Director, Environmental, Health & Safety
What does operational excellence mean in today's world? Is responsibly managing your company's resources and supply chain enough? The principles of operational excellence are deeply rooted in the culture and day-to-day operations of many companies today, including those in the oil & gas industry. Companies are continually striving to improve the quality of their products and services, eliminating anything that doesn't add value, and reducing overall costs. However, in today's world, operational excellence stretches beyond just managing your resources responsibly, it's about creating long-term value for society. It's not about making a quick buck. It' about developing a sustainable relationship between our businesses and the communities in which we operate. When companies look for partners, they're looking for organizations that are similarly committed to excellence in operations and EHS performance. Today, operational excellence is a win/win for not only companies, but the environment and communities. Sheryl Corrigan, Director of EH&S at Koch Industries, Inc. will share her company's approach to operational excellence and how it's helped create shared value and significantly reduces environmental impact in communities where is operates.
