Drena Howard, Director of Global Retail EHS for The Estée Lauder Co's. Inc. explains how communication skills are a key component to effective EHS&S leadership.

"One of the main elements of EHS is changing employee behavior — changing corporate behavior. And you have to utilize a lot of different communication and analytical tools to do that... At the core essence, it's people, and what I find myself doing as an EHS professional is changing the behaviors of people to get on board with the new sustainability initiative, the new health and safety initiative, or just reinforcing the tried and true methods around preventing fatalities and things of that nature."
