Celebrating 27 Years of Innovation: Locus’ Journey from Silicon Valley to Around the World

As April 11th approaches, we at Locus are thrilled to commemorate a significant milestone in our company’s history: our 27th anniversary. Since our founding in Silicon Valley, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to revolutionizing environmental and sustainability management, and this anniversary serves as a testament to our longevity, innovation, and dedication to our customers and employees. 

In 1999, Locus launched the world’s first commercial EHS compliance and water quality management Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. Our software has been ahead of the curve for a quarter century in helping organizations manage their EHS compliance, water, and sustainability and turn their data into a competitive advantage in their operating models and ESG scoring. 

Our work at Locus has evolved over time to encompass more and more aspects of business strategic planning. While a critical incentive to using Locus SaaS is regulatory compliance, Locus has taken a more comprehensive view of the mandate to improve environmental stewardship by creating systems to improve EHS+S performance across our clients’ organizational silos; regulatory programs; emission sources; energy management; water management, all aspects of EHS and risk, ESG reporting, and technology platforms and mobile devices. We unified complex EHS Compliance and ESG reporting in a single Locus Platform. 

Over nearly three decades, Locus has emerged as a leader in the field, offering a robust software platform that consistently outperforms the competition. Our multitenant SaaS platform is renowned for its scalability and configurability, empowering organizations of all sizes to efficiently streamline their environmental, health, safety, and sustainability operations. 

Our cutting-edge technology and unwavering focus on customer satisfaction and success set Locus apart. We understand that our customers trust us with their mission-critical data, and we take that responsibility seriously. Through our robust ESG reporting and water management solutions, we have helped countless organizations navigate complex regulatory landscapes, optimize resource usage, and drive sustainable business practices.   

In addition to success with our award-winning software, we continue to provide world-class consulting services related to complex environmental issues in Silicon Valley, from groundwater and air contamination to verification services under the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 [Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32)], which created a comprehensive, multi-year program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California. We expanded this program to several other states, giving us tremendous insights and domain expertise that we embedded in our ESG software apps. 

As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our loyal customers who have placed their trust in us year after year. Your partnership and collaboration have been instrumental in our journey, and we are honored to continue supporting your environmental and sustainability initiatives. 

We also sincerely appreciate our dedicated team of employees on four continents, whose passion, expertise, and hard work drive our success. It is your unwavering commitment to excellence that has propelled Locus to new heights and enabled us to make a positive impact on the world. 

The EHS and sustainability software space is complex and has eluded many large and small companies. It requires multidisciplinary teams of experts from computer science to engineers, chemists, biologists, geologists, regulatory experts, climate scientists, and many more. With its modern, multitenant SaaS architecture and deep multidisciplinary industry understanding, Locus is ideally positioned to continue leading the industry innovation from the introduction of new software technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain to new revolutionary applications like embodied carbon and water lifecycle management. 

We know how solid our software technology is, and, above all, we know that no competitor can match it now. Our investment in technology was very targeted to overcome competition on the technological platform. And I believe we did it. While they were busy merging incompatible silos applications, we were busy building a technological platform that set us apart from theirs. We set to build something slowly but very big and powerful for a scalable future. 

Our good market position is thanks to a proven strategic approach: organizing all enterprise environmental, energy, sustainability, water, carbon, waste, safety, and air information in one platform and one system of record on the Web. Indeed, our combination of market approach and organic growth management has adequately guarded against the risk factors that often erode an organization’s evolutionary potential. 

As we reflect on the past 27 years and look ahead to the future, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation, delivering unparalleled value to our customers, and driving positive change for our planet. We will continue building on a solid foundation for a more sustainable and resilient world for generations. 

We use cloud technologies to solve our customers’ complex information management challenges related to environmental, sustainability, water, and energy data management and reporting. We turn environmental Big Data into actionable, real-time information. Most importantly, we help our clients lower operating costs and reduce risk. 

Thank you for being part of our journey.
