Sustainability has a broad range of meanings to different stakeholders and different organizations.
ERM views sustainability as a commitment to socioeconomic development that satisfies present demands without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Within an organization, improving sustainability can cover a range of issues, from responding to mega trends such as climate change and developing new products to retiring legacy assets and operating in an efficient, compliant and responsible way.
Sustainability lies at the very heart of ERM’s business. For more than 40 years, we have focused on helping organizations respond to and manage sustainability issues, and at the same time identify and leverage opportunities to improve performance and profitability.
ERM’s approach is to integrate sustainability – strategies, systems and practices – throughout an organization. This holistic approach helps to:
- Boost collaboration and innovation;
- Increase operational efficiency and agility;
- Reduce operational costs and risk; and
- Future-proof major capital projects, ongoing operations and supply chains.
