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 Dakota Software.

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.
