Latest News - May 2014 - Effective Resource Management Will Require a Systems Approach, NAEM Report
Effective Resource Management Will Require a Systems Approach, NAEM Report Finds

New Report on “The Energy-Water Nexus” Identifies Resource Risks, Management Opportunities for Corporate Leaders.

Washington, DC, May 19, 2014 -Ensuring a viable supply of energy and water will require a long-term strategy and a systems approach to problem-solving, according to a new report released today by the National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM).

The first in a new series of NAEM reports on emerging issues, “The Energy-Water Nexus” provides a detailed analysis of the interdependent relationship between energy production and water supply, and outlines how resource scarcity is expected to affect business continuity. The report also identifies the strategies corporate leaders are using today to effectively manage energy and water from a systems perspective.

NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt said the report reflects the increasingly complex landscape in which companies are making decisions about environmental management.  

“As waning supply and increased demand start to put stress on energy and water, companies will face new questions and tradeoffs,” she said. “This report is our contribution to helping our members understand this changing resource landscape, and providing them with the tools they need to think through the impacts of these resources on their operations.”

With examples and case studies drawn from in-depth interviews with NAEM members, Ms. Neuvelt said the report also demonstrates the thought leadership that EHS and sustainability leaders bring to their work every day. 

“Our members are developing long-term strategies to begin the process of adapting to a changing climate,” she said. “Those who follow their example will be best positioned for future competitiveness, resiliency and sustainability.”
