How do you comply with ever-changing environmental regulatory challenges (rules) and stay in business?
The larger the company the more difficult it is to find sustainable solutions that keep the organization in compliance, free from large regulatory fines or law suits, and still do business.
Environmental requirements for organizations are complex and constantly changing. In some states, California for one, you have to contend with federal rules, state rules, county or district rules, and city policies. Just figuring out which of these requirements actually apply to your organization is overwhelming.
Medium to large organizations have complex multi-functional departments that operate to produce results that are profitable. Each department, whether it is sales, marketing, purchasing, accounting, manufacturing, or facilities, has its own distinct mission and responsibility. Most of these functional groups do not cross the white spaces that divide them even to deal with organization-wide problems. But these no-man lands between groups is exactly the place to go to resolve environmental challenges.
Why? Because these white spaces are where environmental policies falter, where efficiencies are lost, money wasted, and problems left unresolved, where the difficulties of implementing an environmental procedure across a multi-functional organization can be surmounted.
Developing cross-functional teams which learn to work across the white spaces of the organization can provide multiple benefits and return on investment. ZMassociates has an approach which is unique and has proven to be effective at solving these challenges.
