Executive Summary

The steady increase in voluntary and mandatory sustainability reporting requirements and increasing scrutiny from stakeholders is putting pressure on firms’ existing EH&S and sustainability systems. At present the majority of firms pull data from multiple dispersed EH&S systems, meaning data capture is inconsistent across facilities and regions. This report helps address some of the major questions and challenges that EH&S and sustainability executives will need to confront to ensure their EH&S IT strategies keeps pace with industry leaders. In the next few years firms will begin to implement standardized processes for capturing and reporting EH&S and sustainability data to boost data quality.
