EHMI develops solutions and provides leadership for projects spanning all areas of environmental safety, health, and sustainability with a sound-science, value-neutral approach. Like the issues themselves, EHMI has evolved with the times by adapting its skills and knowledge base to best manage and meet contemporary concerns.
Always central to these solutions is an understanding that there is a natural alignment between environmental concerns and the business interests that drive the global economy. Historically, EHMI has developed effective and long-lasting solutions that are inclusive to all parties. For thirty years, EHMI has clarified the alignment between financial interest and the health and security of people and the environment.
EHMI is spearheading a national collaborative effort that will help businesses, communities and individuals respond to the fast-growing national problem of indoor mold growth. EHMI is also at the forefront of developing easy-to-use consumer education materials for Emergency Readiness and Homeland Security such as the Emergency Readiness and Homeland Security wheel, now available for purchase through Environmental Health and Security Publishing, EHMI’s commercial venue.
Since its founding in 1979, EHMI has fostered consensus and communication among diverse interests – corporate, government, military, community, and educational – by gathering people around one table to craft practical solutions to complex environmental, safety and health issues. From the early days of hazardous waste regulation, litigation and cleanup to the more subtle and pervasive issues like lead poisoning and mold-related health hazards, EHMI has served as arbiter, problem-solver, trainer, and educator. Through the 1980s and 1990s, EHMI has equipped businesses and industries with the knowledge and tools to deal with impending federal and state regulations regarding hazardous chemicals and emergency preparedness.
Today, EHMI continues to provide research and mediation under the directive that global sustainability is critical to the bottom line, whether in the face of pandemic, global warming, or future hazards yet to come.
