Chief EH&S Officers Council

Apply Here

We live in an era of increasingly limited resources: both the natural resources of our planet, and the financial and human resources needed to achieve corporate EH&S goals. This Council is targeted at chief environment, health and safety (EH&S) officers from leading companies who have found innovative ways to meet those goals. Member companies span a range of industry sectors. Learn how you can contribute to your company's success by developing an effective and efficient EH&S organization. Council members explore and exchange ideas on how peer companies and industry leaders:

  • Develop and set corporate EH&S strategies
  • Establish the business value of EH&S
    programs and their impact on corporate objectives
  • Integrate EH&S goals and metrics into
    corporate strategies that include operations and supply chains
  • Strengthen leadership in risk management, talent
    management, incentives, disclosure, and reporting
  • Identify and assess potential impacts of
    emerging strategic EH&S issues
  • Facilitate benchmarking of leading EH&S practices and processes

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
