The worlds of health and safety and ESG have changed radically in recent years.
While once the ability of health and safety professionals to accurately assess what was happening across their businesses was drastically limited by the amount and quality of the data they collected and ESG was perceived as a set of loose principles that was not yet top-of-mind for most business leaders, that is no longer the case.
Now, EHS and ESG professionals have so much data and so many data collection systems at their fingertips that 57 percent said that their biggest challenge is searching for critical data in disparate data collection systems. Ninety-seven percent of respondents admitted to challenges related to ESG, with 50% saying their greatest challenge was measuring ESG performance improvement metrics/ROI.
Independent research firm Vanson Bourne interviewed 450 EHS and ESG professionals in the United States and Canada to try to reach an understanding of how mature organizations are today when it comes to EHS and ESG, focusing on their priorities and challenges. Join Virginia Hoekenga, Deputy Director of NAEM, Trevor Bronson, Director of Portfolio Strategy at Intelex Technologies; and Fern Beauchamp, Research Manager at Vanson Bourne as they discuss the results of the Intelex North American Market Research Study highlighting the trends and challenges facing today’s EHS and ESG professionals.
