Special Keynote Presentation: Resiliency, Sustainability, and Adaptation - Keeping your Assets Above Water

Climate change has now altered the traditional frame of EHS issues. At the NAEM 2013 Forum oceanographer John Englander opened up the subject of rising sea level. Now he advises corporations, military leaders, and various professions how to plan for the coming decades to keep their assets above water - with coastal and inland flood scenarios. He recommends that ADAPTATION must be part of a suite of solutions along with SUSTAINABILITY and RESILIENCY. In this new era, leaders must understand how the three are related, yet different. Trillions of dollars of assets will go underwater this century; the opportunity to create new asset values will be even greater. Englander explains the science through memorable stories, using images from his expeditions to Antarctica and the Arctic.

 

As an exclusive benefit, NAEM Regents will be able to download the first chapter of John Englander’s coming book, "Moving to Higher Ground: Rising Sea Level and the Path Forward" for free.

Insights from Shirley Parson's EHS Talent Report

During one of the tightest labor markets in decades, demand for talent has skyrocketed and EHS leaders are feeling pressure to deliver greater results with fewer resources. Shirley Parsons recently surveyed 533 EHS executives from across the United States, asking them to assess their organizations' EHS cultures and provide information surrounding the structure and turnover within their teams. In this short presentation, Sam will run through some insights from their inaugural EHS Talent Report and provide attendees with takeaways they can use to benchmark their own organizations.
