The CDP disclosure process, which took Saiia months in their previous disclosure to gather information and typically involves hours of manual data entry and processing, was streamlined. With Ecolytics' support, Saiia prepared their CDP submission into a matter of weeks, reducing resource-intensive efforts and associated regulatory compliance costs.
With the data collected by Ecolytics, Saiia also has been able to respond to requests for sustainability compliance from Dominion Energy, EcoVadis, TSSP and more.
By adopting Ecolytics, Saiia Construction transformed its approach to sustainability reporting, becoming more competitive in the process. The company estimated a potential for $2-3 million in additional revenue, as the tool enabled them to pursue new opportunities and meet the evolving demands of environmentally conscious clients. This marked a crucial milestone in Saiia Construction's financial growth and sustainability commitment.
Recognizing the impending shift towards penalizing non-compliance, Saiia Construction strategically positioned itself for the future. Ecolytics' project management expertise and back-office IT relationships facilitated quick integration and analysis of climate impacts, ensuring seamless compliance with current requirements. This milestone not only safeguarded existing client relationships but also paved the way for sustained growth by aligning with upcoming standards.
Saiia has continued to use Ecolytics’ sustainability management software beyond submitting their climate change disclosure to CDP due to the versatility the Ecolytics platform offers for comprehensive ESG measurement, improvement, and reporting. With Ecolytics now integrated into their existing tech stack, Saiia has fully automated their carbon accounting and environmental tracking needs.
Saiia's partnership with Ecolytics not only addressed immediate challenges but also positioned the company as a leader in sustainable construction. The case study showcases the transformative impact of Ecolytics in terms of time efficiency, revenue generation, and future-proofing compliance, making it a valuable investment for companies navigating the dynamic landscape of sustainability and climate reporting.
