February Meeting

February Meeting


Join us on February 16th for our next Durham East Chapter meeting!

Peter Sturm will be presenting on Safety Sustainability. 


Sustainability through Safety: The shifting landscape – Are you prepared for the conversation?

While Sustainability for many has traditionally been linked to environmental performance in organizations, that landscape has changed. Evolving business drivers for sustainability and reporting now focus on “Human Capital” and the “people” element of sustainability. What does this shift mean for the safety practitioner and professional?

Peter will discuss the “how” to identify and communicate effective sustainability initiatives using global standards and guidelines such as ISO and SASB accounting standards, the Global Reporting Initiative, Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Integrated Reporting. This is based on latest global research on safety+sustainability being done around the world. Participants will experience the new sustainability tools for safety to assess, review, plan and implement in your organization. This applies to all company sizes, and will challenge the traditional view that sustainability is just for large companies.

You will receive both a “Guide to Concepts and Tools and Workbook on Sustainability and Safety. Also included will be a company self-assessment and readiness tool, and a planning and development tool to take back to your company.

It’s time to move beyond safety compliance to being a safety leader prepared for the global sustainability movement.
