Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) > Understanding and Implementing Sustainability in Oil and Gas Industry

About this Training

Sustainability has always been a key consideration in the oil and gas industry. Adherence to health, safety and environmental regulations and increasing contributions to the societies in which they operate, form the core of existing sustainability strategies. However, the growing momentum towards the transition to low carbon is creating new requirements for sustainability strategies. Evolving government climate policies, direct public and shareholder activism, and changing investment strategies by major institutions are creating urgency for oil and gas companies to reduce emissions.

This foundational course aims to equip business leaders with basic awareness and knowledge of sustainability, and serves as a foundation for businesses seeking to build capabilities for the new aspirational economy, and develop a plan for their sustainability efforts. Participants are provided access to tools and resources to assess the current sustainability readiness and performance of their own businesses.
