ERM Oil & Gas Sustainability Journey Roundtable

Wednesday, 11 September 2019
Lunch 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. | Roundtable 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. | Happy Hour to follow

There is a growing sense of urgency about the sustainability challenges facing the world, and Oil & Gas companies face unique challenges in creating a corporate sustainability program that meets both commercial and societal pressures.

How can you navigate and operationalize your sustainability agenda, while ensuring investors’ expectations are addressed by your sustainability program? How can you effectively establish a strategy for addressing major issues such as climate change?

Wherever you are on your sustainability journey, you are invited to this exclusive roundtable to explore issues like these and more. ERM will facilitate a discussion featuring executives from Williams and Hess on a variety of topics, including:

  • Program governance and establishing a corporate-wide sustainability program.
  • Bridging from materiality to goal setting – practical ways to respond to investor pressures.
  • Ensuring your license to operate.

Join us at noon for lunch, followed by an afternoon of roundtable sessions in an intimate setting that promotes networking. Participate in facilitated thought-provoking discussions with your peers and bring back ideas you can apply to improve your own programs.
