BELFAST tech firm Sustain IQ, which develops software for organisations to monitor their social, economic and environmental impacts, has become the Construction Employers Federation's (CEF) latest commercial partner.

The tie-up comes at a time when environmental performance is front and centre for the industry, and the ability to monitor and improve performance is key to sustainable construction.

SustainIQ is a unique, integrated software tool that measures, monitors and reports on social, economic and environmental impacts. Customers use SustainIQ to increase efficiency and win new business by improving their productivity and bottom line.

Co-founder Liam McEvoy said: “Many of our construction customers have stringent regulatory and contract sustainability obligations to comply with. Measuring and reporting sustainable practices can be difficult and time consuming as the data is often siloed and scattered across many sites.

“Pulling it together can take a lot of effort and time. We provides them with rich, valuable data that helps companies with strategic decision-making and has supported many of our customers in winning new business.”

Representing the interests of around 800 member companies, CEF is the sole certified representative body for the construction industry in the north.

Its managing director Mark Spence said: “We are delighted to welcome SustainIQ as a commercial partner to assist our members, who represent 70 per cent of construction in Northern Ireland.”

Last month corporate and commercial law firm Mills Selig became the official legal patron of the CEF.
