Corporate EH&S professionals face a challenge in selecting and using an Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) to capture, evaluate, and report on, their critical EH&S Metrics. Beyond the standard environmental compliance and safety metrics, the increasing focus on Sustainability and its associated metrics is adding an additional aspect that an EMIS must address. There are numerous commercially available options, and evaluating, selecting, and using a particular EMIS can be a daunting task. This event discusses the options and challenges, provides some insight and recommendations on how to select and use an EMIS, and provides three (3) brief case studies the selection/use of different EMIS options, with an emphasis on how to incorporate Sustainability metrics within the platform.

Today NAEM announced its 2017 conference calendar, focused on the latest management challenges and emerging practices for environment, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability leaders. "Because the EHS&S field continues to evolve along with the spectrum of risks it manages, NAEM's 2017 calendar was developed to be timely and relevant to the needs of those leading these programs within companies," said Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt.
When NAEM joins the Greenway Foundation for a cleanup along the South Fork of the Platte River in downtown Denver later this month, its efforts will be powered by environmental, safety and sustainability leaders from companies such as Toyota Motor North America Inc., Procter & Gamble Co., Lockheed Martin Corp., Bose Corp. and The WhiteWave Foods Co.
