Sustainable Resilient Remediation: Driving Cost Savings and Using Management Dashboards to Align with Corporate ESGs
Sustainable and resilient remediation (SRR) is not only a desirable societal goal, but also offers tangible benefits of cost savings and alignment with corporate environmental social governance (ESG). SRR considers four key elements: the environment, economic viability, social impacts, and climate resilience. This presentation weaves in case study examples to illustrate these elements and the benefits of this approach. Cost savings is one important measure of success, but success can also be benchmarked by other programs. Telling a story of success is key to showing stakeholders a company’s commitment to the their established ESG goals. Company ESG goals often focused on products or services, rather than remediation portfolios. With remediation, showing ESG progress can seem overwhelming and too small of impact. This presentation demonstrates how plan, measure, and report appropriately against those goals using dashboards.
