Bob Mitchell

Sr. Director, Innovating for Performance & Sustainability, ConocoPhillips; Co‑chair, OSLI Management Committee

For over 25 years, Bob has been a passionate innovator in the oil and gas sector, and has worked tirelessly to improve the industry’s environmental performance and social responsibility. In particular, OSLI (Oil Sands Leadership Initiative)—the brainchild of Bob, Gord Lambert (Suncor) and the late Peter Dickey—is a collaborative effort among six of the largest future-focused oil sands developers in the country, all of whom are committed to dramatically enhancing their own corporate social responsibility practices. The improved efforts of these six leaders raise the average for the entire industry, and Bob has won the admiration of many of the opponents of oil sands development for his role in shaping those efforts.
