Latest News - April 2016 - NAEM Fields Comprehensive Survey of EHS and Sustainability Organizations
NAEM Fields Comprehensive Survey of EHS and Sustainability Organizations

Washington, DC, April 13, 2016 - Today NAEM initiated its latest benchmarking survey on how companies staff, structure and assign responsibilities to the environment, health and safety, and sustainability (EHS&S) function.

NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt said the initiative was designed in cooperation with a committee of corporate leaders to meet the unique needs of those who are responsible for hiring EHS&S talent.

"There's a lot of discussion today about the impact of a company's programs, but not a lot of information about how to structure and design these functions," she said. "NAEM's research is an invaluable tool for those looking to benchmark how factors such as industry, risk and company size affect overall staffing."

Building on the data from NAEM's 2012 benchmark on this topic, the updated survey will identify common organizational structures and the number of full-time employees dedicated at each level, as well as the core functional responsibilities for EHS&S professionals where the function is most frequently collaborating across silos.

"Our past research has documented the substantial role EHS&S professionals play within their companies," Ms. Neuvelt said. "We hope all of our members will take this opportunity to contribute their perspective to this important body of knowledge."

The survey will be in the field from April 13, 2016 to June 3, 2016. The full report will be published on NAEM's website in November 2016. To learn more about NAEM's 2016 "EHS & Sustainability Staffing, Structure and Budgets" research, please visit http://www.naem.org/page/survey_2016_staffing.
