How to Thrive in an Evolving EHS Landscape
In today’s world, EHS goes beyond compliance. As a key organizational pillar in most corporations, EHS departments are not only concerned with ensuring occupational health and safety, maintaining appropriate environmental protection standards, and reducing operational risks; They are also responsible for driving operational excellence while reducing costs and streamlining business processes.
The pressure for companies to respond to the demands of internal and external stakeholders in an increasingly demanding context also means that today’s stakeholders are concerned with matters that go beyond overall social responsibility. Increasingly so, stakeholders are seeking to engage, to participate and to understand the finer details (through reports, specific data, KPIs…) of how exactly a company is able to reduce and manage its environmental impacts while maintaining normal operating conditions.
In a context of closely monitored yet uncertain global environmental conditions, businesses must also be ready to respond to higher volumes of new and increasingly restrictive laws, standards and regulations (it’s worth remembering that the specific impacts on business of the Paris climate deal are yet to be known).
As a result, while the role of the EHS manager is also evolving and becoming more complex, interdisciplinary and holistic, rising to the occasion and meeting the unique EHS challenges of the coming decades also offers a valuable opportunity to thrive and grow by pioneering new approaches.
