    • Saving Water (and Money!) in Manufacturing and the Supply Chain Saving Water (and Money!) in Manufacturing and the Supply Chain Liese Dallbauman, PhD, LEED AP, Senior Mgr. Water Stewardship, PepsiCo Recorded: Apr 21 2010 8:00 pm UTC 38 mins
    • PepsiCo’s four-stage ReCon (resource conservation) program focuses on understanding energy and water use at the plant level and beyond. The first stage of ReCon focuses on understanding resource utilization at the plant level. The ReCon toolkit includes a Water Profiler, which identifies and quantifies major water users and their associated costs. Another component of the toolkit is an online Diagnostic, which determines whether best practices are being followed. The Profiler and Diagnostic are used together to identify and prioritize conservation projects.

      ReCon Water was introduced at six PepsiCo-owned manufacturing sites and one supply chain partner site in 2009. The savings opportunities identified at those sites totaled over one billion liters of water, corresponding to energy and water savings of nearly $725,000.

      This presentation will describe the ReCon process and the ReCon Water toolkit, as well as examples of the savings found at snack and beverage plants.

    • Water Neutrality:Global Water Stewardship for Largest Beverage Co Water Neutrality:Global Water Stewardship for Largest Beverage Co Denise Knight, The Coca-Cola Company Recorded: Apr 21 2010 3:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    • Water is the main ingredient in all of The Coca-Cola Company's beverages and is essential to its manufacturing processes. Water also has broad implications for the company’s supply chain as a key component in the production of sugar, citrus, coffee and other ingredients. It is also vital to the sustainability of the communities that the company serves. Reducing water scarcity, enhancing water quality and addressing the water needs of local communities are direct and vital business concerns.

      Over the last ten years, the company's evolution in water stewardship has been significant: from a major reputation crisis in 2002 involving communities and government authorities in southern India to a 2007 call for corporate “water neutrality,” TCCC has developed and continues to evolve one of the more sophisticated water stewardship programs in the private sector.

      However, true sustainability as it relates to water will involve more than “neutralizing” the volume of water that the company uses. This is because fluctuations in the amount and quality of water available to a given community or ecosystem play an important role in sustaining the diversity and proper functioning of river ecosystems and watersheds.

      This presentation will profile Coca-Cola's experience over the past ten years providing a glimpse into the company’s commitments and an appreciation of the complexity of true water stewardship:

      • Plant performance (water use efficiency, water quality, wastewater treatment)
      • Watershed protection (source assessment and protection)
      • Sustainable communities (helping enable access to clean drinking water and sanitation)
      • Global awareness and action (helping mobilize the international community to drive global awareness and action to address water challenges)

    • One of the most critical assets for a telecommunications service provider is their data. As ever-increasing customer, product and network data volumes pour through the organizational networks worldwide, it becomes more difficult to maintain, control and derive value out of them.

      Some challenges include:
      • Inaccurate customer records and reporting
      • Duplicate product information and mismatched assets
      • Rising customer dissatisfaction due to call center inefficiencies

      These challenges not only cause system inefficiencies, but also have an impact on the revenue and bottom-line for the provider. Join our speakers to understand how these challenges can be overcome and how the data can be created, maintained and analyzed to enhance its value through master data management (MDM).

      Tech Mahindra has built an accelerator using Informatica’s market-leading multi-domain MDM solution and we will demonstrate the system to show how telecoms can ensure that the consistency, accuracy, stewardship and accountability of data is kept intact across the organization.

    • The many challenges facing healthcare providers today have one thing in common: a relentless demand for more and better integrated information. Firms of all shapes and sizes today are confronted with the question of how well they are leveraging data and healthcare analytics to transform their organizations. Unfortunately, traditional data warehousing alone is not enough to support the advanced, dynamic analytics that are required to improve quality and lower costs of care. Business imperatives such as new business models, patient-centered care, and population health combined with disruptive technology trends such as big data, cloud and predictive analytics require a nimble data management infrastructure.

      Ongoing research by the International Institute for Analytics (IIA) points to an increase in the number of healthcare providers that are intentionally building and funding analytics and data programs.

    • Ethical Leadership: How Internal Audit Can Influence the Tone at the Top Ethical Leadership: How Internal Audit Can Influence the Tone at the Top Don Levonius Recorded: Nov 18 2014 4:30 pm UTC 120 mins
    • According to IIA guidance, internal auditors are charged with monitoring organizational ethics and assessing whether management policies, procedures, and practices support ethical operations. And while management usually seeks to set, promote, and perpetuate an ethical climate, some leaders seem either motivated by self-interest or so focused on other operational priorities that they overlook their obligation to steward organizational ethics.

      What can internal audit do to articulate this risk of unethical behavior? How can internal audit influence the tone at the top? How can internal auditors persuade management to see the value proposition for ethical leadership? This webinar addresses these questions and equips auditors, audit directors, and CAEs to make a compelling argument as to how ethical leadership drives bottom-line results.

      By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

      -Compare contrasting views of behavioral ethics
      -Differentiate between moral and conditioned honesty
      -Examine rationalizations commonly indicative of moral disengagement
      -Explain why ethical stewardship is a primary leadership responsibility
      -Correlate ethical leadership to organizational results
      -Formulate a compelling argument in favor of an ethical tone at the top
