The 2021 EHS & Sustainability Management Forum draws over 700+ EHS&S decision-makers and supports professional development goals with educational programming, peer-to-peer discussions, a virtual exhibit hall, and networking events.

The National Association for EHS&S Management (NAEM) empowers corporate leaders to advance environmental stewardship, create safe and healthy workplaces, and promote global sustainability.

Abstract

The demand for corporations to take action on a plethora of ESG and sustainability issues can be overwhelming for those tasked with coordinating necessary actions. Because of the complexity of these issues, an ESG management system can be a game changer. But what does this approach involve? Join this session to learn the key steps: identifying material topics, assessing the risk and opportunities, identifying applicable guidelines, and developing an action plan. Come away with a deeper understanding of how to avoid "random actions of sustainability kindness" and instead take a strategic approach that adds business value and decreases risk.
