Enterprise Sustainability Management – Emergence of a New Paradigm
Join LNS Research, ERM Information Solutions, OSIsoft, IHS and Environmental Leader for a live webcast on how a unified enterprise sustainability management strategy can help organizations achieve operational and financial performance goals on October 17, 2012, 8 am PDT/11 am EDT.
The exact meaning of “sustainability” varies from one organization to another, depending on their line of business and circumstances. Even within a single organization, different departments and stakeholders often have different perspectives and priorities. But experts see signs of a new historic trend in the way that industry leaders pursue their goals through more effective management of sustainability information.
Companies around the world are gravitating toward a unified strategy for enterprise sustainability management that standardizes and consolidates a broad spectrum of data and workflows across the organization. They are using this holistic approach to address proliferating challenges in environmental, health and safety, operational risk management, product stewardship, energy, carbon, and beyond. Successful companies are integrating sustainability initiatives from all of these areas into core business operations in order to drive operational excellence.
The webcast will begin with the results of an independent study into the emergence of enterprise sustainability management, followed by a panel of experts who will discuss their first-hand experiences in helping companies from a variety of industries and regions leverage ESM into a new competitive advantage.
Matthew Littlefield, founder, president and principal analyst at LNS Research and author of the study, will present a summary of his firm’s findings.
The panelists include Vijay Gudivaka, global managing partner of ERM Information Solutions; Andrew Fanara, chief sustainability strategist at OSIsoft; and Jeffrey Ladner, IHS senior director of EHS and sustainability products. The topics of discussion will cover what ESM is and what business benefits it delivers; how companies traditionally managed sustainability information and processes; and which resources and capabilities are most essential to the success of an ESM strategy.
