Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Assessments and CCUS
16th April 2021
Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) has gone from an aspirational activity to a mainstream, essential aspect of commercial behaviour in recent years. Climate change is now synonymous with the ‘E’ in the acronym, making a corporation's exposure to climate-related risks central to ESG. But what does this mean for carbon capture and storage?
In an interactive webinar on April 15th, 2021, hosted in conjunction with the Clean Energy Ministerial an expert panel explored ESG and its relationship with CCUS. Ian Havercroft, Principal Consultant Policy Legal and Regulatory, from the Global CCS Institute presented our recent ESG thought leadership report followed by a panel discussion on the current state and future of ESG and its influence in supporting investment in CCS project deployment.
