As issues around Energy Transition and ESG is a critical area of focus for PESA in the coming years, the PESA ESG Committee held a workshop on August 29 to discuss committee goals and finalizing plans for an upcoming ESG seminar, Oct 31 at Schlumberger’s Harry Cameron Technology Center in Houston. The goal of the seminar is to educate attendees about the importance of ESG and its impact to operations as well as financial markets around the oil and gas industry.
The seminar will include three panel discussions, “How to Develop an ESG Program,” Stakeholder Views of ESG” and “Investors and ESG.” These panels will give attendees the opportunity to hear from executives who have developed ESG programs and ask questions about the process.
Key takeaways from the seminar will include
- Best practices around reporting
- An understanding why both public and privately-held companies should care about ESG
- A maturity curve for companies to use as a benchmark
- The tools needed to start an ESG program
Attendees from cross-functional roles are encouraged to attend in order to gain understanding of the issue and ideas around the elements needed to develop an ESG program appropriate to their company size and scope.
The ESG Seminar is open to both PESA members and non-members. The focus of this committee is to share knowledge and best practices around industry trends and timely issues related to ESG. As this issue gains momentum within the services and equipment sector, the ESG Committee is committed to addressing topics pertinent to association members.
The PESA ESG Committee includes representation from Apergy, Baker Hughes, a GE company, Covenant Testing Technologies, Exterran Corporation, Frank’s International, NOV, Oceaneering International, Oil States Energy Services, Schlumberger, and Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure.
