Many traditional ‘folder on the shelf’ systems are only good for ‘getting the tick from auditors’. It often fails to facilitate significant reductions in environmental and safety risks and can be a challenge in implementing effective EHS management systems. In this video, Dr. Manuel Seidel speaks about the different levels of maturity of organis
ations in their risk and sustainability programmes. He further illustrates the benefits and values of the ecoWheel Framework to guide you through an on-going journey of improved performance.
So what challenges do most companies face at every stage?
1. Lack of management buy-in Skip to this part in the video
The initial barrier for effective risk and sustainability programme lies in management buy-in which is often rooted only for the sake of compliance. ecoWheel framework offers a long-term perspective of your programmes with short-term goals. This motivates management to start activating the changes required and participate in the entire process.
2. Narrow-focus on cost Skip to this part in the video
As companies go ahead in their journey through increase in projects, they tend to focus on cutting corners rather than wider life-cycles of their risk and sustainability programmes. ecoWheel framework will help to prioritize the tasks in order to use resources and costs more efficiently.
3. Limited employee involvement Skip to this part in the video
As companies become proactive in managing their risk and sustainability programmes, employees show limited support and engagement due to no direct responsibility in the process. ecoWheel platform provides access to information directly relevant to the employee so that everyone is on the same page.
4. Lack of transparency to build competitive advantage Skip to this part in the video
Transparency is necessary in order to gain further competitive advantage, and that can be achieved through a holistic approach and enterprise level of collaboration. ecoWheel framework will provide visibility to your long-term strategy at enterprise level.
The ecoWheel framework is designed to serve as a simplified and efficient management tool for companies who intend to build or have an existing risk and sustainability programme. With the ecoWheel Framework, an organisation can understand their current position, where they need to progress and the steps in between.
