Implementation of the Enviance system will be conducted by CH2M Hill, a global leader in full-service engineering, consulting, construction and operations.

“Given the highly specific environmental requirements imposed on the coal mining industry, we needed a system that could integrate, centralize and measure complex coal-based compliance mandates,” said David Hartley, vice president and COO, Arch Coal. “Enviance’s cloud-based management system will deploy rapidly and scale within our infrastructure as we look to further enhance our environmental management capabilities. This scalable system represents another key element in our ongoing effort to fully standardize environmental reporting and compliance.”  

Arch Coal selected Enviance because of the company’s proven track record in supporting specific coal mining environmental requirements within the industry. Based in St. Louis, Arch Coal has leading positions in all three major low-sulfur coal basins, with operations in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia. The company’s core business is providing U.S. power generators with coal for electric generation. The company also ships coal to domestic and international steel manufacturers as well as international power producers.  

“We are pleased to partner with Enviance to deploy their enterprise solution as the cloud technology platform to complement CH2M Hill’s global, best practice implementation services,” said Wade Carter, business development leader, EHS Information Management services at CH2M Hill.

“Arch Coal is continually recognized for its investment in innovation and environmental safety, being honored with numerous industry accolades,” said Lawrence Goldenhersh, president and CEO, Enviance. “Arch Coal is once again at the forefront with addressing environmental safety and compliance requirements. Enviance’s Environmental solution will allow Arch Coal to centralize and manage its complex compliance and permitting requirements into one manageable system, providing transparent data to help further mitigate environmental risks.”
