Program Details - Finding Solutions, Leading Forward
Track 1 - Sustainability in a Changing Environment
Whether we're talking about the physical environment or the business environment, both are changing. The sessions in this track will examine how EHS and sustainability leaders are preparing their businesses for issues like climate change and water scarcity. We'll also explore how corporate leaders are continuing to drive sustainability performance in an ever-changing global business climate by leveraging partnerships and internal resources.
Track 2 - Optimizing EHS Performance
Optimizing is defined as making something as effective, perfect, or useful as possible. We are constantly challenged to optimize all aspects of our programs and ensure continuous improvement in even the core aspects of EHS management and compliance. The sessions in this track will look at how companies are improving their programs, through the use of sheer management creativity, emerging technologies, and partnerships inside or outside the business.
Track 3 - Applying a Risk Lens
While EHS managers have traditionally managed operational risks like compliance, process safety and chemical hazards, they are now being challenged to consider and communicate EHS risk from a strategic prospective. The sessions in this track will explore risk through both an operational and strategic lens. It will delve into risk from the perspective of process, product, emerging regulatory and non-regulatory risks.
Track 4 - Managing and Developing EHS Teams
Our organizations are only as strong as our people. These sessions will focus on how companies are developing their EHS staffs and ensuring they are prepared to attract and train the next generation of leaders in our field. It will also offer insights on how to manage multi-generational, diverse teams as well as create training that's engaging and effective.
The full 2015 program agenda will be coming soon!
