Overview

The AFPM Environmental Conference focuses on environmental regulatory and policy issues at the facility level. The sessions are designed to address the impacts of various environmental regulations on refineries and petrochemical operations and to provide compliance solutions for facilities. Environmental representatives from refinery and petrochemical plants and  service organizations attend, providing an excellent opportunity to network with peers  who share similar problems, challenges, and opportunities in the refining and petrochemical industries.

ESG Issues – Pre-Event Workshop
Sunday, October 23 – 1:00 PM-5:00 PM 

How do you align with and help your company deliver on its ESG goals? Join us in New Orleans for our half-day preconference workshop entirely dedicated to helping you better support delivery of your company’s ESG targets.

Environment, health and safety (EHS) professionals are uniquely positioned to address day-to-day challenges with ESG projects and reporting. These four diverse panels will not only cover data integrity and permitting of new ESG projects, they'll also speak to trends in ESG demands that will require the expertise of the EHS team to address. Check the agenda for speaker lineup.
