Executive Summary

Verdantix has been following the trend of sustainability and EH&S coming together, which has accelerated over the last 15 months. This report looks at the problem from an EH&S officer’s perspective and helps to benchmark their responsibilities and priorities against their peers. How frequently are they becoming responsible for sustainability? How does sustainability rank as a priority workstream for the coming year? The analysis presented here is based on interviews with 312 senior EH&S executives at firms with $250 million to over $20 billion in annual revenues (see Verdantix Global EH&S Leaders Survey 2015: Budgets And Priorities). The breakdown of responses by 15 regions and 21 industries reveals that resource-intensive sectors and regulatory-driven environments are seeing strongest convergence of EH&S and sustainability responsibilities. Pressure for EH&S officers to tackle sustainability data management will continue to increase, with two in five firms’ respondents viewing sustainability reporting improvements as very important.
