Using Business Intelligence Tools for Environmental Performance Improvement

Many organizations already utilize Business Intelligence (BI) tools to find actionable insights in their health and safety data to improve worker safety and decrease incidents. Environmental professionals can also take advantage of these off the shelf tools (that your organization probably already has) to find areas for improvement in their domain. Using BI tools to visualize environmental data can help you build confidence in its accuracy, identify areas for operational improvement and benchmark your environmental performance against your peers and competitors or even across sites. This presentation will showcase how you can leverage BI tools to quickly verify environmental performance, flag potential inaccuracies in your data, identify opportunities for improvement and strengthen your overall approach reporting.

CHS Inc.: An Integrated Approach to Chemical Management

Wanting to leverage data and breakdown silos, CHS Inc. sought out to manage key areas of their compliance program for their refineries, pipelines and terminals. After a long search, they deployed the Enablon platform. A critical piece of their success was to make sure they could integrate their safety data from Verisk 3E. Come to this session to hear how CHS Inc. benefited from collaboration with multiple companies to develop their current digital compliance management program.

Hess Corporation Demonstrating Enviance

With onshore and offshore exploration and production operations across 4 continents, Hess Corporation  needed a way to accurately capture safety information, from onshore and offshore users. They needed a way for users to enter data in real-time regardless of access to an internet connection. With the use of Enviance, information from observations are quickly integrated into daily and weekly safety meetings so employees are made aware of learnings and hot-spots. Come to this session to learn about why standardization is important to overall success, key strategies for engaging all employees – even those in remote areas and how leveraging dashboards has shaped safety culture at Hess.


  • Kathleen Walsh, Senior Advisor; Hess Corp.


Developing an Interactive Maps-based BI/Visualization Tool

With multifaceted business systems and operations, Delta Global Services (DGS), has established robust processes for compliance assurance and incident management – including a digitized, mobile-centric inspection program used at sites nationwide for compliance and inspection activities. While the program has been extremely successful in driving identification and closure of non-conformances, DGS was also searching for a way to manage the vast amounts of data being collected across sites for expanded operational insight and intelligence. DGS partnered with Gensuite to develop a new Google Maps-based solution augmented with integrated Tableau ® Analytics. The new solution embeds GPS tracking within the inspection process to allow sites to visualize "hot spots" by inspector, inspection checklist, area on site, and other dimensions. DGS now has an integrated data analytics solution that enables both operational and EHS leaders to perform rapid drill-down and visualization of inspection program findings.

AT&T Demonstrating Datamaran

Materiality analysis is time-consuming and labor-intensive – plus there are many factors that can jeopardize the accuracy of the analysis. But what if you could leverage neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) technique to scan 75,000+ corporate reports, company filings and regulations? Imagine the time and resource that could be allocated to data analysis rather than data collection. Come to this session to see how AT&T utilized Datamaran, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to benchmark, develop materiality analysis, develop annual sustainability and integrated reporting, assess enterprise risk and management, which ultimately guided their corporate strategy.

Adopting EHS Technology for Today and the Next 100 Years

This session will showcase the strategic approach of Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW), one of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world, to equip all employees with powerful but easy-to-use technology, which enabled them to become key stakeholders in driving safety, globally. The company also inculcated a culture of adopting and keeping up with cutting-edge technology, from working towards autonomous vehicles to adopting the latest solutions for operational safety. The current EHS management software solution, from ProcessMAP Corporation, enables BMW to consolidate and streamline various processes that help in proactively managing EHS risks through leading Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as observations, open and closed CAPAs, etc. in real-time and on-demand basis.

INVISTA demonstrating RealTime Apps

As a producer of chemicals, polymers, fabrics and fibers, INVISTA was seeking a highly customizable way to digitize 200+ environmental inspections, automate air reporting utilizing historian data, and create a waste tracking/management system. They wanted a solution that was sustainable, had embedded manpower to maintain the system, track and secure data and require minimal resources to develop. To support this effort, they turned to RealTime Apps & 200 mobile tablets and now have visibility, workflows and notifications to cover all essential waste processes as well as an informative Air Emissions Dashboard. Come to this session to see how through IoT & blockchain technology INVISTA was able to leverage a sustainable solution to improve their waste and air programs.

TOTAL demonstrating ENFOS

Previously relying on spreadsheets, databases and ad-hoc processes, TOTAL developed a data governance strategy designed to mitigate significant gaps, which were identified through internal auditing of project and financial controls. To support this new data governance strategy, TOTAL turned to ENFOS initially for automating and standardizing the financial processes and controls associated with environmental provision management and related project management activities. The implementation has since expanded into remediation compliance management and environmental data. Come to this session to hear how TOTAL has been able to deploy this technology to over 90 remediation and seamlessly integrate with TOTAL's ERP system.


  • Rick Hagar, Business Coordinator; TOTAL Refining & Chemicals


Koch Fertilizer demonstrating ehsAI

Tracking regulations is a key part to a successful compliance management program – but what if you could leverage artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to extract regulatory requirements from permits? What if any user can populate compliance requirements in an EHS Software system or compliance calendar in mere minutes? What if a complex NPDS or Title 5 permit could be processed in under 2 minutes? This session will showcase how Koch Fertilizer progressed from a small initial use of ehsAI to broader acceptance. Attendees will gain insight into the use of AI in an industrial organization that has any array of EHS&S challenges, how leveraging AI can lead to massive cost savings and how ehsAI can be integrated into any environmental management system.


  • Kevan Reardon, Environmental Engineer Lead; Koch Fertilizer LLC

Lehigh Hanson Demonstrating Mapistry

As a market leader in building and industrial materials, Lehigh Hanson Inc. wanted to streamline their environmental program to increase staff efficiency, internalize more documentation and provide greater insights into the compliance lifecycle. Feeling the pressure of changing regulations, increased acquisitions and day to day challenges of industrial manufacturing time and cost savings they sought out an environmental software solution. After only 2-month implementation, the Mapistry environmental compliance platform was deployed in over 60 locations. This session will explore how Lehigh Hanson has been able to log inspection data, make real-time updates, and to centrally manage all of their compliance activities without having to worry about missing a deadline or becoming non-compliant.

Taking the Waste out of Waste with Shell

Shell has embarked on a new, global waste management program called "Take the Waste out of Waste," to standardize the waste management process across the company. To achieve these goals, Shell looked to The myCority mobile solution. Through this solution, waste can be created, containerized and uncontainerized. EHS professionals can easily track movements, asset availability, and waste shipments. This solution makes it easy to move containers, gain info via barcode, conduct weekly inspections, and report waste discrepancies from any device or location. Utlizing this data, Shell has been able to optimized costs of transport and ultimately 'taken the waste out of waste'.
