Our inaugural January meetings will bring you together with your peers to help shape ILTA’s work on behalf of the industry in 2021. Join us online via the Zoom meeting platform for the new EHS&S Committee meetings on January 11-14, 2021. We will highlight new and ongoing environmental issues and regulations, and discuss terminal safety, sustainable terminal operations, pipelines, marine terminals, chemical security and cybersecurity, as well as the outlook for all of these issues in the new Biden administration. There will also be plenty of opportunities to discuss COVID-19 responses and compare notes with your industry peers.

January 11, 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET | EHS&S C
Mike Santee, Citgo Petroleum | EHS&S Committee Chair

Summary:  ILTA is launching a new, Board-directed initiative for 2021 to support member companies that are working to develop Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria and reporting.  Meeting participants will hear from an expert on ESG criteria with experience working in the tank and terminal sector.  Following this presentation, a roundtable discussion will allow members to share their company’s own experiences – and challenges – with developing and implementing ESG criteria for best results.  Common needs identified from this session will help ILTA determine its workplan for the ESG initiative.


January 12, 2:00-4:00 ET | Environment Subcommittee
Jay Leduc, Sprague & Keith Ocheski, Buckeye | Environmental Subcommittee Co-Chairs

Summary:  While ESG criteria are intended to apply throughout multiple enterprise elements, in practice a significant portion of the responsibility for developing and tracking ESG criteria falls on environmental compliance professionals.  The Environment Committee will continue the conversation initiated in the full committee meeting and build out the specific tasks that ILTA can usefully perform to help members fill out the “E” in ESG reporting.  Additionally, the committee will provide guidance to ILTA staff in the development of a “member toolkit” that member companies can draw from to support their education and outreach efforts to their community stakeholders and local officials.
