Industry leaders are implementing Enterprise Sustainability Management (ESM)
Businesses worldwide recognize that they need to make sustainability an integral part of their business operations. They face proliferating demands for sustainability performance reporting for compliance with not only government regulations but also voluntary protocols, industry standards and corporate initiatives as well as growing pressure for transparency from customers, communities and investors.
To address this critical business challenge, industry-leading companies are implementing comprehensive new information strategies for Enterprise Sustainability Management (ESM). ESM drives convergence of information and processes across key disciplines –including environmental performance, operational risk management, product stewardship, energy and carbon, health and safety and social responsibility and governance – to promote continuous improvement throughout a global enterprise.
Enterprise Sustainability Management strategies help companies enable a culture of operational excellence that can generate continuous improvements across every aspect of their business. By helping an organization manage risk, drive workflow efficiency and optimize resources, ESM ultimately impacts financial performance and shareholder value. See more information about ESM.
