International Masters Program for Managers helps entrepreneur re-examine core values

Methane is a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. “And studies tell us methane emissions are greatly underestimated,” says Lee Krywitsky (IMPM'18), whose Calgary-based company Safe Effective Technology works with the oil and gas industry to reduce emissions. Krywitsky started consulting after selling his manufacturing business, and McGill’s International Masters Program for Managers (IMPM) helped him make the leap. “It makes you consider your effect beyond improving shareholder value,” says Krywitsky in an interview with “My late father was a nuclear engineer that instilled in me a ‘ZeroMax’ mindset, zero harm to people and maximum safety. That was my goal throughout my career. But after taking the program, ZeroMax deepened to focus on zero leaks or emissions and maximum pipeline integrity, zero discrimination, and maximum inclusion.”
