While shiny new sustainability projects continue to draw attention from the media, NAEM’s recent trends report revealed a new rubric for sustainability performance within companies. The criteria: alignment with the business strategy, integration into business operations, and achieving measurable results.
Harvard Business Review (HBR) has published its annual global ranking of the 100 best-performing CEOs, with Pablo Isla of the Spanish fashion retail giant Inditex topping the list for the second year in a row. Following behind Isla in the #2 and #3 spots are Jensen Huang of NVIDIA and Bernard Arnault of LVMH. They’re joined by newcomers to the top 5 this year, François-Henri Pinault of Kering (#4) and Elmar Degenhart of the German automaker Continental (#5). Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff has climbed to the #6 spot, up from #12 in 2017.
David Williams, Director of Environment and Sustainability with Teva Pharmaceuticals, describes how access to sophisticated data analytics tools are transforming the EHS& sustainability management profession. If you'd like to better leverage data to tell your sustainability story, join NAEM March 5-7 at the annual EHS&S Software and Data Management Conference: http://ehsmis.naem.org/index.php.
January 19, 2018 /3BL Media/ - Today’s environment, health, safety and sustainability (EHS&S) managers are challenged to embed their programs into every aspect of the business. To do so, they are increasingly looking to technology to lend a hand.
“Software systems are becoming the digital backbone of EHS&S management,” said NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt. “Data management systems are the key to finding the areas with the greatest potential for business risk and for making stretched resources go farther.”
Harvard Business Review just released their much anticipated The Best-Performing CEOs in the World 2017 list. CSRHub is honored to have our ESG (environmental, social, and governance) metrics included again this year as part of the methodology for ranking the world’s top 100 CEOs.
CSRHub Co-Founder and COO, Cynthia Figge, will be speaking at Sustainable Brands New Metrics conference, in Boston, Massachusetts, on November 14-16. Cynthia will discuss The Second Generation of ESG Metrics and the Movement to bring “Dark Data” to Light. New Metrics will showcase the macro, corporate and investor landscapes to help business succeed.
Several groups have written predictions about the future course of the Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) measurement space. We’ve seen stories about the importance of millennials (as both customers and employees), a sense that carbon tracking is finally an accepted part of corporate life, and that companies must watch out for a range of new legal and regulatory issues.
‘Materiality’ may still be an emerging concept, but according to the EHS and sustainability leaders who participated in a recent benchmarking study by the National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM), many companies have already developed a process for prioritizing their material risks.
