EHS and Sustainability Leaders invited to identify the ‘Green Metrics That Matter’

Washington, D.C., April 14, 2011 - To identify the most relevant sustainability metrics for corporate leaders, NAEM this week invited EHS and sustainability decision-makers to complete the ‘Green Metrics that Matter’ survey.

Launched last year among NAEM’s Board of Regents, the research project compares the metrics external stakeholders use to evaluate a company’s sustainability performance with the metrics companies track internally.

Understanding the discrepancies between these approaches is the first step toward improving the clarity, relevancy and value of external sustainability reporting, according to NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt.

“Up to this point there has been a flood of external requests for information, without a clear understanding of what information actually matters to corporate leaders,” she said.

By opening the survey up to a broader group of EHS and sustainability practitioners, NAEM hopes to provide insight into best practices and a much-needed voice for the business community, Neuvelt said.

“We believe this will be a useful learning tool for companies whose systems are just maturing or those who would like to be more proactive when it comes to environmental, health and safety.”

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
