“We are in a position with global warming, where we can’t go back in time or undo what have already done… but we can try to evolve technologies to move forward and make a better future for us all.”
“You can’t continue improving things if we are not learning together and improving together. […] Safety isn’t just safety, everybody contributes to safety and to quality as a team.”
