  3. 3. 3 Breakfast with Greenlight Goals: WOW! Be impressed with the Greenlight System technology and approach. TRUST. Have confidence in Emilcott’s EHS experience and knowhow. USE THE POWER. Understand opportunities to effectively use integrated data to improve the performance of remedial activities. FIND OPPORTUNITY. Identify projects and opportunities for deployment.
  4. 4. 4 BACKGROUND: Experts in EHS Emilcott: Core Business is EHS • 24 years experience assessing, monitoring, training and advising • Field-experienced, EHS-certified staff • Understand both project and regulatory needs Greenlight System: Designed by EHS Experts • 5 years field-tested experience delivering automated air monitoring solutions • Significant investment in product development – realizing the “Perfect System” • Innovative use of measurement, communication and data-handling technology • Follows standard EHS protocols to monitor, display, notify and record Benefits: Increased Performance at Reduced Cost • Reduce project downtime while maintaining regulatory compliance • Modular system design meets specific project/site needs • Flexible staffing options optimize personnel usage
  5. 5. 5 Air Monitoring – Goals of Current Systems 1. Basic Compliance – Meet regulatory requirements – Meet project requirements 2. Risk Management – Provide “alarms” for exceedences – Provide data to defend claims - exposure 3. Community Relations – Provide visible sampling system – Provide reports, public website Minimalist Approach
  6. 6. 6 Environmental Monitoring: Data Needs Today 1. Beyond Compliance – Best Practices 2. Proven Risk Management – Formidable Defense 3. Sophisticated Community Relations – Visual and Friendly 4. Seamless Data Integration – ERP (IT) Compatibility 5. Focused Data Distribution – Multiple Information Portals 6. Data Quality and Reliability – Nothing Compromised 7. Excellent Cost Control & Cost Effectiveness – Less Labor 8. Provide Leadership – Promotes Sustainability Goals
