Health & Environment Commission
Chair: Christoph MOCKLINGHOFF (MARSH)
Since July 2019, this commission, chaired by Christoph Mocklinghoff, Environmental risks Director of MARSH, has launched a reflection on the topic: The evolution of products and services: what inclusion of environmental health challenges?
The commission has been working since 2013 on the overall subject of acceptability of technologies and projects, and on the dialogue with stakeholders. Its work provided material for the Environment and Industry symposium of 15 October 2013 and in 2015 it hopes to publish a work on the business/society dialogue.
The commission has also set up another working group:
MEASURING AND MANAGING WATER FOOTPRINT Working Group
Using the members’ practices as a starting point, this group works on methods for calculating the amount of water the companies use and/or dispose of. Members swap notes on their water resource management practices: reducing consumption, water stress management plan, etc.
Issues relating to water quality are also tackled, in terms of the companies’ procedures to improve testing and processing of their wastewater before it is disposed of in the environment.
The commission’s work culminated in the publication “Measuring and managing water” in April 2015.
