NAEM Solve-It Networks

NAEM Solve-Its tackle specific environment, health, safety and sustainability (EHS&S) issues that are too big or costly for one company to solve on its own. Solve-It participants discuss challenges and brainstorm solutions. Facilitator-led sessions identify the scope of an issue, develop desired outcomes and work on tools and processes.

You don't have to be a member of NAEM to join. Solve-Its are open to all in-house EHS&S professionals and anyone in a department or function that touches the topic of the Solve-It group. To join a Solve-It group or to learn more, please email

Solve-It: DataLab - ESG Reporting

Solve-It: DataLab - ESG Reporting

Feb. 27, 2019
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (EST)

This kick-off call for ESG Reporting is a great opportunity for you to find out if this is the Solve-It group for you. The meeting is free and open to everyone, and no long-term commitment is required to participate.

ESG has become a critical rating, not just for investors, but for lenders, creditors, and proxy advisors, who use it as an input into decisions on credit ratings, lending capital, and even voting recommendations to shareholders. The issue is that ESG lacks standard benchmarking and different methodologies are used to rank companies, resulting in comparisons of apples to oranges to bananas.

During this call, we are bringing together a diverse group of EHS&S professionals who have responsibility for aspects of ESG reporting at their companies, and who want to bring more order and standard practices to the reporting universe.

Under the guidance of a professional facilitator, this 'DataLab' session will get everyone on the same page using the following format:

1. Objective
Meet other thought leaders concerned about ESG reporting to develop a clear problem statement and discuss and agree upon a set of deliverables that would help address the problem.

2. Agenda
- Brief introductions
- Overview of process and where we are today
- What we heard from you: Overview of member feedback on problem statement
- Comments: Is the problem statement framed properly?
- What we heard from you: Recommendations on possible solutions
- Comments: Do these solutions resonate? Are there others that should be discussed?
- Online poll: Prioritizing possible solutions
- Comments: Who else should be included? Who else should we/you invite to participate?
- Closing and next steps

3. Results
Results of the discussions will inform an in-person meeting in March. NAEM may do targeted outreach with personal invitations to people/organizations mentioned on the webinar as key stakeholders to include. The March meeting will focus on the prioritized possible solutions agreed upon on the webinar, allowing the Solve-It to co-create deliverables, timelines and responsible parties together.
