Global Alliance (GOAL)
Our Global Alliance (GOAL) is a cornerstone of the convergence business model. The GOAL ensures our clients always get the right team to assist them with their EHS management dilemmas.
convergence conceived the GOAL to meet the twofold challenges we perceive in the maturing EHS management profession that affects both industry and consulting practitioners alike.
- The first challenge - The continuing expansion of the number of disciplines or fields included within the universe of responsibility for "environmental management", such as social responsibility, safety, and sustainability.
- The second challenge - Excellence in our profession now requires we look to other fields for guidance in seeking solutions, such as the Quality profession to set the framework for an environmental management system, or the Accounting profession for principles to report sustainable performance.
These challenges are formidable for the traditional consultancy that faces the constant pressure to utilize internal staff. The convergence business model and company structure, in contrast, has been consciously designed to incorporate the interdisciplinary resources necessary to overcome these challenges, and bring excellence to our clients while controlling costs.
The expertise of our GOAL members extends our capabilities far beyond the talents of our core company members. In our four major services areas we have a wealth of talent and resources from which to build our unique teams and consult our clients. The company principals, all senior EHS management professionals with extensive international experience, seamlessly manage our project teams developed from our Global Alliance, as well as contribute their technical expertise when appropriate.
