About 20 years ago, we decided to make an easier way for enterprises to reach 100% EHS compliance— simply by using our environmental management software to improve their organizations.

Before anyone was talking about “the cloud” or “Software as a Service” (SaaS), we were building cloud applications to manage the overwhelming amount of environmental and EHS compliance data generated by our customers’ responses to environmental regulations.

Locus was born out of a vision for our first product, Locus EIM (Environmental Information Management). We knew that developing the solution for delivery via the Internet was the best and smartest technical approach.

Since then, we’ve maintained our pioneering attitude, even as we have become a leading provider of enterprise cloud computing software (SaaS) for environmental, air, water, energy, and sustainability information management.

And as the only major EHS compliance and sustainability management software provider headquartered in Silicon Valley, we are constantly learning from our peers in technology and software development to stay on the cutting edge in cloud software.

Environmental information and EHS compliance software— all in the cloud.

Our web-based technologies are used worldwide to help some of the world’s largest companies and organizations:

  • Reduce environmental liability
  • Lower energy consumption and carbon emissions
  • Comply with environmental regulations and automating regulatory reporting
  • Verify greenhouse gas emissions
  • Calculate sustainability indicators

Our customers have the best ideas.

One of the major ways that we stay up-to-date with the changing landscape of environmental management is by building personal relationships with our customers— Directors of EHS, Data Managers, Sustainability Programs Officers, and CEOs— who face the responsibility of organizing and analyzing environmental data for all sorts of industries.

From local water utilities to multinational manufacturing corporations to federal government research agencies, we know about the environmental data and compliance management challenges that are shared across most organizations, as well as what tends to be unique for every company or agency.

The ideas, feedback, and inspiration we receive from our customers have made our EHS software great.  We love listening to our actual users to identify more intuitive solutions and new ways to improve our products and our service.  When we hear the word “workaround,” we snap to attention and ask “what would be a better way?”

Gartner believes clients are best served by integrated approaches to EH&S needs, but for companies pursuing a best-of-breed architecture and looking for only environmental software, Locus Technologies’ blue-chip customer base attests to its value.
