When you go home today, will there be clean water to drink? Will climate change cause a natural disaster to strike your home? Will some type of spill alter our landscape for years to come?

Think these scenarios will only happen somewhere else?
Think again.

More than 11 percent of the world’s population cannot access clean water at all, while the average person in The Woodlands, Texas, is using more than 68,000 gallons of water per year.

The National Academy of Sciences reports an average of 27 oil spills occur every day somewhere in the world, and the Valdez spill doesn’t even make the list of the top 30 all-time largest. In 2012, there were 905 natural catastrophes worldwide, 93 percent of these being weather-related disasters. This figure was about 100 above the 10-year annual average for these type events.

Disturbing statistics? They disturbed us enough to write Environment: 24/7 to show how you, your family, co-workers and your company can dramatically improve the future health of Planet Earth...before it’s too late to make a difference in our world.


Are you recognizing the need to increase environmental stewardship within your organization? Could an environmental incident significantly impact your bottom line? Or maybe the organization has a good environmental record but you know more could be done.

You have limited resources to invest on even the most critical issues; therefore, you want to be sure you are focused on the right ones. Are employees aware of their behavior and the impact it can have on the environment, or have they grown complacent over time? Are supervisors tolerating behaviors that could put the environment at risk to achieve increased operational performance? Or is senior management unintentionally sending the wrong messages?

Whether reading in the board room or on the front line, Environment 24/7 helps address all of these questions in a simple to read format that is sure to make a difference in both your professional and personal life.
