    When employees feel comfortable in their roles and are willing to be their own person, ask for help, share their ideas, or challenge the status quo without fear of backlash, organizations are more likely to innovate, become more diverse, and adapt to change - factors which have grown in importance as a result of the pandemic.

Companies are witnessing dramatic changes in the business environment, regulatory policy, access to finance, and stakeholder expectations, and as such, are making sweeping changes to address risk and capitalize on opportunities.

They also need to understand the threats and opportunities that are part of the world in which they operate. Understanding the nature of risk might not be the most exciting part of running an organization, but it's the one that will help to ensure you have an organization to work at in the years to come.

    Non-routine or infrequent tasks, including maintenance and startup/shutdown activities, present a range of hazards. Emergencies also present hazards that must be identified and understood. In both cases, hazard identification, situational awareness and critical thinking are essential to optimizing outcomes and making what may turn out to be life-saving decisions.

    ESG Assurance – an opportunity for transparency and trust
    Customers, employees and investors are increasingly putting ESG issues front and center when making decisions about the companies they engage with. Rising shareholder and consumer activism, as well as new forms of regulation, mean that it is no longer enough to simply state ambitions or good intentions. The challenge is to prove to stakeholders that policies and initiatives are translating into meaningful action and impact throughout the company’s business plan and its supply chain. Brands that can achieve this have an opportunity to establish long-term loyalty, advocacy and even competitive advantage.

    The Path to Net Zero: Taking Action over what you Control
    The high-level approach to achieving real net zero is straightforward: eliminate Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) where you can across the lifecycle; reduce emissions of those that can’t be eliminated; substitute more carbon-intensive activities and sources with less intensive approaches and renewable energy; and as a last resort neutralize only that which is unavoidable, through the acquisition of offsets.

    The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP26, was the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference, held at the SEC Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. The tone of COP is often optimistic in week one, with reporting running into the reality of compromise and delay in week two.

    Creating a Net Positive Organization
    Possibly the most important and complex thing we do in our professional practice is the management of change (MOC). This is a central component of our management systems, and, is also referred to as change management. As EHSS professionals we orient to MOC mainly from a technical perspective. I focus here on a non-technical aspect of it and suggest that we stand at a leadership threshold, one, that if we step through, can provide greater enterprise-wide impact.
