NAEM Announces Agenda for Metrics and Materiality Conference

Washington, DC, March 25, 2014 - Today NAEM announced the topics for its upcoming “Metrics and Materiality for EHS & Sustainability” conference on May 21-22 in Denver, Colo. The event is designed as a forum for discussing the leading approaches to measuring and communicating a company’s environmental, social and governance performance.

NAEM Executive Director said the topic remains top-of-mind for NAEM members, who are responsible for defining sustainability strategy for their companies.

“Every company defines sustainability for itself, based on its industry, its business model and importantly, the issues that are material to the company’s stakeholders,” she said. “This conference will explore the management challenges associated with establishing these programs and communicating the results.”

The peer-led agenda includes a mix of case studies, research presentation and roundtable discussions on the following topics:

  • Putting a Formal EHS Sustainability Strategy into Operation
  • Materiality Assessments as a Tool to Inform Sustainability Strategy
  • Case Studies: Approaches to Understanding Material Issues
  • Moving Targets: A look forward to 2020 Sustainability Goals
  • Understanding Materiality in the Context of Supply Chains
  • The Future of Sustainability Metrics
  • Assurance and Third-party Data Validation
  • Lessons Learned from the CDP and DJSI Disclosure Process

To learn how companies are structuring their metrics programs, conducting the materiality assessments and reporting those results externally, join NAEM on May 21-22 in Denver.

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.
