Description

This is a complimentary program sponsored by BSI.

A company’s assessment of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) performance is increasingly becoming a key indicator alongside financials to inform customers, stakeholders and employees about the resilience and long-term viability of an organization. Adopting an innovative health and safety approach (the “S” in ESG) is proven to lower risk, drive market relevance, and increase shareholder value. 

Bloomberg Environment invites organizational leaders from compliance and risk, sustainability, health and safety, and their general counsels for an important webinar to explore some of the latest thinking around health and safety strategies and frameworks that can drive business advantage, innovation, market relevance, and shareholder value.

Educational Objectives:
• The imperative for companies to perform a gap analysis of current health and safety concerns 
• The concept of ‘Prevention through Design (PtD) for EHS’
• Total Worker Health – A holistic approach to worker well-being
• Impact of Health and Safety initiatives on reputation and risk management, global competitiveness, talent management, transparency and accountability.

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Leading executives in compliance, risk, sustainability, health and safety departments as well as attorneys and in-house counsel who deal with compliance, governance and employee health and safety.
