Big Ambitions, Complex Data and Limited Visibility: How EHS and ESG Professionals Are Dealing with Today's Evolving Challenges


11/10/22 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

The worlds of safety and health, and ESG, have changed drastically in recent years.

One of most significant changes is the amount of data available to EHS and ESG professionals. Finding critical data, however, among a number of disparate systems, was a key challenge cited during a recent survey conducted by research firm Vanson Bourne on behalf of Intelex Technologies.

In this webinar, Scott Gaddis from Intelex, Fern Beauchamp from Vanson Bourne and John Dony from the National Safety Council will discuss the survey results and current trends in the field.

This webinar also will examine NSC’s research along with some of the other challenges facing today’s EHS and ESG professionals.
