With new regulatory mandates, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations has created an opportunity to build value and increase efficiency of operations. Shareholder acceptance, media pressure, customer expectations and demands are the drivers of change for oil and gas companies. Energy companies have been implementing ESG strategies for years through reduced emissions, responsible water use and disposal, and research and development into renewable energy programs. The current push to track and report ESG programs should be seen as an opportunity for oil and gas companies to promote, confirm and expand upon these efforts.
With the rise in sustainability and environmental concerns in the energy industry as well as growing conversations around current and future ESG standards, it is vital that companies are proactive rather than reactive.
