Description of Presentation

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) programs may seem like just recycled versions of sustainability and corporate social responsibility activities. They are not.

The global forces driving energy transition/transformation are changing the license to operate for energy companies. Rather than tolerating good faith efforts, investors, regulators, multilateral agencies and NGOs are now demanding additional levels of assurance around ESG targets.

Energy companies must respond with a risk-based approach. To survive, risk tools and techniques previously only applied to HSE, project and financial risk need to be applied to social and governance issues as well. For example, global regulators are now requiring risk-based (rather than check the box legal compliance) approaches to governance issues such as foreign corrupt practices.

This webinar will discuss how a risk-based approach to ESG issues is allowing energy companies to survive and thrive during the energy transition/transformation.
