particularly as they are still affected by the latter’s green policies.

“Many if not most suppliers to large international retailers, like Wal-Mart, are small ­companies and because of their corporate social responsibility policies they need to know how green their suppliers are,” said SAS senior director for ­international programs Thomas Spiller.

“We don’t look at the Sustainability Scorecard as something to make a profit from. It’s something that can help a company fulfil its social responsibility objectives,” he added.

The SAS Scorecard can be provided on a software-as-a-service basis if a company does not have the resources for a full inhouse deployment. In the public sector, it can be deployed at the agency or ministry level.

You can:

  • Calculate the value of intangible assets like employee morale and technology and correlate those measures with tangible information from across your enterprise.
  • Provide strategic value in all of the Balanced Scorecard perspectives – Financial, Customer, Process and People – linking corporate data together in ways that produce better information and decisions.
  • Identify the root causes of potential problems well in advance – allowing you time to consider and plan strategic actions to ensure ongoing success.
  • Support quality standards like Six Sigma, Baldrige, TQM and EFQM that run alongside your scorecard.
