In-person Summit | UK — June, 6–7

Verdantix HSE Summit EMEA: HSE Resilience In The Age Of ESG

Today, businesses are facing a combination of increased volatility, budgetary pressures, climate risk and the challenge of meeting ambitious ESG and net zero goals. Building on the vital role played by HSE functions in helping their businesses navigate the pandemic, those same teams will now be expected to take a lead in ensuring corporate resilience as their firms transition to a harsher and more tumultuous operating environment. As a result, they are setting new priorities, redefining their strategies and developing new ways of influencing their businesses.

This summit will provide HSE leaders with an understanding of the new priority areas for HSE functions, share insights into how firms are responding to these trends, and provide actionable guidance on how technology can enable you to design and manage a function that is fit for the future.

Developing A 2025 Vision For Your HSE Function

Drawing on leading experts from a range of sectors, this panel will debate the medium to long-term future of the HSE function, answering key questions such as: how will the objectives for HSE change? What are the new priority areas for HSE? Which skills will we need to meet them? How will technology support HSE professionals accomplishing their goals?


Proof Points For The Value Of Total Worker Health Strategies

In a period of labour shortages creating a resilient and stable workforce is more important than ever before, and the appropriate and proper recording and managing of workers’ conditions ensures that workforces are working efficiently and productively. This session explores the occupational health software landscape, and addresses how to effectively collect, manage and communicate information that promotes worker wellness and ensures socially responsible business continuity in a changing environment.


Next Gen Risk Management: Moving Towards Proactive Safety

Firms are seeking to go beyond meeting regulatory requirements by leveraging technological advances to identify, predict and eliminate risks before they materialise as incidents. This session examines the growing applicability of AI and connected safety to HSE, and how it can be leveraged to deliver cost savings, enhanced HSE performance and time savings; as well as sharing actionable guidance for those seeking to initiate AI projects.

Advisory workshop

Best Practices For HSE Digital Strategy & Technology Selection

This session will leverage Verdantix expertise in running dozens of HSE software selection processes for corporates across the world. In this session, we will discuss how buying processes can be managed to ensure high-impact returns, and how to manage post-purchase programmes for effective deployment. We will share and discuss best practices, as well as steps to avoid that may lead to delays and reduced business value.


Frontline Workers: Innovative Ideas To Boost Safety Engagement

The growing prominence of sophisticated software solutions and real-time IoT devices is making the idea of highly interconnected operating platforms a practical reality. This session explores the business case for consolidating HSE and operational processes in a single software platform, in order to transform traditional HSE approaches and drive safety, quality, productivity gains and operational resilience.

Strengthening HSE Governance: Building Bridges With The CFO, COO and CSO

The changes brought about by Covid-19 and the ever-increasing requirements of ESG disclosures are fundamentally changing the role of HSE leaders, creating more touchpoints and dependencies with other corporate functions. This panel maps out the new stakeholder landscape for HSE professionals and discusses the opportunities for creating an HSE hub which delivers impact across the organization.


Upgrade HSE Data Quality To Prepare For Financial ESG Scrutiny

As ESG reporting becomes mandatory, firms will find that investors, lenders and board directors scrutinize a broader range of HSE and sustainability disclosures. This session will explore how technology can support HSE executives in capturing and reporting on HSEQ data that is trustworthy and provide best practices for creating a futureproof compliance framework that elevates the HSE function.


Carbon Management And Climate Risk: A Leadership Opportunity For HSE

Natural hazards increasingly knock linear infrastructure out of action, as well as triggering environmental spills and process safety events. As corporate leaders move from discussing long-term climate goals to mitigating the impact of extreme weather events, this session will discuss the issues caused by more intense natural hazards and provide a framework for developing an upgraded environmental risk management plan.
