Implementation of integrated environmental information systems

This report presents the most important results from the IMPRESS project, running between September 2004 and September 2006. IMPRESS was financed by CPM, the Center for Environmental Assessment of Product and Material Systems at Chalmers University of Technology and was performed by the Chalmers research group Industrial Environmental Informatics (IMI) and representatives from ABB, Akzo Nobel, Bombardier Transportation, IKEA, ITT Flygt, SCA and Stora Enso. IMPRESS is an acronym for Implementation of Integrated Environmental Information Systems.

In IMPRESS it has been shown how information, methods and tools that supports environmentally related decisions within the industry can be integrated with each other and with the corporate business processes and also how the integration can be implemented into the organisations. The work has been based on existing methods and tools, used in the CPM companies today.
