Helping Risk Managers Communicate the Value of Environmental Due Diligence

Manage webcast
Rick Ferguson, Brian Ginter & John Rybak
Environmental risk managers at banks understand why due diligence is important to protect the bank from collateral devaluation and liability exposure, but how well do they communicate this value up the chain? Environmental due diligence is important, along with evaluating a borrower’s creditworthiness and getting an appraisal done, but only in the broader context of originating loans. The difficulty in bridging the gap between environmental risk managers and loan officers/senior management was identified as one of the key challenges faced by risk management professionals, particularly at community banks.

This webinar will provide lenders with actionable intell to help them educate senior management and loan officers to foster a greater understanding across the bank of the importance in understanding environmental risk and the liability the bank can face if environmental due diligence is not properly addressed. Join us for this webinar as seasoned insiders selected from the ranks of a large bank, a regional bank and a community bank share their experiences in communicating the value of environmental due diligence internally at their institutions.

Panelists:

-Rick Ferguson, P.G., Chief Environmental Compliance Officer, SVP, U.S. Bank
-Brian Ginter, VP & CCIM, Appraisal/Environmental Group, Burke & Herbert Bank
-John Rybak, SVP Environmental Risk Manager, BB&T

  • One of the most influential figures in the workplace is the front-line supervisor, who plays a pivotal role in determining what gets done, how it gets done and what gets ignored. Measuring supervisor safety performance, therefore, is critical to ensure the processes designed to build and sustain safety excellence are being completed in a quality way.

    Drawing on practical research findings, Caterpillar Safety Services Senior Consultant for Australia, Jenny Krasny, will explain the process of identifying measures that motivate supervisors to lead zero-incident performance on the front line.

    Learning Objectives:
    •Explore the measures that matter in a culture of safety excellence
    •Understand the supervisor’s role in creating and sustaining safety excellence
    •Identify the sources of feedback that drive excellent supervisor performance
  • Drivers are often uncomfortable with the idea of GPS vehicle tracking. When they learn that GPS tracking is about improving their productivity, safety and job security—not monitoring their every move—they’re far more likely to support the solution.

    During this webinar you will discover how to overcome concerns by communicating how GPS vehicle tracking can:

    - Protect drivers in unsafe or remote areas
    - Defend drivers during customer disputes
    - Enable help to respond quicker to roadside emergencies
    - Reduce accidents by improving unsafe driver behaviors
    - Exonerate drivers from false claims

  • Among the top challenges lenders face today is the need to meet higher expectations set by the OCC and the Federal Reserve governing the use of third-party vendors. While the guidelines were released over a year ago, there is still confusion about what institutions should be doing.

    One thing, however, is certain. Effective vendor management takes resources, and many institutions are finding it necessary to add staff and/or technology to help with the cause, particularly smaller institutions. The regulators have made it clear, vendor management is not just a one-time assessment, but is an ongoing process, and monitoring vendors long term is as important as the initial due diligence.

    EDR is pleased to host a webinar on this timely topic on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Scott Roller, former head of vendor management at Citigroup, will provide clarity on the new regulations and help break down regulator expectations into easy-to-understand terms. Roller will explore key dimensions that attendees can use as the foundation for building out their own robust vendor management oversight program, from initial vendor risk classification all the way through ensuring adequate executive engagement in vendor management.

    Attendees will learn best practices for satisfying regulators with this educational workshop, including answers to the following:
    • What does the latest regulatory guidance on vendor management require?
    • What are the biggest headaches banks are facing in complying with them?
    • What advice is recommended for smaller banks struggling with limited manpower/resources?
    • What are bank examiners looking for during audits?
    • What are the latest best practices for policies and procedures?
    • How are banks coping with the need to track and monitor vendors?
    • What are the most common shortcomings that audits reveal?

    Attendees will also receive a free copy of a white paper on vendor oversight and the cost of compliance.

  • In 2011 Caterpillar’s North Little Rock, AR, facility, where earthmoving Motor Graders are produced, had a Recordable Injury Frequency (RIF) rate of 5.11 with 20 recordable injuries. Of 68 manufacturing facilities in the enterprise, this facility ranked number 65.

    When the facility leadership committed to making a change, they started by listening closely to the front-line workforce – the employees closest to the job hazards – to understand what was motivating risky behaviors.

    The discovery has fueled a transformational journey to safety accountability that drove the RIF rate down to 0.58 by the end of 2014. Now the facility is a safety performance benchmark for organizations inside and outside the Caterpillar enterprise.

    Facility Operations Manager Paul Rivera joins Justin Ganschow, the facility’s former EHS Department Supervisor (now a Caterpillar Safety Services consultant) and Todd Efird, Senior Safety Consultant, for this one-hour presentation.

    You will learn:
    •How to apply cultural assessment results to focus improvement efforts
    •A formula for leveraging the skills and experience of employees to build proactive safety processes
    •How to develop performance measures that reflect the presence of safety activities (not just the absence of incidents)
    •Tools for increasing employee engagement and workplace positivity through effective recognition

  • Connected homes are prime examples of innovative applications of technology meant to enable enriched lifestyle experiences for consumers.

It is critical to understand that cyber threats require collective responsibility and accountability sharing from all stakeholders involved.

    This briefing will deliberate upon the issue of cybersecurity as it pertains to the connected home environment. An expert panel comprising members of Frost & Sullivan, connected home technology leaders, and a consumer privacy advocate will provide advice and opinions with regard to addressing this disruptive trend. Industry participants will learn how to address the issue of cyber breach and maintain continued interest in living the connected experience.
