Sustainability Governance Audit

Gib Hedstrom led the development of environmental auditing in the 1980s while at the global consulting firm Arthur D. Little. The same audit principles that he applied in leading thousands of audits globally also work to review a company’s sustainability governance structure. Examples include…

EHS and Sustainability Governance System

Working with the Board committee with oversight of EHS and sustainability, as well as the CEO, company Presidents, CFO, General Counsel, and Vice President of EHS, we reviewed the EHS and sustainability governance system of a Fortune 500 company. The goal was to ensure that a robust governance system would drive top quartile performance. The review included:

  • Board Committee Agenda Restructuring
  • Goals and Metrics
  • Assurance Letter Process
  • Emerging Issues Analysis
  • Comprehensive EHS and Sustainability Risk Assessment Process
  • Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) Audit Program Redesign

Sustainability Governance Audit

For the CEO of a Fortune 100 company, we conducted an independent environmental governance audit. Benchmarking peer companies and drawing on our proprietary Sustainability ScorecardTM, we advised the client on the path forward that will deliver concrete business value while advancing its corporate citizenship efforts globally.
