Save-the-date for CSI Forum 2015
Achieving zero harm for your workforce, contractors & communities
13 & 14 October 2015; Cappadocia, TurkeyThe World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)'s Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) is delighted to announce its 9th annual forum meeting taking place in Cappadocia, Turkey on 13 & 14 October. The meeting this year will be hosted by Çimsa Cement, a leading player in the region who became a member of the initiative since late 2013.
WHAT is on the programme?Aiming to address health and safety (H&S) elements crucial to the cement industry, the event programme will engage the audience to interact with H&S experts in plenary sessions, breakout dialogues and with operations at the plant visit. The event will explore how a safety mindset can be embedded into the DNA of corporate culture to deliver change in employee behaviour, adjustments in the management system, and improved ways of interacting with external stakeholders.
Presentations will cover the challenges faced by the cement industry both globally and in specific localities. Together, we will look into possible solutions to help companies in jumping the gap between where they are now and where they want to be, i.e. zero harm to all. Through sharing of good practices, identifying root causes & fundamental issues, distinguishing what can be done by companies (individually or collectively at the CSI level) and clarifying what would require collaboration with stakeholders, we can build a safer and healthier workforce together.
WHO is coming?
- senior executives from CSI member companies
- international academia and experts from research institutions
- reputable authorities from standard organisation and leading H&S advocates
- representatives from (cement) trade associations
- government officials engaged in employee health & safety and other relevant areas
