Mergers & Acquisitions – Due Diligence & Integration

Thursday September 22, 2016
8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (CDT)

Location: General Mills Inc. - One General Mills Blvd., Golden Valley, MN 55426

The NAEM Upper Midwest Chapter cordially invites you to the fall chapter meeting at General Mills. This meeting will have a panel discussion on due diligence including Phase I/II, data rooms, compliance reviews, asbestos surveys and working with attorneys. In addition, we will discuss best practices to address integration challenges such as culture, budgets, systems/tools, corporate standards, and sustainability.

  • Is a Phase 1 enough? How do you know when to stop the due diligence?
  • You have 800 documents to review in the next two weeks, how do you get it done?
  • Balancing acquisition risk with desires of the business – is there a middle ground?
  • What is the goal of due diligence vs integration?
  • Post-acquisition: How do we integrate company cultures? What about EHS/sustainability metrics?

The meeting will be followed by an optional networking lunch to allow continued discussion and networking with your peers. Come to learn and more importantly share what works well for your organization!

Gina McCarthy to Share Inspiring Vision at NAEM’s Conference for Corporate EHS&S Leaders

April 5, 2018

Safeguarding the environment and protecting public health can go hand-in-hand with business growth, Gina McCarthy says, and on May 16 she will share this vision with corporate leaders at NAEM's 2018 Compliance Management conference in Austin.

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
