EHS Compliance is the First Step on the Path to Sustainability According to a New White Paper From Dakota Software
CLEVELAND --(Business Wire)--
Sustainability initiatives filter to all levels of an organization when
implementation starts with environmental, health and safety (EHS)
regulatory compliance, according to the new whitepaper "The
Business Case for Corporate Sustainability Tools" by
The white paper demonstrates how pressure from consumers, investors and
global leaders is propelling the sustainability movement. It also
suggests that EHS professionals now have allies in the Corporate
Executive suite who understand the importance of sustainable practices
and environmental responsibility. In order to satisfy these demands
successful companies are managing EHS compliance and sustainability
initiatives using appropriate tools.
"It seems that every day now, another article is published trumpeting
the importance of sustainabiliy," noted author Reg Shiverick, President
of Dakota Software. "What many EHS Managers and Sustainability Directors
struggle with is eliciting buy-in from the key players within their
organization. This white paper presents consolidated research supporting
sustainability trends and offers guidance to those looking to instill a
culture of sustainability."
The white paper highlights studies from the Carbon Disclosure Project,
the Sustainability Leadership Report and surveys from Ernst and Young
and PricewaterhouseCoopers (News - Alert). Recommendations are identified from the
Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for
closing the "implementation gap" of insufficient compliance with
environmental requirements. OECD says that if businesses want to
accomplish various sustainability objectives, they need to treat
compliance as the gateway to success.
