As a senior executive, I am very aware of the value of reputation and brand, and thus the absolute necessity to protect both from damage. There is nothing that will damage a brand like the negative press that can be received from an environmental or life / health damaging incident. Ensuring your company’s compliance to regulations is one way to avoid such an incident and the ensuing loss.
