Environment, health and safety

The compliance, productivity and operational issues in managing environment, health and safety (EHS) risks have become broader and more complex. It is now recognized that managing EHS risks can have a positive impact on workplace productivity and financial performance.

What EY can do for you

EY teams can help clients reduce the risks and consequence of adverse impacts on EHS, and support clients as they make strategic and operational decisions that can help drive effective productivity outcomes and positive employee engagement.

Through deep knowledge and subject-matter experience across the EHS spectrum, EY professionals can support organizations with:

  • Strategy setting and development
  • Organizational behavior and culture change
  • Management system development
  • EHS audits and reporting
  • EHS risks and controls
  • EHS compliance management

EY teams are focused on guiding clients to help improve EHS performance. The teams help prioritize the focus of the EHS program and how it links to the business. This can help clients unlock the potential of EHS to create value rather than being perceived simply as a cost center.

EY EHS services include helping clients transform business processes to help reduce risk and lower costs. This can result in an enhanced EHS strategy, a more balanced and integrated risk focus, and the integration of technology and advanced analytics that can ultimately lead to increased revenue.

EHS Maturity Model

The EY EHS Maturity Model can help assess the maturity of an EHS risk management program and identify recommendations for program improvements across multiple dimensions (e.g., strategy; people; leadership and governance; assurance and reporting, risk and opportunity; systems and structures; and technology).
