The Global Environmental Management Initiative (GEMI) has launched a new environmental, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability solution tool called the GEMI Solution Tools Matrix.
GEMI was formed in 1990 by a group of companies dedicated to fostering global environmental, health and safety (EHS) and sustainability excellence. There are 22 member companies representing more than 15 business sectors. Famous name members include 3M; Duke Energy; DuPont; Eastman Kodak; FedEx; Johnson & Johnson; Kraft Foods and Procter & Gamble.
The organisation’s approach is to provide a forum for global corporate environmental leaders to work together and to create and share tools and information to help businesses worldwide improve their environmental, health and safety achievements.
To that end, GEMI has created an interactive web solution to guide users through all of the tools the organisation has developed over the past twenty years. “The new GEMI Solution Tools Matrix serves as a how-to/where-to solution for professionals seeking guidance on addressing environmental sustainability issues” said GEMI Chair, Moe Bechard, of Diversey, Inc.
The collection of 30 solution tools offers guidance and examples for addressing challenges and opportunities across the sustainability continuum. The Matrix also provides an historical context by indicating some of external drivers and prevailing environmental management themes along the timeline with the tools.
