Our History

NAEM was founded in 1990 by a small group of environmental management professionals who were looking for a way to exchange ideas and learn from one another.

In the early 1990s they began meeting to share their stories and hear their peers’ best practices for preventing pollution, complying with environmental regulations, and advocating for change within their companies.

What started as a small group of dedicated practitioners has grown into the largest professional community of corporate environmental, health and safety, and sustainability decision-makers.

Our peer-driven educational programs deliver insight into the latest trends and and the tools practitioners need to add business value through EHS.

  • NAEM offered one of the first conferences on how to implement a sustainability program.
  • In 1999, NAEM introduced corporate leaders to John Elkington’s ground-breaking concept of the "triple bottom line".
  • Last year, NAEM invited Peter Senge, the revolutionary business strategist and author of "The Necessary Revolution," to address our community as a keynote speaker at our annual conference.

In our 20th year, NAEM is introducing a new website where practitioners can share information and network in a private, online setting. As always, we continue to equip our members with the tools they need to continuously improve their programs, develop professionally, and move the EHS profession forward.
