When you source water at your facility, you consume energy in delivering that water and, conversely, when you source energy for your facility, there is water use embedded in that. As sourcing energy and water becomes a more common practice, companies must deal with the challenges. That’s the topic that will be explored by executives working hands-on in this area during the day-one workshop, The Challenge of Sourcing Energy & Water, at the Environmental Leader 2017 Conference & Energy Manager Summit in Denver in June.
Details of the workshop have been announced, including speakers Marco Ugarte, sustainability manager of MillerCoors, Jonathan Radtke, water sustainability program director of Coca-Cola, Fawn Bergen, global program manager – water and carbon footprint with Intel, and Josh Henretig, senior director of environmental sustainability with Microsoft.
Workshop attendees will learn:
- What a company’s realistic expectations should be as it looks forward to addressing the dual challenge of sourcing both water and energy.
- How big data and advanced tools like geospatial analytics can be applied to the process.
- What the correct approach to take to solve the interconnected issues that link energy, water and climate change.
At the Environmental Leader 2017 Conference & Energy Manager Summit, hundreds of leading energy, environment, EHS and sustainability management executives will come together to: hear new ways to tackle the issues, discover innovative technologies and learn about implementation practices used by leading companies; take away actionable steps to improve sustainability performance and reduce energy cost and usage; engage with hundreds of other decision-makers from industrial and commercial corporations that are leading the way.
