A product, service, or program has strategic value when it is designed or managed to drive an organization toward its core values and long-term goals. The strategic value of EHS programs lies in the contribution of such programs to competitive advantage, profitability, innovation, productivity, and other goals that are viewed as essential to the long-term health and well-being of an organization.
