Next Generation Challenges Require Next Generation Solutions

New disclosure realities, climate risk management, broader stakeholder scrutiny, increased pressure for operational efficiencies — these challenges and more are facing today's EHS&S leaders.


To help EHS&S leaders skillfully meet new demands and long-standing expectations, this year's TECH22 Conference will examine technologies and strategies that address your most urgent needs and shed new light on persistent issues.


From building a data and reporting infrastructure for ESG and integrating data across organizational silos to deploying emerging technologies for new data insights, turnkey compliance and risk mitigation, our robust agenda will explore the software, innovations, and technology designed to drive EHS&S program success.


The 2022 Program will consist of three content areas:

  • ESG Performance Tracking, Management & Reporting

Enabling Global Engagement with Mixed Reality

As more and more EHS&S leaders explore emerging technologies, one that is on the top of everyone's list is Immersive Solutions/Mixed Reality. This technology provides users and employees a simulated hands-on experience. This session will explore how Mixed Reality improves productivity and provides accurate visual instructions and overlays, substituting the need for fixed, physical manuals and computer workstations. The speakers will discuss the use of Mixed Reality in the workplaces and how with a collaborative effort, your team can become even more productive by leveraging the benefits of Mixed Reality and how it can transform the way data is captured and analyzed in real-time.

EHS Data Metrics at the Operational Level Impact Management Reporting and KPIs

Like many companies, Denbury was managing their EHS program with multiple homegrown solutions which limited their efficiency and ability to easily report on KPIs and trends. In reviewing EHS solutions, Denbury determined they needed a flexible system that could align with their workflow process and fit their data structure with a smooth legacy data migration, which is why they turned to Perillon. The solution has given Denbury the tools needed to easily align to their existing management process. During this session, attendees will learn about the easy transition between the old homegrown system and new cloud-based platform, and how it has provided Denbury management with the data needed to quickly review KPIs, trends, etc. Speakers will discuss how being able to capture this data — along with an intuitive ease of use experience — all assists in the future of ESG metrics as well.

Strong ESG Performance Depends on Data Quality

Management and performance improvement of sustainability data is key to start ESG reporting and achieve ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) goals. To reduce the risk of rule violations and consequential financial penalties, organizations need to accurately quantify emissions baseline -- and solve carbon accounting challenges. Ferguson is working with SpheraCloud Corporate Sustainability software to focus on different key areas to improve their sustainability performance. Come to this session to hear how automating their data collection company-wide — including their Scope 1, 2 emissions, water and waste, allowed Ferguson to move from a reporting focus to more of a performance management approach, with known key areas for their sustainability initiatives.

Digitalizing the Field-to-Lab Data Workflow for a Global Remediation Portfolio

When bp and ddms undertook an ambitious initiative to fully digitalize the field-to-lab workflow, the objectives were to centralize bp's data and improve efficiency and accuracy of information gathering and data transmission. With over 2000 sites and hundreds of users, the team knew this would be a significant effort requiring thoughtful engagement with stakeholders. Come to this session to learn valuable lessons from this experience relating to stakeholder engagement and requirements for gathering to enact such a significant change with a large, multi-site organization. The speakers in this session will also discuss the process to build and standardize a digital field-to-lab data workflow, address stakeholder challenges and share lessons learned with our audience.

Data Management for Embodied Carbon Emissions from Construction

In 2020, the Port Authority announced the implementation of a Clean Construction Program, which will reduce carbon emissions throughout the design and construction processes. As part of this effort, a reliable software system was needed to track the source and destination of construction materials on dozens of simultaneous active projects and calculate embodied carbon emissions from the use of these materials. In this session, attendees will learn how the software solution was defined, developed, and deployed, and how the Port Authority has used this application in its mission to reduce construction emissions.


  • Dorian Bailey, Chief of Science and Sustainable Construction; Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

Applying Sports Management Technology to Reduce Injuries in the Workplace

Reducing workplace injuries is one of the most challenging aspects for EHS&S leaders. While EHS&S professionals understand the value of ergonomics optimizations to help with reducing injuries, they lack the time, budget, and resources to fully implement, track, and follow through on injury prevention programs; this is further compounded with a scattered workforce working multiple shifts. This session will feature a case study that will reveal how EHS leaders can take advantage of breakthrough technology to prevent workplace injuries, in a way that is not only scalable but also affordable.
