Stress Engineering Services, Inc. and RPS Develop Sustainability Scorecard

Sustainability ScorecardHOUSTON (April 20, 2020)Stress Engineering Services, Inc., (SES) the global leader in consulting engineering services and solutions, has developed a sustainability scorecard with RPS, a leading global professional services firm, to assess the emissions, carbon footprint and environmental impact of systems, sub-systems and facilities in the upstream, downstream and midstream sectors, in addition to manufacturing plants, power plants, wastewater systems and processing systems.

The sustainability scorecard is built upon SES’ competencies and track record in inspection, sensor technology, predictive modeling, system digital twin, data science and asset integrity monitoring. The development adds to the strength of SES’ present technology portfolio of service offering for asset condition-based maintenance and monitoring, predictive data analytics and IoT/IIoT ecosystem management. The sustainability scorecard will leverage RPS’ ComplianceMap application.

The enhanced level of services will vastly benefit those with a stake in identifying and managing risks and benchmarking their environmental impact, together with a commitment to decreasing emissions and their carbon footprint.

Kenneth Bhalla, chief technical officer, SES, said, “Our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) is unparalleled and our focus is to measurably quantify our clients’ institutional sustainability efforts and recommend strategies for proactively addressing relevant ESG risks and opportunities in the short, medium and long term. This service strengthens our product portfolio and capabilities in new and important areas. We are very excited to work with RPS to create an outstanding commercial client-focused ESG team that benefits all stakeholders and will ultimately reduce our clients’ operating costs.”

Dave Buchalter, vice president of compliance at RPS, commented, “We are proud of the prior working relationship enjoyed between our two companies and we will forge a successful ESG product offering for our clients, providing operational due diligence to manage their environmental issues and more importantly, costs. By combining these technologies with our professional services, we can now deliver measurable, practical and meaningful results to our clients, with the world class service and capability of both RPS and SES.”
