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

Session 2: How to Effectively Communicate EHS&S Risk to the C-Suite

EHS&S programs and initiatives often compete against each other's priorities for financial resources; however, unaddressed EHS&S risks can be costly to corporations. To effectively mitigate and manage EHS&S risk, industry leaders need to understand and assess corporate risk thresholds. They then must have strategies to communicate those risks succinctly to non-EHS&S leaders. This will allow the Executive team to fully understand potential negative consequences of not appropriately addressing EHS&S risk. This session will provide EHS&S leaders with strategies to help effectively communicate EHS&S risk with everyone from the non-EHS&S decisionmakers all the way to the front line/facility level.

Does your company have a process for assessing climate risk?

This session will look at examples of how EHS leaders have performed a climate risk assessment and what concrete actions they took because of those efforts. It will provide EHS leaders who have facilities or assets at risk for weather-related disasters with valuable insights on how to identify and communicate that risk effectively within their business and build a resiliency plan that will reduce downtime.

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.

This panel discussion will share tips, strategies and examples of ways to approach both due diligence and post-merger integration and highlight things to watch out for as you navigate the process.

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.
