Opening Keynote: How Climbing Mount Everest Helped Me to Be a Better EHS Leader

As the first African American to successfully scale Mt. Everest, Sophia Danenberg's story is one of extraordinary discipline and determination.

She will share her experiences with you and explain how she incorporated her lessons from the summit into her EHS strategy role.

Session 1: Leveraging the Best Practices in Safety Strategy

ISO 45001 and Z10 standards are driving a shift in health and safety programs from hazard identification and mitigation to a management systems approach that considers risk, severity and uncertainty. Meanwhile, many corporate safety programs are focusing on serious injury and fatality prevention (SIF) and experts continue to debate the virtues of behavior-based safety (BBS) and the newer approach, human and organizational performance (HOPs). As new ideas and approaches to reducing injuries and illnesses emerge, how do you leverage the best thinking to create a safety strategy that will deliver winning results? This session will examine how different companies set their safety strategies and performance metrics, what management approaches they employed and provide insight on the most difficult nuts to crack.

Session 6: Finding Hidden Value in Your Environmental Liability Portfolio

Given that EHS&S is becoming more entwined with corporate risk, companies are starting to think more strategically about their portfolio of EHS liabilities, including legacy operational sites. In some cases, they have been able to identify innovative ways to turn traditional liability risk into an enterprise opportunity. This session will focus on examples of approaches taken by companies that have been effective in either mitigating, or completely addressing, these legacy liability concerns when considering their EHS portfolios.

There is no shortage of technological solutions available to help EHS&S professionals collect data; however, once they have implemented the technology and collected the results, how can these leaders sort, analyze and use the data collected to produce actionable business intelligence? This session will look at how innovative tools and processes are used to improve regulatory compliance, integrate EHS&S into existing work streams, advance fleet safety, and move toward predictive analytics.

Keynote: Championing Sustainability Into Organizations at Every Stage

Together, business and sustainability have the power to drive and inspire business purpose and meaningful sustainability impacts. Targets and improvements on energy, waste and water are common; while these are necessary fundamentals, will they solve our global climate crisis? The time has come to see sustainability as the catalyst for business growth, resiliency and leadership, instead of a "nice-to-have." This lens will inspire and benefit profitable growth, attract and retain the best employees, and ensure license to operate across markets and industries.

 

This session highlights different companies' quests toward deeper purpose and sustainability integration — internally and externally — by exploring hurdles overcome, actions taken, and movement from values to impact. Attendees will come away with insights about incremental and transformational opportunities to leverage their efforts as EHS&S professionals in shifting their own organization's sustainability paradigm.

Session 21: Show Me the Money: Communicating Your Successes in Reducing EHS Costs

EHS&S teams perform very specific functions that save corporations money in the short- and long-term; however, the perception of EHS&S as a cost center remains. Many EHS&S professionals have difficulty illustrating how their programs and strategies are crucial to the bottom line. Join this session to hear specific, replicable examples from EHS&S leaders on how they calculated and communicated cost savings on various EHS projects and demonstrated the value their teams have added to their organizations.

Keynote: Global Citizenship — Change Your Mind, Change Your World

National Geographic Explorer Chris Bashinelli, using real-life visual examples from the slums of Haiti to the fields of Uganda to the Mongolian Steppe, will illustrate how the key to productivity, meaning and connection lies in transforming not our external conditions, but our internal ones.

 

Hear Chris explain how Global Citizenship, using our everyday work and lives as a vehicle to grow inwardly, helps us become the best version of ourselves. When we embody the qualities of a Global Citizen — presence, empathy and inspiration — then we can truly inspire those around us.

 

With the mindset of the Global Citizen, every challenge in our work and lives — from a disagreement with a coworker to the loss of someone we love — becomes fuel for us to grow inwardly and reach our potential. It begins with realizing we already have everything we need to be happy right now. You'll leave this session with a better understanding of the Global Citizen concept and how it can help you.
